Traveling With Dogs

Whenever I am traveling, I like to take my dog Blue with me.  Blue is not the only dog I have, but he is the only one that travels with me on a regular basis.

Why do I often leave the other dogs at home?

The answer is not based on favoritism.  Instead, it is based on the personality of the dog.

Blue enjoys traveling and is not easily frightened by new experiences.  Blue is also obedient and has excellent recall, which makes it safer to travel with him.

Before you decide to travel with your dog, consider if the dog will enjoy the trip.  How will the dog react to something they have never seen or done before?  Also, what is the training and obedience level of the dog?  How reliable is the dog when being recalled?

Don’t base your decision to travel with a dog on your desires.  Base it on the safety and well being of your dog.
