You wouldn’t go on a trip and not take toys for the kids would you? The dogs are like kids, take their favorite toy or toys with them.

Don’t forget, no chocolate for dogs. Watch where the kids lay down the Easter candy. The dog will pick it up and eat it whether its good for them or not.
Keep a checklist of what you keep in your pet “go bag” and update it with every use. Keep the checklist in the bag or better yet in your pets notebook so you can periodically make sure the bag is up to date and ready to go.
My “go bag” is yellow, that way I can find it easy if there is reduced light. I responded to a tornado one night and you can’t believe how dark it is when all of the power is out. It is hard to find your way in towns and cities that you think you know very well. You might need to get to the bag quickly for extra leashes, flashlights etc.
Make sure you carry any medications and medication records your pets might need in the “go bag”.
A good thing to keep in the “go bag” is a notebook with shot records, exams, photo’s, certifications, etc.
Every change in season brings new risks from natural disasters. With the coming of spring, we are entering tornado and flood season. Do you have a “go bag” prepared for your pets? It is a good idea to prepare a backpack with items you might need if you suddenly need to leave a secure environment. I recommend you take a spare leash and collar in that bag. I also think it is a good idea to keep a spare leash in your car. On at least three occasions last year, I needed the spare leash for loose dogs. More on what to carry in your “go bag” over the next few days, if you have suggestions, post them.
