10 Best Travel Accessories for Dogs

I am a huge dog lover! I have two at the moment, but would definitely have more if room permitted, and we didn’t travel much. How do dogs and traveling relate? There are decisions to make on how to provide care for your dog(s) while you are away. The options that are available are bringing them with you, finding someone to make house visits, or have them stay at a boarding facility. Boarding can be very expensive. Our family has been extremely fortunate as our Australian Shepherd’s breeder does boarding. She takes great care of the dogs in her care and we highly respect her. With that being said, we have traveled with our dogs in the past. Listed below are 10 travel accessories to bring while traveling with dogs. A few of these items I have used (and wouldn’t travel without), but I have also listed a few pieces that I haven’t, but will definitely be trying out in the future.

1. Top Dog Travel Bag – Airline Approved

This bag is amazing! In the past I used a beach bag to carry everything, but this is a game changer. There is a divider inside to keep everything organized. On the sides of the bag there is a pocket for a water bottle, and the other side has a zipper pouch. The bag also includes an insulated storage container for food and treats. The container can hold up to 13 cups of dog food. The bag also provides two collapsible bowls. If there is one thing to take on a trip, this is it! https://amzn.to/32MFol0

2. The Absolute Kitchen Reusable Airtight Pet Storage Container

If your dog’s travel bag doesn’t include food storage containers, you may be opted to store their food in plastic bags. You can help keep the environment cleaner by using these storage bags by The Absolute Kitchen. These containers are built to last and can be washed and used over again. They are even dishwasher safe! https://amzn.to/39hkPzl

3. Comsun 2-Pack Extra Large Collapsible Dog Bowls

I love carrying around these collapsible bowls, whether we are out on a long walk or on a road trip. It’s a convenience to always have a vessel ready to offer your dog a fresh drink of water. https://amzn.to/2vydeOb

4. RC Pet Products Pet First Aid Kit

You never want to be stuck in a situation where your pet needs medical attention. Having a first aid kit is especially helpful if your are hiking. This kit includes bandages, gloves, gauze pads, antiseptic and more. https://amzn.to/32HjMGw

5. AmazonBasics Enhanced Dog Waste Bags

This item is good for everyday use and not just for traveling. I just wanted to share, because the bargain is too good not to. We live in a condo and don’t have a huge back yard. This means we take lots of walks. These bags are thick, have a nice scent, and an amazing price! If you go through a lot of waste bags, you will definitely want to save this link. https://amzn.to/2Te366u

6. Zesty Paws Advanced Calming Bites

Many dogs have heightened anxiety while traveling. It’s such an exciting time to be out with their humans. We have been fortunate that our dogs do well in the car…now. When our Australian Shepherd was a puppy, she would always get car sick. She outgrew it. If she didn’t I definitely would have given these calming bites a try. They have excellent reviews. https://amzn.to/2PCSITl

7. Doggie World Dog Car Seat Cover

This car seat cover works in cars, Suvs and trucks. It will keep your dog safe and your seats clean. I also love how it has a seat belt that can attach to their harness, and a flap to protect the sides of the seat. This car seat cover is machine washable. https://amzn.to/38ft25O

8. Vastar 2 Pack Adjustable Pet Dog Car Seat Belt

This seat belt is designed to keep your dog away from the center console. It is so easy to use. Simply click the belt hook to your furry friends’ harness and they will be safe on your travels. https://amzn.to/39iIIGN

9. Trunk Cargo Liner

We don’t have one of these yet, but it is literally sitting in my Amazon cart (as we speak) for later . When we travel with the pups, we always take them in the suv. This means that there is dog hair EVERYWHERE. Having this insert will save time, as you can just shake it out and throw it in the washing machine as needed. https://amzn.to/39iBaDR

10. Car Dog Barrier

On short trips I usually have my pups in the backseat without a belt or seat protector. My Australian Shepherd constantly tries to hop in the front seat, so I will be purchasing one of these shortly. The mesh barrier is also great; as you can detach it from one side, and use it as a storage bag when your dogs aren’t traveling with you. https://amzn.to/2Th4tRV

I hope that my list will be helpful for you on your next travel, which includes your furry family member. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of these items or have any other recommendations.
