More Advice for You & Your Puppy
Some puppies may also feel more reassured in a travel kennel or carrier. Alternatively, use a leash or a harness to attach to the seat belt, to restrain your puppy for safety reasons. This will prevent them from moving around in the vehicle.
Whether in a kennel or not, provide your puppy with a comfortable blanket and toys.
Some puppies can be affected by motion sickness. Try not to feed your puppy for at least 4 hours before travelling (but do not limit water)
Keep the vehicle well ventilated. Never leave your puppy unattended in the car on a warm day.
