7 Must Haves When Traveling With Your Dog

1.  Kennel, bag carrier or crate

You can choose any of these options, depending on the way you plan to travel (car, airplane, etc.). You can find a variety of them in many pet stores. This way your dog will be safe and controlled.

2.  A pet-friendly hotel

There are many hotels in the world that allow pets in your room. You can book for accommodation at websites like Booking.  Just make sure you use a “pet-friendly” filter when searching. You should check for restrictions or fees the hotel may require.

Not sure which hotels offer the most pet-friendly accommodations? Check out the Hyatt, know for having plenty of pet-friendly hotels, and enjoy a doggy pillow, along with three complimentary toys, bowls, and a jar of yummy treats. Not to mention, some of the Hyatt’s pet-friendly hotels donate your entire pet fee to local animal shelters, which is something all pet owners can appreciate.

3.  Pet-friendly transportation service

If you’re flying or you didn’t bring your own car and plan to use a private transportation service that allows pets on board, ask if they charge extra for your pet. This is a safe and comfortable way to move around with your dog.

4.  Visit your dog’s vet before traveling

Have your veterinarian check your dog before the trip and ask for recommendations and preventive medications you should consider. A health certificate is often required while traveling.
