Traveling with your best friend around town or on a longer road trip can be rewarding for you and your dog with a bit of planning.

1.  Feed your dog 3 hours prior to leaving on a long trip.  Take your dog for a walk just before you start the drive and he/she will be more comfortable as the trip gets underway.

2.  To reduce driver distraction use a restraining harness or barrier.  They come in different sizes to fit all breeds and are available at pet supply stores.

3.  Long road trips can be boring for children; make sure your dog and children each have adequate room.  A barrier or harness can ensure each stay in their own space.

4. Keep the car well ventilated.

5. During stops, provide fresh water.  Stop frequently for exercise and bathroom breaks.  Every 2-3 hours is recommended.  Always put your dog on a leash before letting him out of the car.

6.  Never ever leave your dog unattended in a closed vehicle.

7.  Feed your dog shortly after you arrive at your destination or when you have stopped for the day.

Ww may have talked to the same lady. This weeeknd there was a Pet Expo here in Colorado and a new customer was telling us the story how she was pulled over by an attachment which connects to the seat. What makes the Bike-a-Buddy different is a low attachment on both sides of the bicycle. We also designed a spring system which allows the dog to pull. There are times where a distraction ie. squirrel other dog runs across our path but as long as we are moving forward the dog's momentum keeps them moving with the bike. If you get a chance to watch our videos online ( watch how Buddy the dogs pulls. It doesn't get much worse than that.Thanks again,Terry
