Pet Friendly Travel



It’s often said that a pet isn’t just an animal, but a member of the family. Both anecdotal and scientific evidence suggests that pets help their owners enjoy longer, healthier, happier lives. Of course, with the wonderful rewards of pet ownership comes great responsibility. The Internet is a useful source of advice and assistance to keep coats glistening and tails wagging—if you know where to look. We’ve herded some of the Web’s best pet-care resources into this guide so you can spend less time researching and more time with your animal.

Pet Friendly Travel

Some people find it so painful to be separated from their pets that they have to vacation as a complete family. Lucky for them, there are many pet-friendly lodgings and airlines that allow animals. If you would rather not be limited in your choice of hotel and destination by your pet’s needs, and if you can face being separated for a while, online resources can help you find a trustworthy temporary residence for your pet.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • If your animal is going on a plane, check the airline’s Web site or contact the airline directly to check its requirements. Pet travel policies differ between airlines, and regulations often change. Make sure you are clear on the rules before you bring your pet to the airport.
  • Only use a kennel or day-care center that has been recommended by somebody you trust. The American Boarding Kennels Association can be of some help, but information from your local vet will probably be more extensive and reliable when it comes to local services.
  • If you need to purchase a pet carrier or crate, consult the “Online Pet Supplies” section of this guide.
