Everyone loves their family pets. However, family vacations are seldom fun with pets unless you plan ahead.
The reason that a family vacationing with their four legged friends can be problem-prone is because of the fact that most families don’t understand that even though their furry friend is part of their family, many people don’t find the family’s Doberman quite so cute. If you want to take the family mutt on the family trip, then call ahead to all of your anticipated stops and make sure accommodations are readily available.
Boarding your pet may be a smarter option when family vacation time rolls around. Pet kennels are often less than appealing to your pet but it can certainly save you unnecessary pet fees at the hotels which charge the fee for Fido. If you don’t know of a trusted kennel, Petsmart and other pet stores should be able to point you in the right directions.
Pets which are not going to be left home alone need to be well disciplined if they are going to travel with the family on vacation and that means that the yapping of the family pup can not be continual, otherwise the kind management of the hotel you’re staying at may ask you to leave. Vacationing families with pets naturally want their pets with them on vacation but be realistic if you know that you can’t travel with a dog with behavioral problems. Leave the pet in a kennel at home if the animal will cause difficult travel issues.
Choice Hotels, Microtel, Best Westerns as well as several extended stays such as the Homewood Suites and Marriott’s extended stay brands will often allow pets but again, they are counting on well behaved animals. When vacationing with your family engages pets traveling with you, play it smart and take only well behaved animals with you so that family vacationing is pleasurable!
