Default Going on a road trip to Vancouver-advice, tips NEEDED!!

So the last weekend in July Tyler, myself, Teagan and pup pup will be heading out to Vancouver for two weddings. One on the last weekend of July and the first weekend in August. So we will be there for over a week. We have decided to take both dogs. I just don't feel comfortable leaving them both in a kennel or a strangers home for over a week. And it will end up costing us a small fortune, Plus I though it will be a good experience for pup pup. And Teagan will just love the adventure.

Now, I am slightly concerned about him not having all his boosters he will have his 8 week and that is about it, unless I try and get him into a vet in Vancouver, or I can get the vet to give him his next booster right before we leave. but I kinnda decided that him experiencing the busy city life, ferry rides and the traveling is going to be worth it. Issue with living in a more rural area its hard to experience that sorta thing. So I am jumping on the opportunity to take him. Plus we will be staying away from dark parks and heavy dog areas.

We will be mostly camping, Tyler and I will be staying in a hotel for the weddings, but I found a dog sitter that is going to take them during that time.

Now, I need tips. As I have never taken a puppy on a road trip. And I am stressing out! The trip is about 13 hours give or take to get there. What should I be bringing with me? What would you do regarding vaccinations? How often would you stop for pee breaks? And any one wanna try and meet up that live in Vancouver or Victoria area?

Thanks friends
