Bring Your Pet on Your Family Road Trip in a Land Rover SUV

July 8th, 2019 by

Bringing your pet on a road trip this summer doesn’t have to be a headache – especially if you follow some simple steps to make your vacation a walk in the park!  First and foremost, it’s important to make sure your pet’s tags are up-to-date and that you have any vaccination records with you, just in case there are any issues.  Your Land Rover SUV will also need to be made as pet-safe as possible.   Make sure to have their crate or carrier, and even harness, for your pet to stay safe in the back of the vehicle.   This will also help keep them from obscuring your view while driving. 

Before your trip, you should make sure that your pet is solid on its obedience.  Commands such as sit, stay, and heel are especially important.  Keep a bag of treats close by to reward your dog when they listen.  Always keep a container water since your pet should always have access to water during the trip.  Plus, remember to give your pet frequent breaks to be able to use the bathroom. 

Lastly, you should pack a variety of products for your pet for the trip.  These should include their food and water bowls, their favorite toys, waste bags, first aid kit, and their leash.  Your pet should be kept comfortable with their favorite things.  Vehicle travel can be stressful for a pet, so these items will help keep them at ease.   

Land Rover offers plenty of pet friendly additions you can add to your vehicle.  These include a ramp, pet packs, a portable rinse system, and quilted liners.  The video above highlights some of those items.  At Land Rover Colorado Springs we can help you find the perfect pet friendly features to add into your Land Rover or Range Rover vehicle!  Contact us today and we will assist you in making your road trip even better for the whole family!
