More and more pets seem to be mobile these days; mobile meaning that they travel as frequently as their human companions. So if you have a pet Spinone Italiano, you need not worry about a lot of pet traveling problems. You may encounter a certain glitch or two during the journey, but nothing so massive that you will try to put off your next few rides with your pet.
Traveling with a pet always takes a bit of preparation. Think of it as traveling with a very young child. You need to take some necessary precautions, make special arrangements and pack a goody bag when you travel with a young child. The same goes for your Spinone Italiano pet.
Short distance traveling (say 15 to 20 minute rides) are of course far easier to accommodate. If you are traveling in a vehicle, make sure your Spinone Italiano is in a comfortable place, like the back seat of the car, or on a hammock at the back of the truck. Although it is common practice to let dogs sit in the front passenger seat, this is actually dangerous to both pet and driver. You may have no problems though when it comes to your pet Spinone Italiano. This dog is very passive, and prefers to lounge on the seat rather than jump about in a distracting manner. Properly trained, you can even command your Spinone Italiano to sit tight until the end of the ride.
One other thing to remember about the Spinone Italiano is this: it is a biddable creature, and you will have no problems when it comes to its traveling etiquette. But the dog does slobber a lot. So unless you want to deal with doggy drool at the end of the ride, it may be best to put in a piece of doggy cloth underneath your pet, and make sure your Spinone Italiano actually stays there.
If you are traveling by bus or other modes of public transport, make sure that your Spinone Italiano has at least some form of obedience training. Make sure that it understands the words sit and stay. Make sure that when you command it to sit, it actually remains seated all throughout the ride. This breed of dog is rather friendly to anything of the living persuasion: whether those persuasions are humans, other dogs and or other animals. It can be easily enticed to approach by strangers or invited to play by other animals. This may be cute, but may also be a bit of a problem because of the limited space of the public transport vehicle.
Another thing to consider is the Spinone Italiano hair or fur shedding. This breed of dog is not hypoallergenic and may cause other people to develop nasty reactions to it. By minimizing your Spinone Italiano's movements, you also minimize the shedding.
If your dog hasn't undergone obedience training yet, you have to use a doggy carriage for transport. Although this confines your pet for a considerable time, it is the safest possible kind of transport wherein you can relax and enjoy the trip a little more.
