Pet Friendly Truck Stops
Having a dog (or cat) travel with you can make life on the road better, but can have some challenges too. You and your pet need to get plenty of fresh air and exercise. It’s best when you can combine that with your fuel stops. Many truck stops and rest areas along America’s highways are more pet-friendly than ever before.
Truck stops are always updating their facilities, so it never hurts to call and check before you stop hoping for a pet area or products. The following are a few of the most pet friendly truck stops we’ve found for truckers and their pets:
TA and Petro Stopping Centers
Most TA and Petro Stopping Centers offer pet areas for dogs that need some exercise or a rest break. Waste bags and trash receptacles are also available to clean up after your pet. The travel stores also sell a variety of pet care products and food.
Iowa 80 (Walcott, IA)
Iowa 80 in Walcott, Iowa, does not currently allow pets inside the main buildings, however it does offer a self-served Dogomat Pet Wash for dogs that need a bath any time of day. It is located in front of the Truckomat Truck Wash.
Florida 595 Truck Stop (Davie, FL)
Florida 595 Truck Stop in Davie, Florida, has a dog park for your co-pilot. Like at any truck stop, just make sure their ‘business’ is cleaned up afterwards. According to Team Run Smart, they’re very pet friendly!
Sacramento 49er Travel Plaza (Sacramento, CA)
The Sacramento 49er Travel Plaza has a pet wash and walking areas so your best friend can get a bath and some exercise at the same stop!
