Michelle Willox from Diverse K9 Training and her pup Thistle visited Charlotte Today on Thursday to give tips and tricks for taking your pup on a fun, summer road trip. 

The first thing you need to do is make sure you pack everything you need. A good thing to have handy also is the number of a vet in the town you are visiting in case of emergency.

Next thing to do is make sure you look up the rules and restrictions of the dog friendly places you are visiting. Just because they are dog friendly does not mean there won't be any rules. 

Also make sure you have weather safety items with you especially during the hot months. Boots, cooling pads, and other items to protect them form the heat. 

Lastly, try not to use the rest stop dog parks. They are not maintained regularly and you don't know if the dogs at these parks have all of their vaccines.
