I can’t take my dog on greyhound, Amtrak or Airlines. I don’t know how some of you travel with a medium/large dog. How do you do it? I am just trying to get somewhere new so I can start over. I would like some options, I don’t need any criticism or shitposts

Moderator edit: user wasn't satisfied with my responses so decided to respond with spamming the shit post rating and then calling me and matt butt buddies. as flattering as it is, me and matt arnt hiney honeys. - @SlankyLanky

well you might have a hard time doing it on a bike. it would actually be kinda cruel to do that unless you only wanna go very short distances at a time as far as bike touring goes. i had a pit and she sure wouldnt wanna run 15-20 mph over 80 miles a day. unless you wanna put yer pup in a trailer with all yer gear? but i personally wouldnt feel safe doing that if it was my dog.

I’m buying a bike trailer. Do you have any other input? Would it be less cruel to hop a train? I’m just weighing options.

looks like you answered yer own question. have you ever hopped freight before? have you thought about the possibility that that could be terribly harmful to yer pups ears?

Airlines requires that your dog fit under the seat. You are not being helpful

i think yer being kinda dense when it comes to helping yerself so let me just be blunt.

how do you travel on a bike with a dog? you get a trailer and panniers for yer gear and you ride. no shit you cant take yer dog on greyhound or amtrak but that wasnt part of yer question so i didnt think it was a issue. i thought you wanted to ride a bike. and for somebody whos been here less then 24 hours you seem to know a hell of alot about me.

I have a pitbull myself.

There are a few options, as far as I've experienced or observed.

From lowest cost to highest cost:

- * Hitchhike. With this method, you and your dog will generally walk at the same pace. Just be sure to train him/her to walk on the side of you AWAY from traffic.
Pros: Free
Cons: Slow; sometimes Uncomfortable and/or Frustrating

- * Use online rideshares. This is basically the same as hitchhiking, but sometimes a little more reliable, and arrangements can be made to pick you up somewhere in the shade, instead of waiting on a hot-ass on-ramp for hours or possibly days.
Pros: Free; Get a chance to communicate with driver; Less chance of getting a ride with a wacko
Cons: Sometimes difficult to find rides to specific destinations; Sometimes rides fall through and you're back at square one

- Bike with Bike trailer. This one was already mentioned earlier in this thread, but you have to make sure you get a trailer large enough for all your gear AND the Doggo to be comfortable. The larger the trailer, the more it will cost.
Pros: Faster than hitchhiking; Don't have to carry all your gear on your back; Good workout
Cons: Makes stealth camping almost impossible; equipment maintenance; Sore legs all the time

- * Rubbertramp. Get yourself a motor vehicle of some kind. I personally prefer vans.
Pros: Get where YOU want, WHEN you wanna get there, more or less; No need to carry any of your gear on your back; Guaranteed shelter from the elements (rain, snow, too hot, wind, etc.); Can pick up other hitchhikers or rideshares, and sometimes get kickdowns from that
Cons: Costs a lot of money, so unless you have an income of some kind, you'll be spending a lot of time flying signs, crafting/selling things (if that's your thing); Vehicle Maintenance, Including keeping up with current License, Registration, and Insurance; If it breaks down, you're stuck back at square one, unless a miracle occurs

- * Have Doggo Registered and Trained as a SERVICE ANIMAL. This will allow, by federal law, the dog to go anywhere YOU are allowed to go.
Pros: Have your dog with you all the time; even in food establishments
Cons: VERY EXPENSIVE. The training & certification costs roughly $5,000 - $8,000 per dog.

(the entries marked with a * are the ones that I have personally used.)
____________________________________________________________________________________

You might notice that I did NOT include hopping freight on this list. I will admit that this is a personal preference, as I believe that doggos do NOT belong on freight trains. The noise permanently damages their very sensitive hearing, the metal surfaces hurt and can injure their feet, and the process of getting on/off the train is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, not to mention that the dog will most likely be absolutely TERRIFIED the whole time you're on the train, which causes psychological damage, and can cause the dog to act out with fear responses at inappropriate times.

I used to hop trains, in fact it was my very favorite method of travel. However, when I adopted my dog, I quit hopping trains. I don't want to risk my life, or my dog's life or health unnecessarily.

Hope this info helps.

Thanks for your reply. Right now I’m only capable of options 1, 2, and 3. So far from rideshare, even though I’m offering $200 (I would pay more to the right person upon arrival), these people ask male or female... and then when I say male they ghost. Why ask I’m offering money??

I have no intentions of train hopping, with or without dog

Why do I need to stealth camp?
What do those cross country bicyclist do?
*sigh I’ll get a motel when I stop

A lot of people these days are afraid to pick up strange, male-bodied people that they don't know.

What might help weed some of those ones out is to let people know right away that you're a male traveling with a dog. Put that info right at the top of your "Seeking ride" ads.

That way, they won't bother to ask.

Also, maybe don't specifically SAY how much $$ you're offering, just say you'll "pay for gas & food" or something like that.

If someone straight-up offered me $200 for a ride, I would definitely be suspicious.

Pits are stereotyped. I think that's the word. Anyway yeah I had one for a while and boy she cost me a lot. Nobody wanted anything to do with me after they met her. She was a bit mouthy to say the least. I hope it goes well with you, lots of people who love the breed as well. Just be honest when posting for timeshare don't let it be a secret it's a pit or you'll just get let down, or maybe you'll find that a lot of ppl will accept it. I hope yours isn't as temperamental as my baby was. Whoo boy!
