If you’re planning a trip with your pet, you’re probably looking for all the elements that make it easy and enjoyable. Including pet friendly hotel chains, right?
Finding the right accommodations is indeed important. Molly and Pat did their homework in that department early. They researched the city they were traveling to on the Internet, and talked with concierges at four different hotel chains in their search to fine the best arrangement for their pet.
Now there are other things to consider. Like what airline to travel on, what advance preparations to make, and how to prepare their dog for the flight.
When Pat started pinning down all the things they needed to think about, he realized it would help to have a chart. So we prepared this pet friendly travel checklist for them. I imagine you might find these tips for pet friendly vacations useful, too.
While this chart doesn’t tell you every little thing you need to do, it will serve to remind you of some of the things you might not think of otherwise – once you’ve done the obvious things, like researching all the pet friendly hotel chains and making your lodging reservations.
More and more these days, pet friendly travel is becoming the norm. That’s as it should be, don’t you agree?
Traveling with your pet will give you a whole new raft of stories to tell. Once you’re at your destination, pet friendly hotel chains, parks, beaches and restaurants can be a real doggie adventure. Take lots of photos! And then, become a Pet Writes member and send us one of your favorites to publish on our Pet Pictures page!
