Pets are indisputably part of the family and just as human beings they also need time to relax, vacations and to get some fresh air, they also love to have trips and explore new places, we know that you would love to enjoy your holidays with your best friend, this is why we give you four tips that you should consider before deciding to take your pet on a trip.
The first is when choosing the destination you must take into consideration if you go to a place where you do not have relatives or a person who can take care of your dog or you find yourself in a situation where you can’t be together, things could get a bit complicated, there are places where there are hotels for dogs or nurseries so before deciding your destination you could consider one of these options.
Remember that there are also beaches, closed places and parks that do not allow pet access, so perhaps the trip with your best friend should be planned especially to enjoy with him.
Once you decide the place to travel when looking for accommodation, you must make sure that they are pet friendly, in addition to this you knowing your best friends behavior you must think further on what actions or events could represent an inconvenience according to his personality or needs, if you couldn’t find a pet friendly hotel you can look for some private accommodation, B&B or rental house.
The means of transport you choose will be one of the most important points since you must prepare very well for the physical and physiological needs of your pet, in addition to knowing him/her very well and if the trip is very long make sure that it is not the first time that your pet travels, so that you avoid stress for him/her and that so they can meet the requirements and documentation if you decide to travel by plane or other means of public transportation.
If he/she must travel in a cage it is important for them to get used to it a few days in advance; this will make them much less likely to be nervous while traveling. You should also take care of their diet to avoid an upset stomach during the travel.
