Some info for those driving with a dog or those considering getting into the lifestyle. I love having my dog with me on the road but sometimes it can be an issue when stopped.

I couldn't find a sitter for Buster yesterday. I needed to get some lab tests done so bringing him in with me was not an option. I discovered a Doggy day care facility that charged $12 for 5 hours. Problem solved. In the future if I'm in a location and have the opportunity to go site seeing or need medical attention or whatever reason having my dog with me is inconvenient/forbidden I now know how to solve this problem. Hope this helps others with the same concerns.

I live in Tucson Az. There is one just off of I-10 at the Grant Road Exit. Central Pet. Although I've never used them I have heard good things. Hope this may help someone. My Dog is almost 13 years old. Can't bring her on the road, so she stays with "Grandma"! I miss her when I'm on the road. I love to meet other people's dogs out here. In my experience, animal lovers are some of the nicest people you'll meet on the road.



Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Great idea/solution! Just remember to have copy of vet records along with you. These places are fussy.

Just remember to have copy of vet records along with you.

This is VITAL if you are traveling with a pet. Several years ago I picked my dog up from visiting a friend. Late that night I noticed a bite. I called her but she didn't answer. I took Buster to an emergency vet. Since that state was in the middle of a rabies epidemic I was told that if I hadn't brought proof of a valid rabies vaccination with me at check in he would have been put in a 30 day quarantine, even if I just had to run back home to get it, and if I couldn't show proof of vaccination in 24 hours he would have been put down.

In addition to the written records kept in the truck I have photos of them on my phone where I can access them quickly.

But yes, they required proof of rabies, bordetella, and diphtheria vaccinations.
