Traveling with your Pets
As school ends, and summer approaches many are beginning to pull together their travel plans! This time why not include your family pet?
It may be the first time you’ll be traveling with your pet, and you might wonder where to begin. You’ll find relief in knowing that there are websites that can help. At Pet Hotels of America you can reserve rooms at any of its listed 25,000 pet-friendly hotels - many of which love your furry friend and offer free perks for pets like gift baskets filled with treats, or their own special bed. The website also offers listings for pet-friendly beaches, parks, restaurants, shopping and animals events in every U.S. city.
To prepare for your venture, stock your doggy's overnight bag with supplies. Try Traveling Pet Supplies, with more than 2,600 items for pets on the go. You will even find the John Paul Pet Waterless Shampoo so when Sparky needs a good cleaning after a day at the park, it doesn’t require a trip to the groomer.
The key to traveling with pets is to spend a little extra time preparing. Bring vaccination papers, ID tags, photos of your pet just in case you get separated, portable water and feeding bowls and restraints to keep your pet safe in the car. Also, remember, most hotels won’t let you leave your pet alone unless they are in a crate. There are many that fold for easy traveling. Check out Pet Airways for pet travel arrangements, and more travel tips.
Your first trip with your pet is always the hardest. But really, you’ll find America has become amazingly pet friendly
