Older Dogs are Great For Truck Drivers

Many trucking companies allow their drivers to take their dogs along with them to keep them company while they’re on the road. Dogs love cars and make great companions to truck drivers as well. Many small breeds like pugs and Pomeranians  are an excellent choice for a truck drivers. Older dogs also make great companions on the road.

Old dogs can learn new tricks! When picking a trucker dog, older dogs are a great choice. You’ll never have to worry about puppy energy and many are already housebroken, so there’s no need to stop as frequently to avoid any accidents. Since older dogs are more complacent, they won’t require a lot of exercise, but will always be up to go for a walk at rest stops. Plus, older shelter dogs would love to be adopted to hit the road with you!

Once you pick the perfect breed, make sure you take the time to get your dog familiarized with your truck and get used to the noises that come with life on the road. After a few drives, your dog will be well adapted to the trucking lifestyle, and you’ll be happy to have a loyal driving buddy.
