Roadtripping With Dogs 👌🏻

Here I will list the most helpful thing we learned for doggy road trips
First let's start with the prep. Clean out your car and if you don't already have a car seat cover buy one, trust me it helps keep off the dog fur and dog stink.
Plan out some dog parks every few hours (we chose a variety of dog parks so we have options back and forth). My suggestion is to download the app "Bring Fido" onto your phone and it will pull up dog parks around you.
We found that the best and easiest place to stay was just Motel 6's along the way, we also stayed La Quinta and both were very nice and all the staff were super sweet to our dogs as well.
For food we packed the puppy chow with some canned food and "moist meat" for our older dog who isn't eating that well to begin with. We did a meal for breakfast before we left and then one when we got into the next hotel at night. We gave them water at our stops along the way.
We bought three metallic bowls (two for their food, one for water). We also bought 3 gallons of water for the dogs for along the trip and brought about 10 bottles of water for the two of us both ways. Our two dogs (11yo Aussie about 45 pounds and 9mo Aussie x Lab who's pictured in the cover who's about 50 pounds now) drank a gallon of water for each way.
We brought along our 2 dog crates, mainly for our puppy who still chews and isn't fully trusted out and about alone at night. We did that so if we needed to leave the two dogs in the room to go grab food then we could just crate them and they'd be great.
We also had leashes which buckle into the seat and kept the dogs on their harnesses and attached to their walking leash as well as the seat buckle leash.
