    Default what's the longest car ride..

    your bully has went on?? My husband contemplated taking Chester for an hour car ride to go pick my daughter up at the ski slopes. I was afraid he might barf. At the very least, it was going to be a long ride if he got nervous and starting passing wind But, have you taken your bully on a long car ride?
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    HRH went to Ohio with us over Christmas. About 7 hours because we stopped extra for her. An hour probably wouldn't be a big deal as long as he is already ok with short trips around town.

    We took Chesty across the U.S. when he was 1. That is from Seattle to Boston. Chesty loved it.

    My In-Laws live about 51/2 hrs away. We make the trip several times a year. We have 4 dogs (3 bullies) and they do just fine

    We have gone on over 6 hours. It is in the RV which means they can get up, walk around and drink if they want too, but most of the time they just sit on my lap...

    We took our oldest Boston on a road trip to Fort Myers, FL from Dallas, TX this past summer. We stopped in Biloxi, MS both ways. He wore a seat belt and did great! We had to stop a lot more with him to get out and walk around, but other than that he was such a good dog! The hotel we stayed at in Biloxi was dog friendly and he was trying to makes friends with everyone.

    Hi,
    We took at trip from Phx Az to Las Vegas (about 6 hrs) when our Poppa Mack was only 8 months old. We have an SUV, that we bedded in the back and he rode back there. We had been taking him for short rides to the petstore, vet, etc so he was somewhat ready to roll. We had people in the back seat that could keep an eye on him to watch for any symptoms. We made sure we stopped early for potty breaks and to give him a chance to get his "ground legs" back after the motion of the ride. He stood for the first 2 hours and would not lay down, but gravity finally took over and then he laid down. The trip was smooth, not problems, not accidents and enjoyed taking him to the LV~EBD Show.
    Start off on short trips, and then work up.
    BTW, we once shipped a puppy from Az to New York state and it was a 9 day van ride. Of couse the puppy was SOOOOO cute, the transporters held him the entire trip so I'm not sure if that counts or not?

    Samson's longest trip was 4-5 hours and he has taken that drive MANY times. He is great in the car, always a VERY good boy. I think Chester will do fine. Samson never puked even on very windy mountain roads. Maybe just don't let him eat or drink alot RIGHT before the drive.

    Duke has been on several long hauls across the US. We have a cage that sits in the back of the van and it has a water attachment bottle to allow him a drink of water when ever he wants. We stop about every 2 hours to stretch and allow him to do his thing. We never feed him until we arrive or until we stop for the night. We do give him dog biscuits occassionally. So normally it takes him about 15 minutes on the road, and he's falling asleep in the cage.
    For local trips (less than 1 hour) he just lays in the back seat of the van, or looks out the side windows. He never has gotten sick.......but.......when we arrive.......he always has to mark his territory. People driving by love to see him staring at them through the side windows. You'ld think he was a celebrity.

    Lucy does well on all trips and has been on some big ones with her daddy whilst working.
    When she was a baby though and we 1st brought her home she had a 3hr drive to endure with breaks of course, she wasnt keen but slowly got used to the car on short local trips. Now she enjoys being in the car
