Re: Survial Guide and Tips for the Transport Angel
Always print out the run sheet with dogs listed and MOST IMPORTANT - names and cell numbers of the legs before and after yours. You WILL need them. Arrange meeting places ahead of time and try to scope them out if you can. We found the McDonald's was an urban one with no parking.

Find out EXACTLY how many dogs in the transport. I signed on for 2, was told it was 4 and 5 + a crate of puppies arrived! If we had not called the leg ahead just to check in we would have been in deep doggy doo. As it was we needed to take both cars.
Pack everything you think you could possibly need and then some. ALWAYS pack chocolate -- for the driver. Take two Excedrin followed by a Hershey bar and hit the road... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rotflmao.gif[/img]
