Most people travel to their celebration and usually take their family with them. There are some that can only live without their pets. If you want to travel with your pet, you have to plan to make travel comfortable and convenient for both you and your pet.
· Traveling by car
If you want to travel on a vacation on a holiday, make sure you do not allow pets to relax inside. Pets can get a safety strap that can be attached to the car's seat belt system. Or just place your pet in a cage. The pet carrier is also a good idea, but it may also be more expensive. Always place your pet in the back seat.
· Traveling by Air
When flying to the destination, the pet carrier is required to comply with the airlines' rules. Check the size of the pet carrier for airlines in order to buy the right size. The pet can travel by air in the cabin if it does not exceed 22 pounds, 18 inches long and 11 inches tall.
For international travel, you need some documents for your pet before you take it with you. It would be best to have a license for at least 6 weeks. Do not travel with your pet unless you check and vaccinate your vet. He always carries the current health certificate for pet animals and records of vaccinations.
· Pet Food
Take lots of pet food; you can never be sure that your pet's favorite brand of pet food will be available at your destination, so you better be confident.
· Feeding Instructions
If you are flying, feed the pet with light snacks 5-6 hours before departure. Your pet does not give any fluids 2 hours before departure. If you are driving near the car, try not to move your pet while moving.
· Add Identification Labels
Whether it's home or abroad, it's best to attach the tag label to your favorites. The identification label must include your home address and phone number, and the address and telephone number of the destination.
Before you leave, it is important to check if your pet is pet friendly at your destination. If you visit relatives, you have to tell them to take your pet. If you are staying in a hotel, check the rules and regulations regarding accommodation for pets.
Also make sure your pet is ready to travel. Animals can be more tedious than children in long journeys. If your pet has never been anywhere else than home, you can start to travel when you take it to the supermarket, the park or the mall.
Finally, try to be as pensive as you can. You must understand that you will not deal with your pet alone; you should also deal with other people's reaction to your pet.
