Road Trip Pup Stops

Nothing’s better than a good old road trip adventure with your canine companion. All you need is a good playlist, an open road, and the windows down. Oh, and one other thing: rest stops. They may not be the most fun part of the trip, but they are definitely necessary.

When traveling with your pup, it’s important to stop at least every 3 hours to let your dog go to the bathroom and stretch their legs. We hate being trapped in the car for hours, and our furry friends are no different.

When looking for a place to stop, heading to a pet-friendly rest area is always your best choice. These pit stops usually have a nice green area for your pet to romp around in, and some even have extra poop bags to help you clean up when you’re on-the-go.

If you’re anywhere near the Vermont area, make sure to stop by the Guilford Welcome Center. They have a beautiful barn and plenty of rolling hills for you and your pup to explore. Plus, rumor has it they give out free maple candy at the front desk.

If you can’t find a pet-friendly rest area, just try to find as much green space as possible for your best furry friend. Any sort of break where they can hop out of the car and walk around can really help them be the best road trip partner they can be.
