Wherever you are heading to, make sure your pug travels in proper crates or pet carriers, which not only provides them comfort but highly ensures their safety and security in parallel.

During your travel via air, pet carriers act as a mandatory asset to carry/transport your pets to the destination.

Modern kennels and crates now offer smooth travel experiences for all types and sizes of tamed animals through which they can see out at all the angles, are spacious enough to move in and around, and are relaxing enough to make them feel cozy and safe. (Some even provide bedding for them at additional costs.)

They are portable, pet-friendly, smooth in handling, and most importantly safe and secure for your furry companion.

Also, if you think that you will provide well water or water from any stream or pond, then also it might be a risky choice because your pug may experience tummy-issues after drinking such water.

So, to make sure that you and your pug travel happy and safe, do not forget to carry a few water bottles with you accompanied by a water dish. (Make sure you stop in between for pug’s refreshment while traveling via road or make your pet feel light before onboarding a flight.)

Additionally, keep some snacks besides to feed your adorable pugs in order to maintain their diet schedule even on trips.

Carrying snackies and regular food for your pug will help in keeping him active, and you may also bribe them if needed to calm down or do as you intend. You know dogs are analogous to kids, and a pug can relate it closely.

Don't feel surprised if you see it eating a little less on the travel tips as usually, dogs show a transition in their eating patterns and behavior than the usual times. This might happen because your pug might get a little stressed and feel a bit abnormal and, thus, act differently.
