What a great idea!
If you’re planning on taking a road trip with your dog, know that you are not alone. Since prehistory, people have travelled with their dog at their heels. So, relax, this is not as risky or zany as you think. If your dog is your best friend, then of course, when you take an adventure on the road, your dog should be there with you, too.
John Steinbeck, an American novelist, had a dog named Charley whom he took with him as he traveled the American countryside. Perhaps you can read that book in order to get some idea how it was to travel with a dog on the American roadway. Of course, John Steinbeck wrote this non-fiction book in the 1950s and it got published only in the 1960s. America has changed a whole lot since then, but you can still get a lot of insight from the book.
One thing we have that John Steinbeck did not have is a camera phone. What you can do is start a blog or create a page on facebook. Upload pictures of your dog while you are traveling. As you upload the pictures, perhaps it would help if you could put in your thoughts and observations. For instance, if you find a hotel that has a pet spa where your dog can be pampered, I’m sure this is going to be a hit with other pet lovers who may happen to browse your page.
You can write down tips and tricks for when you travel so that you can help other pet owners who may be planning a road trip adventure with their dog. If you find a particular product that is useful or a device that is nifty and handy, you can make a review of that product. If you bought it from an online store, the online store will probably appreciate a good and fair review of their product from you. There are a lot of things you can do when you travel with your dog not only to document the trip but also to squeeze as much fun and meaning from it.
