We will be taking our 6 month old yellow lab (Nash) on vacation with us next week to Lake George, NY! We are very excited to see how he does with the trails and water. Any tips or suggestions for traveling with him? The drive is about 2.5 hours and we have an SUV truck. Any ideas for when he needs to be in the room without us? He will be with us most of the day, just will have to leave him behind for dinner at night. The hotel is pet friendly. He is not in his crate anymore and hasn't been for about 1.5 months now. Any tips / advice will be appreciated!! Thank YOU!
