Traveling with your dog? These are our essential items for canine adventure (and Oliver's too.)
A Dog Friendly Water Bottle
This water bottle by Gulpy is perfect for travel; it’s easy and safe to carry and it has a flip down dish for the dog to drink from. Oliver's Gulpy was actually inherited by his "predecessor" (our late, beloved first dog, Chester), and it's been going strong for nearly 10 years. And, believe it or not, our cat Darwyn happily used it on a roadtrip as well. If she would lower herself to share a dish with a dog, it's clearly a winner!

If you are staying at a base for the duration of your trip, you may also want to consider getting a temporary dog tag with your accommodation’s address and phone number. For the couple of dollars you will spend on one, it’s worth it to have the extra peace of mind.
Last but not least, an old T-shirt. Really!
I also like this tip: Shortly after you check into your hotel room, leave your dog behind and go for a short walk, acting very nonchalant. Return after 20 minutes or so to give your pooch the message that when you leave, you will return and nothing bad will happen in the room while you're away.
