Travel Tips for Pets


It is no shock for me to say that the economy isn’t as good as it used to be. Money is tight and instead of taking vacations, people are starting to take “staycations”.

A staycation (or stay-cation, or stacation) is a period of time in which an individual or family stays at home and relaxes at home or takes day trips from their home to area attractions… the thing is, how to do this while taking care of your pets at home?

The AKC has created a wonderful Pet Travel Tips and Hints Brochure to help pet owners travel with their furry companions – even when it is just the next state over. It includes dog water safety, shopping with pets, traveling by plane or car and even lodging tips.

If you plan on traveling this year, it is definitely a handy guide to keep on hand whether you are a seasoned travel or planning your first road trip.
