Pet Safety Tips for Memorial Day Weekend Travel

Friday, May 20, 2016

 

Memorial Day Weekend is nearly hear and travel plans are being made and you may be wondering what to do with pets while you are away or maybe you are bringing them with you.

With that in mind, Camp Bow Wow, a fast growing pet care franchise, has offered the following tips. 

Pet Safety Tips

  • Flying with your pet: If you are going to take your pet on an airplane, it is important to determine whether your pet will need a crate or a carrier. Larger dogs will fly in a crate in the cargo, and smaller dogs that fit into a carrier can fly with you in the cabin. Make sure you find out the requirements for your dog prior to booking your flight. 
  • Familiarize your pet with its crate or carrier: Pets like familiarity. If you plan on keeping your pet inside a carrier or crate while traveling, make purchases at least a month before travel to allow your pet ample time to get comfortable with the new environment. Place him or her in the carrier and provide treats. Gradually lengthen the time your pet is in the crate or carrier until your pet seems at ease in its new space.
  • Car Safety: It is important that we always think about the dog's safety while in your car. If you want it to sit on the seat, get your pup a dog seatbelt. It allows your dog to move around, but provides restraint in the case of an accident. If you have an SUV, you can buy a gate that keeps it from jumping from the back to the front.
  • Feed your pet no less than five or six hours before traveling: It is very easy for your dog or cat to become sick during travel. Providing time for food to digest lessens the chances of your pet becoming ill.
  • Make your pet feel at home: Use familiar food, bowls, blankets, toys and other items from your home to create a sense of comfort for your pet while on vacation.
  • Find a pet-friendly hotel:  And if you've got plans during the day, since most pet-friendly hotels will not allow pets to be left in the room alone, consider taking your dog to a nearby doggie day care facility.

Austin is a feisty 6-year-old, 25 pound terrier mix who love to snuggle. He likes to play ball and take apart stuffed animals. He is house-trained, crate-trained, polite on the leash, and knows how to sit. He gets along with non-reactive dogs and cats, but because he is very cautious about how he is touched, he is not a good fit for households with children. Austin will be a loyal, loving companion for someone who can give him some training and structure.
