Driving Across Country

The dogs and I are temporarily relocating to Arizona while hubs is deployed. My mom is flying out here and then were packing up the dogs and driving taking a southern route to avoid snow. We did it once before but with only one dog when I moved from Arizona to here. Well be staying at Motel 6s since they are Pit Bull friendly, cheap, and can be found everywhere. We have no clue when well stop so we dont have that planned out. Just drive as far as we can for as long as we can then stop for the night or when well need to gas up and stretch the doggie legs.

Do we need to look up everywhere Pit Bulls are banned along our way? Our dogs have NC tags and will be traveling with full records. Also, anybody know of any calming supplement for them? Mayday about has a heart attack in the truck. Hes been riding in the truck since 6 weeks old and still cant stand it. Something without having to go to the vet since our vet is about as helpful as a box of rocks. Gunner freaking loves the truck. He doesnt care if its just sitting in the driveway, he just likes to be in it.

So anybody else travel across country with your dogs? Any horror stories or good stories? Anything we should know along the way?

I don't think its necessary to look up everywhere they are banned since you are just passing through; however, always keep them on a leash and never leave them unsupervised or allow them to run around when you stop because you just never know what might happen. Kangol always goes with me everywhere and no horror stories here. Koby always goes with my ex/son's father out to Moab to go ride for a week and he never has any problems either. Both of my boys have always been excellent car riders though. My suggestion for your dog that doesn't like the car is to give Benadryl. It will make him sleepy and hopefully calm him down and let him nap.
I wish you the best of luck on your journey! Keep us posted!

Just an FYI, I have had a few bulldogs that get car sick. None of my other dogs (hunting breeds) have ever been that way. So, if your dog starts acting funny and gets a little frothy around his mouth you may want to pull over and let him run around a bit. Benedryl also helps for N/V.

Whenever I travel with my dogs, I feed them light the night before and morning of travel (approximately half what I normally feed). Give them plenty of water though. Then when you take a pit stop, give em a doggy biscuit or two. That usually will stimulate their gut enough to get them to relieve themself at the rest stop instead of five minutes after you've left the rest stop

Thanks! Our dogs never go off leash so no worries there. Ill keep an eye out in case he looks sick and go buy some Benadryl tonight while I'm out.
