The Best Road-Trip Gear for Dogs

The key to road-tripping with your pooch is to have a plan, pack appropriately, and be flexible. We’ve put together of a list of the must-haves, wish-we-coulds, and why-nots for making the miles pass quickly and quietly.

Kong Classic Chew Toy ($7)

Never hit the open road without at least one of these in the car. When everything else goes bad, stuff a treat into your trusted Kong, and your traveling companion is sure to be distracted long enough to let you deal with the trouble. There are actually websites dedicated to the art of layering different treats together, but we recommend tried-and-true fillings like canned pumpkin, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, and wild game.
