    When we go visit my family in PA, which is about 5 hrs from me. I take Ruthie for a nice long walk before we go and we stop, usually twice for about 15-20 mins to let her walk around. By the trip back she's completely wore out cause she likes to play and be a "country dog" while she's there. Have a safe trip!

    Does your baby like car rides? If yes, all you need to do is potty stops every 2 or 3 hours with a short walk to stretch legs

    The potty breaks and fresh water when you stop...which, of course, means additional potty breaks! Dudley loves the car and I've been shocked at what a great traveler he is every time!

    When we go on long trips with ours we take food and water for them and a toy or two. We stop every 2 or 3 hours, usually when we need to take a potty break and walk them and let them get water. They usually sleep the whole way. We have SUV's so they stay in their crates in the back are are comfortable. Take some towels and paper towels too.

    I went on a 13 hour trip alone, with 2- 4 mo. pups, and 2yr.old and 1 yr. old(furkids!) It was all of their's first trip-other than to the vet! They were so good, I was so proud of them. I had 3 car seats-the two pups shared one. Every few hours, I stopped and took turns walking them. I always take some doggie treats, water, and of course, their food and toys. The pups would drink but my other dogs don't drink on a trip.I don't really feed them, but offer them a treat after they walk-and water. They all slept on the whole trip, except when I stopped. Just act like it;s no big deal and don't be nervous-he will feel that. You should have a great trip! Safe journey!

    Winston does really well on long car rides. I usually stop every couple of hours as well to stretch legs / go potty / get a drink. Since he's usually sleeping through the day while I'm at work, he sleeps through most of the longer trips (I try to leave early in the morning and drive through the day when traffic is lighter).

    Mack looked quite like he enjoyed the trip and was totally relaxed. Good for him. I am glad you had a good trip with him!

    Dodge never had more than 1 hour of car ride and he prefer to sleep so we don't have much experience to share. Hoping for your smooth travel..
