    I have a collapsible water dish in our two car's (one in each car, they stay in there) & a spill prof bowl in the RV. Then I just grab a cold water out of the fridge as I leave for me & the pup.

    In addition to having lots of water on hand and a water bowl in the car and on hikes, I take along a small container with a lid of one dog food meal serving for each of my dogs.
    That way if we are out and about – they don’t have to wait until we get home to eat. Also good to carry in case of emergency.

    Another must-have is a splash proof water bowl. We travel in a Class A motorhome, and it's fantastic. We will be doing an RVing with dogs (and cat) video sometime this summer!

    We have had our dogs sprayed by skunks twice while camping.  So for us we always keep hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and Dawn dish soap in the trailer.  Mix these together and use it to remove the skunk spray from their fur.  Works great and its cheap.  Never use water..

    Tip…If your pet is traveling in the same vehicle (mine is a bus conversion) as the driver, you really should have a way to keep the dog under strict control (ours is a kennel) should you get pulled over by police. I am not kidding when I say, that the police get nervous (understandably) when a pet is lose and not under control (especially big dogs). My grand daughters know that should we get pulled over, the first thing that is said "Officer, we have a dog on board and if you wouldn't mind my grand daughter removing her seat belt to secure the dog in his kennel please, in case you need to board the bus" The officer that pulled us over last year was very appreciative that we made that a priority. (tail light out…LOL) They are carrying guns folks and if your pet gets nervous with strangers etc… love them enough to make sure that an "accident" doesn't happen! Happy travels folks…because…"It's A Wander-FULL Life"!

    I hate to be a critic because people can be so mean sometimes with their comments…so plz take this with the silliness that it is intended…PET SHAMPOO? for the "MUST HAVE" list?…LOL…ok ok, we all have our priorities, but I would have definitely put the collar and ID ahead of the pet shampoo…LOL…otherwise, great video…as we are planning to take our dog on the road this year, all the tips certainly help…and yes…(sigh)…I will take along the pet shampoo for dry skin…LOL

    Pet first aid kit. My wife put one together for our motorhome when we take the dogs to the dog show and it has come in handy several times. Just to name a few… meds for diarrhea; keep styptic powder to stop bleeding in cases of minor cuts or torn nails; diphenhydramine (or Benadryl) is an antihistamine that can be used temporarily for mild allergic reactions; Hydrogen peroxide can also be kept in a dog first aid kit, as it can inducing vomiting and help get rid of ingested toxins or foreign objects. However, this should only be under the direction of a veterinarian, as some toxins or materials will cause more harm if they are vomited up. Additionally, hydrogen peroxide should never be given to a cat; Nutrical is important for small breed dogs when they get stressed. You can google this on the web and build a kit from the many different answers you get. But a pet first aid kit is on the top of our list of must haves when traveling with our chihuahuas.

    This is prob a given, vet and shot records. I would keep two copies. One in the rv, and one in the truck. God forbid if anything would happen (dog fight, injuries, ect). Without that record there on spot they will normally take the dog for hold until they get proof. If the proof isnt available at all they will keep them for weeks sometimes on a rabies hold, and legal reasons. Some of the places these dogs are keep are horrible, and can wind up costing a lot as well. Good job on the list 🙂
