  1. Hey there, loved the article! Any advice on how to make car rides more comfortable for my furry friend?

    1. Hi Katie, thank you for reading!

      My dog Roscoe can be a bit of an anxious passenger, so here are some of the tips I’ve found for keeping him calm and comfortable. 1. The hammock-style car seat cover I recommended above is great not only for protecting your seats, but also for creating a cozy and safe space for your pup in the backseat. My dog loves stretching out and will quickly fall asleep this way! 2. Make sure to keep the temperature in the car comfortable for your pup. Some cars don’t have air vents in the backseat, so make sure there’s a good flow of air or crack the windows to keep cool air circulating. 3. If your dog tends to get motion sick, try not to take your car ride when he has a full stomach. Try to schedule your feed a few hours before you leave, and if you have to stop along the way for a meal break, allow plenty of time for his tummy to settle. 4. Can’t stress enough the importance of frequent stops – allow lots of extra time so you can stop, offer your dog water, stretch his legs, get excess energy out, etc. 5. Bring along a favorite toy or stuffie for your dog. My dog finds comfort in mouthing on his favorite bed, so we throw that in the back seat with him to help keep him settled. 6. These haven’t necessarily worked for my dog, but there are some calming treats out there that might work for your dog. I might recommend asking your vet for recommendations.

      Hoping that helps and wishing you happy travels with your furry friend! Let me know if you have any other questions or recommendations for a follow up article! 🙂
