There’s a whole world out there to explore. Why not bring along a
travel companion who won’t ask, “Are we
there yet?” every five minutes?
Before you run out to get your favorite dog breed and hit the open road, there are a few things you’ll need to consider, like the breed’s noisiness, trainability and friendliness — among other things. You don’t want to realize halfway through your trip to the lake that your loud, water-averse canine should’ve been left at home with a sitter or taken to a boarding facility.
Of course, breeding isn’t everything. Lots of other factors, including training and socialization can affect how travel-worthy your dog might be. Curious? Check out our photo gallery to find some of the dogs that can be good matches for people who like to travel.

If You Love the Water, Consider These Dogs

Look for Quiet Dog Breeds; Avoid Noisy Dog Breeds
