Pack your car for convenience
Make a thoughtful list of everything you’ll need, keeping in mind that stopping for new snacks or supplies with your pet will be a challenge. Arrange the space in your car so everything you need for your pet is easy to access when he needs it, including pet travel bowls, treats, waste bags, medication, leashes, first aid kit, toys, and blankets.
Meeting Rover’s potty needs is simple: head to the nearest rest stop, and make sure you keep waste bags and supplies on hand to clean up after him.
Managing your own potty breaks, however, is a bit more complicated. Pets shouldn’t be left alone in a car, so what can you do when nature calls? Find a pet-friendly business, and use their restroom. Pet stores like Petco and PetSmart, and pet-friendly hotel chains like Red Roof Inn, La Quinta, and Motel 6, will let you use their facilities with your pet.
