Some people prefer to travel with their favorite pets – cats, dogs, parrots, even monkeys! Some travelers call to our motorhome service center Tacoma and ask to give them some advices for travelling with animals, because they had some accidents with pets.
First, teach your pet to use pee pads, especially if you do not like to stop 10 times a day during a trip. Such thing like a pee pad can make your life easily! That is a great point, you may ride longer you thought before and you can be sure that your pet knows where to go if you do not want to stop.

Please, crate you pets! Keep your pet in a special space in a car and do not let them to run out. Take your pet with you when you lock your car and do not leave a pet inside, because the air goes out.
