Pet Friendly Stays

Traveling With Pets.

The hardest part of traveling with pets is trying to find hotels that are pet friendly. Before leaving it is a good idea to check to make sure the hotel accepts pets. It’s also a good idea to know where the veterinary clinics are in the vacation spots that you are planning to visit. Sometimes pets can get scared and get away sometimes. This is why it is important to keep your pet on a leash when you are outside your car or hotel. This will minimize headaches. It is a good idea to have the tags and all vaccinations taken care of before you travel. Planning ahead is a good idea when using an airline, train, or boat to ensure that the pet friendly accommodations and regulations are clear so you don’t encounter any problems when arriving for departure. Making sure that you are there ahead of time will allow you to ensure that everything is taken care of properly making sure that all requirements are met for pet travel.

Pet Carriers and Leashes

Sometimes a pet may not travel well. A pet carrier may be an alternative or necessary means for housing your pet especially in a vehicle or transport. A restless pet may jump around and become a great distraction to the driver / handler. The leash is a must for dogs that like to bolt. There's nothing more tiring than trying to catch a dog that got away in an unfamiliar surrounding.

Visit the Vet

 It's a good idea to make sure the pet has all its vaccination shots prior to taking any vacation with your pets. Keep in mind that you should also bring along the animals medical report that your vet provides in case any authority questions if your pet had its shots. Hotels and pet friendly stays.
