Pet owners are usually quite anxious when going on vacation without their pets. The biggest question faced is whether your pet will be taken care of well. Today, many hotels provide accommodation for pets so that owners can enjoy some pet-friendly travel. Hotels from economy and mid-range classes to luxury class accept pets with open arms.
You must keep a checklist of your pet requirements while traveling by noting down items, such as:
- Your pet’s favorite comfort blanket with the smell of home in it.
- Travel bowls with their usual food and water so that different tasting water and food does not put them off.
- The leash he/she is used to walking in.
- His/her favorite toy to chew on in times of travel stress
- Potty bags
- Airline approved pet carrier in which your pet has already slept in.
