Find the most pet-friendly hotels
When it comes to hotels, they are always pet friendly. There are plenty of options, but if you’re looking for a no-fail option, try W Hotels. They are all pet friendly and truly pet focused. You will be greeted by your pet’s name upon arrival. When you arrive you will find a bowl and a bed in your room. We also have an extensive list of W hotels, so you and your fur baby can feel at home whenever you’re away from home.
Not many pet-friendly hotels allow you to bring fur babies without paying a pet fee. A standard rate per day or for the entire stay is normal. Some are more reasonable than others, so do your research.
Some cities in the world are more pet friendly than others. Paris, Seattle, and Rome rank high as the most pet-friendly countries. There’s more than just pet-friendly hotels here. Your pet will receive royal treatment with bowls, beds, leashes and more.
Plan pet-friendly activities
Dog walks and day spas might interest your pup. Hikes, dog parks, beach days, and even restaurants with menus just for your furry buddy can be added to your list of activities. increase. Make sure some of the activities you plan include or focus on your puppy.
Prepare a diaper bag for your dog
A portable bowl, extra food, water and blankets are the bare minimum. A kennel, treats, toys, and clothes complete your puppy’s diaper bag.
bring a recording
Whenever you take your dog on vacation, be sure to take your puppy shot record with you. Just in case you have a pet groomer you absolutely must use, or in case of an emergency. Recording shots is always useful.
going abroad? do this!
Since it’s a paperwork topic, let’s talk about taking your pet abroad, or somewhere other than your home country. It looks like a complicated process, but generally it’s not.
Most of the vaccinations your pet already has are sufficient for them to enter the country. Then, take your pet to a veterinarian who can check your pet’s health a few days before your trip.
That’s generally it. Bring your pet through customs and have it checked into the country with you. Easy!
Microchip or tracker?
Microchip or tracker? Well both! they do two different things. A microchip tells other people information about you, the owner. The other actually tracks the pet’s location and is attached to the collar.
provide water frequently
For many people, going on vacation means it’s time to get active. Be more active than usual. Provide your puppy with water frequently. They are getting more active too!
give the dog time to rest
Feel free to plan pet-free activities. Check with your hotel about bringing your dog to a daycare or leaving your dog unattended. Traveling for the first time and entering a new environment can be taxing on your puppy. Additionally, the dog is known to sleep up to 18 hours in her day. Have a good time and let your puppy have it too… in bed!
Shoot straight on your flight to your destination. Adding layovers can disrupt your pet’s normal routine and cause stress. Plus, it’s less likely that your dog will be too hot or too cold when traveling through the cargo hold of an airplane.
Tell the airline you are bringing your dog
After booking, call the airline and let them know you’re bringing your pet on board. Each airline has different rules on how it works, so be sure to check when traveling with a new airline. Carriers and fees usually apply. Small pets travel in the cabin and large pets travel in the cargo hold. If you are in trouble, you can do it at check-in, but I don’t recommend it. The staff are much more helpful if you know in advance.
plan a bathroom break
Plan your bathroom breaks on the way to your destination. Most airport terminals have pet relief areas. A rest stop when taking a road trip is great.
Consider skipping meals on the day of your trip
Consider skipping Fido’s meal on the day of travel. Veterinarians recommend this technique because pets can also be anxious before (and during) travel, which can cause an upset stomach.
leave your buddy at home
Sometimes you need to leave your fur companion alone at home. After her 9 years of traveling with a dog, the author recently decided to leave her behind for her next trip. Consider your dog’s age and health and travel needs. Even the countries you visit may not accept dogs. Or you want to go on a water-centric vacation but your pup is afraid of water.
