Today, we’re gearing up for a new adventure: Our first road trip with both dogs!
I’m a little anxious, to say the least. It’s a 4.5-hour drive, one way. We’re attending the wedding of a family friend and will be staying with my parents. Both dogs love my parents, so they’ll be happy to be with them, and this will be Eden’s first visit, and her first time meeting Dublin.
They’ve taken short trips together in the back seat of our little hatchback and did fine, but they are big dogs, and they take up all of the space (not to mention our luggage and their crates).
The worry factors: Pyrrha doesn’t like to cuddle or share space with other dogs. Pyrrha likes to stretch out and sleep in the back seat on car trips. Which she, clearly, will no longer be able to do.
The good/reality factors: They are both very good and quiet in the car (no car sickness, no frantic energy). And we don’t really have another option! So we’ll see how it goes. I’m sure we’ll be taking many more stops than we usually do, so they can stretch their (cramped) legs.
How do you travel on the road with your dog(s)? Anything that you’ve found that makes it more bearable with two?
