Four-legged friends are not just pets but family members, so they are often taken on a trip. However, a long car ride can be stressful and even dangerous for your dog.

To make it comfortable and safe, you should plan stops and take everything you need to take care of your dog. News and Star gave 5 tips for motorists with dogs in the car.

Don't forget about hydration

It will be harder for dogs than for people to stay in the car in the hot season. Don't forget to take a bowl and bottled water for your dog and offer it regularly at stops. You can also take ice cubes for your dog to lick and escape the heat.

Introduce your dog to the car

If this is your pet's first car trip, give them time to get to know the new place. Let them sniff around the cabin and choose a seat. This will make the trip less scary for the animal.

Don't forget to stop

Just like humans, four-legged friends need to stretch their paws and go to the bathroom regularly. When choosing places to stop, avoid busy streets so that the animal can relax and run around without being afraid of the noise of cars.

Don't leave your dog alone in the car

Even a short trip to the store can be stressful for an animal left alone in the car. In addition to the heat, they will also feel frightened and sad for their owners, making them nervous during the rest of the trip.

Organize a place for your pet

To reduce stress, you should take toys and a blanket or a pillow in the car that will remind your dog of home. This will make the trip more comfortable and the animal will be able to get distracted and sleep.
