The number one thing you have to remember is that leaving your Yorkie puppy in the car alone for any amount of time is a big "No! No!". The temperature can change very quickly and your Yorkie puppy can suffer from it. Heat stroke is something many take for granted but puppies and dogs have suffered from it before.
Their temperature raises very high and sometimes end up in a severe condition. Many Yorkie's love to travel but some do get a little anxious at times. The barking, whining and circling can also sometimes cause fevers.
When traveling with your Yorkie puppy there are a few items to consider purchasing. Window guards allow the window to be down several inches while still protecting your Yorkie from escaping. This is a must if you plan to be on vacation with your pet. Ventilation is the key!
If your Yorkie will be traveling in the back seat you might want to invest in a harness that clips into the seat belt clip. This will keep him properly tethered in case of accidents and keep him from lunging out the door before you are ready for him to do so. When you make stops at the gas station or rest areas make sure you take your Yorkie puppy out for a walk and some air as well. When you are packing your cooler make sure you throw in your Yorkie bottles of water as well and keep them cool.
Yorkie's can also get car sick. There are medications available to avoid car sickness for puppies. Your veterinarian would be the best source for this. Just in case your Yorkie decides to go with car sickness, always have a rubber matt or comforter to lay on for less of a mess. You can always purchase a dog crate from your local pet market suitable for your Yorkie puppy and size. Make sure you bring toys along so that you puppy can keep himself/herself company while you drive.
Don't hesitate to take your Yorkie with you. These are all just warning signs while travelling with your puppy. Once you are prepared and head off its easy and worthwhile once you arrive. Both you and your Yorkie puppy will very much enjoy yourselves.
