What if your pets can tweet their complaints away when travelling with you? Most choose to bring their pets along with them. This gives them a light-hearted feeling that is enough to make them withstand the irritating traffics and body-numbing long trips. In as much as you are all prepped up for the road adventure that had been from the Holidays or you will have this new year, you might be overlooking some pointers to consider when tagging your Garfield or Snoopy with you. I want to explore what my pet can possibly be tweeting about me for being such a pain-in-the-neck chic just because of the hassles I have probably caused her! I think, you do too!

“Oh no! Your car is making me sick, girl! 0_o” #savemefromthisweirdo

Is this your pet’s first time to ride a car? If it is, make sure you get him accustomed to it first. You don’t want to be startled when they instinctively bite or scratch you because you stepped on the brakes, right? Do yourself a favour by ensuring that they are properly-vaccinated as well. Check their reactions while driving your sedan. Some might drool non-stop because they feel nauseous and might throw up any time.

“Really? She forgot about my kit! XP” #getreadyforpoopergalore

If you care enough to bring your toiletries with you, I hope you do not exclude that of your pet unless you are ready to scoop her poops from your car rug. Keep a full gear of his pooper scooper, waste bags, extra leash, portable water bowls and bottled water. Most importantly, bring his small first-aid kit and extra leash. If something unexpected happened, at least you have enough stuffs with you that you can count on.

“So you think you can GPS me, huh?” #finderskeepers

Have you attached an identification tag to your pet just in case he runs away to explore the unfamiliar terrain you visited on? You don’t want to be mortified by knocking every house just to ask where your pet has gone to, right? The tag must have salient information such as your pet’s name, your name, address and contact details. However, it is even wiser to keep your pet strapped. No matter how complete these data-tags plunging his necklines are, if the finder felt so endeared by the charm of your Snoopy - you will never get to see him again.

“No squeakies! You gotta be kidding me! T-T” #screwthegrinch

A dreadful long trip can make Snoopy anxious inside a vehicle. Never allow him to place his head out of the window. He might hurt himself by any sharp object that can come swiftly passing by. He may also be prone to an inner ear damage or lung infections. Instead, you can bring his all-time favourite chewy toys – his squeakies! Bring as well his comfy pillow so he can behave well inside the car.

“I am freaking hungry! My intestines are killing me!” #sheistryingtokillme

Make sure you feed him 2-3 hours before heading off out of town. This will keep him invigorated the whole time. Avoid feeding him in a moving vehicle. Stop and park the car in one area and feed him outside. Be sensitive to his body language and give him time to have his bathroom breaks.

“I’m all bruised up here. I am sure as hell that I need my vet!” #iwanttogohome

Rocky terrains can be awfully dizzy to them so better be ready with a comfortable crate you can place them in. Make sure you buckle them up. Apprehensive pets tend to circle around you - fleeting away your focus on the wheels. You don’t want to end up in an accident or worse to have your pet thrown like a cannon ball after a possible collision.

“Are you crazy?!?! Do you really want to fry me up here like a real hotdog?” #dontleavemeherecreep

Do not leave your pet alone in the car even if it would just be for a short time. Owners underestimate the time they will be away from their pets. The moment you see your favourite slurpy in a convenient store – you might be all mesmerized to purchase more and forget your poor pet that you have left behind. Regardless of the season, the ruthless temperature can either scorched them or froze them to death.

As responsible stewards of your lovable pets, make sure you have everything checked. I bet, you do not want them to experience these possible inconveniences that can be equally bothersome for you, too. Have a great bonding trip with your pets this 2014!
