5 Holiday Pet Travel Tips Plus Gift Ideas
1. Have a PLAN
Research and learn about your destination. It’s essential that you plot the rest stops and every 3-4 hours provide care for your pet; like drink water, go potty and stretch. Also, in case of emergency, make a list of veterinary hospitals along your way.
2. Car Safety Precautions
Keep your pet safe in the car with a travel harness or crate. The backseat is the safest spot for dogs to be.
KORU BEAR uses Sleepypod Clickit Terrain, a high-performance car safety harness. This dog harness was rigorously tested and performed to Sleepypod’s high safety standards. Center for Pet Safety rated Sleepypod Clickit Terrain 5-star.

4. Bring Other Necessities
Besides all KORU BEAR’s necessities, I also bring the following items:
a) Toys, Toys, Toy
As a young pup, it is important to keep KORU BEAR active and entertained.
The JW Pet Hol-ee Gourmet dog toys are pawfect two-in-one treat toy that encourages interactive and rewarding play. KORU BEAR’s loves the Hol-ee Gourmet Turkey Leg.
KORU BEAR loves balls and a fetch fanatic. On our travels the Chuckit! ® Locator Sound Ball is pawfect. This ball discharges an audible pulse sound every few seconds to help both pet parents and dogs locate the ball in any terrain after launch.
b) Pet Care
To keep your dog clean, the Quick Bath pre-moistened wipes are pawfect to use. The extra thick and heavy duty wipes is ideal for big dogs like KORU BEAR.
The Tushee Wipe Quick Bath is a convenient way to clean-up your dog (cat or other small animals).
It’s important to care for your dog’s teeth when traveling. Dental chews WHIMZEES are KORU BEAR’s favorite. WHIMZEES’s vegetable-based texture helps remove plaque and tartar. The fun chew shapes plus knobby grooves help hard to reach spaces and scrape away plaque and tartar build-up.
Some pets get anxious going to new places. The CALMZ Anxiety Relief System is a wearable solution to help dog anxiety. It’s a non-invasive therapeutic device that helped KORU BEAR a lot during our hotel stays.
5. Keep it Normal
Keep your pet on their regular schedule; like feeding them and taking them for their walk as close to the regular time as possible.
Most of these pet travel gift ideas are available on Amazon, Chewy.com, PetSmart, Petco and other pet retailers.
Have a safe and wonderful travel with your pet.
