Amy and Rod Burkert of GoPetFriendly.com have been on the road full-time for more than six years, logging in more than 80,000 miles crisscrossing the country with their two animal companions: 9-year-old German shepherd, Buster, and 13-year-old Shar-Pei, Ty.
I first crossed paths with Amy and Rob about four years ago when they were camping at the iconic Pecan Grove RV Park in downtown Austin, Tex., (where I was catching up with longtime gal-pal and solo RVer Malia Lane).
Since then, Amy has been an expert resource every time I’ve written an article on traveling with pets. The other day I spotted an post they wrote on Winnebagolife.com about the “10 Must-Haves for RVing with Pets.” (click here.) It is an informative read and has several great pictures of Ty and Buster.
“Expert Tip: Keep a small box of dehydrated food, water, and collapsible bowls in your car so you can feed your pet on the go. Fantastic day trips shouldn’t have to be cut short to make it home for dinner!”
