Seriously I couldn’t wait to get on the road for Florida. We had done this drive just two years earlier in 2016 so we semi knew what to expect except this time it was January instead of March. The initial goal was to get as far south as possible as fast as we could as there was a blizzard in the forecast so we were basically racing it. It was of course still freezing most of the time but once we got out of North Dakota it was nice to be above -30 degrees(yes, -30 degrees fahrenheit).

We did 3 big road trips with our dog over the last year: North Dakota to Florida and back North Dakota to Vegas and back North Dakota to Ohio and back Add inΒ numerous trips from North Dakota to Minneapolis, MN and we did well over 100 hours of driving with our fur baby. We also aren’t the type of people who stop for the night on our road trips which adds its own special challenges when traveling with a dog. So how do we make sure we don’t have a wild pup jumping around or even having accidents in the car? Make Lots of Stops The longer the trip, the more stops to plan to make, especially as you get to the end of the drive since your pup will be more restless. Tire them out BEFORE…
