As you plan ahead, consider bringing an electronic copy of your dog’s vaccination record, microchip number, and any licensing or tag information. Be sure to pack your dog’s essentials, including food, water, bowls, toys, treats, and medications. Ask your veterinarian about the need for dog shoes, depending on the time of year you travel and your travel plans, such as hiking.
