Trucking Pets: One of the Best Ways to Combat Loneliness on the Road

Trucking pets are a great way to take some of the sting out of being away from home for long periods of time.  

When living on the road, a furry buddy can be a wonderful companion! Truckers who travel with a pet, most commonly take along cats or dogs, but some have been known to take along creepy reptiles or other strange mammals!

Others believe that the best trucking pets, are animals that are a bit more mature, at least a few years old.

The trucker needs to plan how to handle their pet on a road trip. Sometimes a few test runs, on shorter trips, might be a good idea, to see how your furry friend adapts to being a new trucker!
