Abby is just 'off her game', she doesn't handle change well.
For example: she will doze off but if I change speed or even change lanes she
is up and checking on things.
She gave into the canned food ... eventually.
She has no problem eating anything that is not dog food.
She is just being stubborn.
Thanks to everyone for your help!

Good thinking on the canned food. If they don't eat for long enough, that presents it's own problems sometimes. Hope your travels go well!

Thank you, she will eat some canned dog food if it is cheap and smelly enough.
She is fine and travelling well; calmed way down after the first day.
We noticed that all through Florida we never saw a dog except for the
occasional traveler.

We are bringing along Benadryl just in case. Looked up the dosage, etc.
Most motels are pet friendly and easy to find on the web.
We expect to stop every 2-3 hours for water, food, etc.
Any tips or caveats are greatly welcomed.
thanks


I traveled with 3 dogs all the way from NY to Texas.

They always had water in their crates, I stopped every four-six hours to let them stretch and potty. I did keep their normal feeding routine.
I had a container with their food and always two or three gallon jugs of water in the car.

Every once in a while I did have problems to find a pet friendly motel but I never had to search long.

My dogs are seasoned travelers though. From flying to long distance trips, they know it all.
