Hope this is the right place for this. In a few months, we're moving from the Southeast to Southern California. We're thinking of having our Ram pickup and Jeep transported cross country. We also have a Dodge Intrepid, which is an extra car we got when an elderly family member passed away. We've taken out the back seat and it makes a great dog car. It's easy for them to hop in, etc. We were considering using that to drive to CA. First, gas will be slightly less and we don't want the wear and tear on our primary vehicles. However, we've been thinking that this could be a hard trip on the two dogs. Dexter is a year old and very used to spending time in the car. He's not a huge dog. Luke, however, is 5 and about 110 pounds and is ok in the car but certainly not as laid back as Dexter. I think it's not very roomy for him, but they do both fit. It's fine for trips of an hour or so, but I have to wonder about an 8-hour day in the car. With breaks, naturally. Seems a nightmare to find hotels and it probably won't be as fun as I first imagined -- driving cross country and stopping to see cool things. (I've done it before, but not with two GSDs.) So, I started wondering if maybe we should just all fly out. I hate the idea of the dogs in cargo. Having said that, I flew an English mastiff from CA to here several years ago, and Dexter is from Germany, so he flew here as a puppy. But still... Has anyone done the drive with dogs? Any tips? Warnings? And has anyone flown the dog(s) out? Tips about that? I'm almost thinking that the price would be a wash. I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks so much. I'm including a photo of them on a recent road trip that was about 4 hours round trip.
