One of the best parts of traveling cross-country in an RV is the opportunity to spend time with your whole family, including your furry friends. Just throw the dog beds in the back and pack some extra food and you're on your way!
Here are a few tips for making your RV trips dog-friendly.
Food and Water
The best way to travel with your pet is to put them on a regular feeding schedule before you leave home. This will help control the timing of the always-necessary potty breaks as well as ensure that they stay healthy on the go.
If your dog has a special diet, make sure you pack enough food to get you through the entire trip as you may not be able to find your dog's preferred brand in other regions. Changing foods unexpectedly can upset your dog's stomach and they may refuse to eat. Don't forget to pack bones or other chew toys to keep them occupied in between meals.
Even the best-behaved dogs can find themselves with an unexpected illness or injury on the road. Make sure you keep a copy of your dog's shot records and vet info on hand in case you have to make an emergency stop. This will ensure that your dog can be treated properly, even if they have pre-existing health conditions.
Choose Dog-Friendly RV Resorts
Many RV parks in Albuquerque, NM, and around the country have started adding amenities for dogs. Your dog may love riding with you in the RV, but they also need an opportunity to stretch their legs and exercise after a long day on the road. Some RV parks have strict rules for walking your pets, while the most dog-friendly RV parks have off-leash play areas and room for dogs to run.
