Re: Long trip with a dog. What do you guys reccomend?
I moved across the country with my spouse, two (large) dogs and three cats in a pickup towing a car. What fun! All animals had their own crate, cats in the truck back seat and dogs in the truck bed mostly covered with a tarp (this was in June, nice weather!), and I stopped about every hour/hour and a half to take them out on a leash, water, etc... Every time I looked in, they were fine, sometimes sleeping, sometimes looking around, sometimes barking at another car with a dog in it. Had the tailgate up to avoid any fume issues. Nights in motels on the first floor, paid the pet fee.
Made it from Cali to Mass in about 5 days healthy, happy, and nobody strangled anyone else.
