Travelling with your Iggy

THIS IS IMPORTANT ALWAYS CHECK THAT YOUR IGGY HAS NOT JUMPED INTO THE CAR BEFORE YOU SHUT THE DOOR.

Italian greyhounds for the most part LOVE to travel in the car. In fact they will often jump into the car with you to go for a ride without you (or your visitors) knowing they are there!

We have had people get down the road before turning back to return a naughty hitchhiker!

Before you go anywhere, you'll need some equipment to ensure maximum safety for your friend. Safety belts are essential for people, so why not for dogs as well? It's important your dog is secure in the car - as tempting as it is to drive with your puppy in your lap, any sudden stops could mean serious injury to your pet.

We always travel with Italian Greyhounds in their crate with the seat belt looped over holding the crate secure.

This next part may seem obvious but must be stated:

Never leave your dog in the car - especially on a warm or hot day. Dog theft from cars in not unknown, but the greater risk is heatstroke (or 'heat stress'). Heatstroke is life threatening for your pet. With comparatively few sweat glands, dogs and puppies can easily overheat in a car. While it may be pleasantly warm outside, the temperature inside the car can be significantly higher.

If you're on a long journey and need to stop, take your dog to a shady spot. Make sure that your iggie has a secure collar on and a good lead. If a pup is frightened it may slip out of a cat collar with elastic and a frightened puppy is not easy to catch for strangers.
