Pet Friendly Hotels: Accommodating Fido In style
With a host of pet-friendly hotels across the U.S. , there’s no longer any reason to stress about leaving Fido in a kennel while the rest of the family sets off on vacation.
The first step is to conduct a thorough search for pet-friendly lodging in your destination city. While all continental states possess a myriad of pet motels, online searches revealed the following states and cities proved to be particularly welcoming to your four-legged family members: Florida (Jacksonville, Orlando, and Key West), California (San Diego and San Francisco), Texas, Las Vegas, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
Reserve your accommodations in advance and check with the motel to find out if there are any additional fees or restrictions. Make sure to get a copy of your pet’s vaccinations and any medications, in addition to having them current on all vaccinations. It’s a good idea to have a list of emergency vets’ names in your destination area.
When traveling by air, check with the airline for a list of their requirements for transporting animals. Certain airlines will not carry Brach cephalic (pug-nosed) breeds of dogs, which are more susceptible to oxygen deprivation and heat stroke. Some cats, such as Persians, can be similarly affected. It’s not wise to travel with pets in unusually hot or cold temperatures, as the cargo holding areas will reflect the temperatures. In some cases, it might be wise to speak with your vet about providing your pet with a tranquilizer during the trip.
Many buses and trains allow pets to travel free- check in advance. Schedule your trip at less-crowded times to ease your pet’s nervousness.
Traveling With Your Pets
If traveling by car, it’s imperative that animals be contained. Any sudden stops can cause injury if a pet is loose or they can escape out of the door when taking breaks. Your local pet store should carry pet harnesses or crates for traveling. If your furry friend gets sick or anxious while riding in a car, ask your vet for the necessary medication. And, of course, never leave a pet in a hot car!
Common courtesy is a must when staying at pet-friendly hotels, motels or resorts. Take dogs out for frequent bathroom breaks to insure no accidents in the room, pick up after your dog, don’t leave pets unattended for long periods of time…just remember, you are all guests!
