Traveling w/ Dogs

My friend was recently telling me about how her dog gets so nervous traveling in the car that it's literally a struggle to get him in.  (And he's a big dog.)  She asked me how I get Jasmine so comfortable.  Well, the answer to that is easy.  I'm pretty sure the only time my friend's dog gets to leave the house is to go to the vet.   Where as Jasmine has been riding in the car with me ever since she was a puppy.  She comes with me to visit my family, we go to agility class, we go to Petsmart, we go to the dog park.  Practically everywhere we go is a fun adventure.  (Plus lately, we've been traveling for auditions.)  So Jaz is a very seasoned traveler.  She just chills out anytime we're in the car. 

 This is from our most recent trip to LA for the call-backs.  Sometims she's watching out the window, but she was so tired from performing that she slept practically the whole ride home.

So I that's my opinion why Jaz loves road trips.  9 times out of 10 we end up somewhere fun.  (and then there's the slight chance we may end up at the vet or the groomer's.)  But for the most part it's fun stuff.  ;)

I've been noticing more and more Subaru's on the road lately.  (Their commercials are the ones with the cool dogs in it- like this one:)   http://bit.ly/WW7C2Y
They even designed an app on Facebook where you can make a driver's license for your dog!! 

 Right now, I have a little car.  But it's almost 15 years old.  The poor car is about ready to retire.  So I have been looking around at different options.  As silly as this may sound to some of you, one of the factors I'm considering in my next car purchase is if it will hold all of Jasmine's stuff!!!  She has SO MANY props and things I smash into my car when ever we are performing.  That it would be nice to have something a little more roomy!

I found out Subaru's having a contest- thru Rafflecopter (to win a visa gift card)

a Rafflecopter giveaway
But you have to hurry- it ends tonight!

Just thought I'd share that!!  Good luck!  I'll be sure to keep you posted about Jasmine's next adventure!

By the way, this post is a sponsored by Subaru. We're compensated for helping spread the word about the "Dog Tested, Dog Approved" Campaign. I am very picky/ selective on who I choose to do sponsored posts for. So I only do it for companies that I agree with and/or support. (In the case of a dog product, I'll only do sponsored posts for products that I would use or give to Jasmine myself.) But in this case, it's a car. Jaz likes car rides. :) So I figured she'd approve of this one. ;)
