What type of transport to choose?

The best mode of transport for transporting a large dog is your personal car. Firstly, you can in advance the pet to your car and on the trip, he will feel calm. Secondly, in your car there will be only your company, and the dog will not cause trouble to strangers.

The second most convenient option is a train. In the train, the dog can be transported in a special vestibule or in a separate compartment. Traveling in the compartment is much more pleasant. For most dogs, transportation in the vestibule can become a huge stress: inappropriate temperature, strangers, obsessive smells, loud noise. But the main thing is that next to the dog there will be no beloved owner, who can console and support.

Much more comfortable – to redeem all the compartment. You can be in it together with a dog or take friends and family members with you who are not against the neighborhood with the four-legged. It is convenient in the compartment with the dog: it will be able to stretch on the floor, she will not interfere with other passengers and she will be calm next to the owner.

Seeing a huge four-legged passenger, the driver will most likely refuse your trip – and will be right. The dog can interfere with the driver, stain the car and leave allergens behind, which can cause the reaction of the next passengers. In addition, the driver can, in principle, be afraid of dogs – and no one will like such a trip.
