Responsible Dog Owners Month

Dog Ownership Responsibility
As a part of supporting "Responsible Dog Owners Month" in September 2006, we are providing educational materials to help the Pet Community become more informed. Owning a dog is a responsibility, not just a privilege. Their care entails more than just food & shelter - they deserve our love and attention.
If you are a dog breeder, we provide a means for you to advertise on our site, be listed in our Dog Breeders Directory, and we even direct you to Internet marketing tools to expand and grow your online business and website.
Today's Tip from Breeders USA - The Dog Breeders Directory
Traveling With Your Dog
Your new puppy should be car-trained if your family travels a lot by car. Small dogs usually make the best travel companions by car while some larger dogs don't look forward to this experience. Of course, there are always exceptions depending on each dog's personality, size of vehicle and the length of the trip.
Car seats and containment seats are now available and can be secured with your current seat belts. Some form of restraint is now being considered mandatory by many states and municipalities around the country. You will want to keep informed on these issues, particularly when traveling through different states.
Your dog should always wear a collar with an I.D. tag, and rabies vaccination tag, in case the unthinkable happens and you are separated from your dog. Some dog owners are utilizing the newest method of identification which is the microchip. Most veternarians have information on this, and this is certainly a choice for the pet owner.
Be mindful to give the same consideration of your dog's needs as you would for yourself when preparing for any trip.
- A sturdy leash should be at the top of your list
- Medicines needed
- Adequate food supply and treats
- A favorite sleeping basket or blanket
- Portable water bowl
- A toy or chew toy
Certainly other modes of travel are being used more and more when traveling with pets. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) restrictions govern air travel for pets. Become familiar and comply with these guidelines to provide your dog with a pleasant travel experience. Whatever mode of transportation you choose, with careful planning and forethought, your best friend will enjoy the experience as much and you do.
