If you haven't considered traveling with your dog before, now is a great time to get in on all of the deals offered from hotels wanting your business. From the business traveler to the family on a one-week vacation, there are great deals to be found on dogs travel accommodations. Many retailers have also realized that there are many people who treat their dog like one of the family and are designing great travel accessories for globe trotting pets.
Staying at a hotel with your pampered dog has never been easier or friendlier. Hotels offer great amenities to travelers with well-behaved dogs. Many hotels greet their dog guests with goodie bags that can include gift certificates for a dog sitter on the premises, dog toys and dog treats. Menus at upscale lodgings include chicken or lamb with rice dishes, gourmet dog cookies and specialty flavored doggie bones. Vegetarian or otherwise health conscious dogs can also have meals created especially for them. Often pets can expect to have their own dog bed if they haven't brought their own and occasionally hotels even have special DVDs or videos for your pet pal. Deals on accommodations vary by location and establishment but generally you can expect accommodations for your pet with inexpensive or no deposit fees.
Travelers who stay in hotels with their pets should know that while pets are welcomed owners are liable for any damage or injury to other patrons caused by their dog. Expect to lose your deposit should your dog chew up the leg of a chair or eat their way through a mattress. Hotels usually require you to provide proof of up to date shot records and a certificate from your veterinarian stating your dog is flea free and on a parasite treatment program at check-in. Dogs travel frequently with this information from your vet, especially if they are traveling internationally.
Dogs travel in style with the new stylish dog carriers and specialty collars. If you have a small dog that is quiet they can travel with you on most airlines under your seat. It is easy to find a nice mesh travel bag for your pooch that meets airline specifications for fewer than eighty dollars. These cute and comfortable bags have removable washable liners so that your pet is comfortable and warm. Don't forget designer doggie food and water bowls so your pet is as well fed and hydrated as you are on your trip. Dogs travelling in the cargo compartment will also benefit from specialty dog collars that give all of their information should they get separated from you when changing flights. Specialty dog carriers include water holders and food bowls that pet flight attendants can use to make sure your dog is well cared for.
A dog traveling in style shouldn't be without a stylish collar and leash. Many pet retailers both online and locally offer designer collars that will make your pet look anything but ordinary. Designers offer beautiful leather collars that are studded with Swarovski crystals, rhinestones or even diamonds can be purchased for your dog. After you arrive at your destination you can dress your dog up in holiday or seasonal collars that feature feathers, bells, beads and chiffon material.
Dogs travel well in cars, in the air and on cruises if their owners plan for their comfort and special needs before heading out on a journey. Most people plan a trip with all of the bells and whistles so that they create a travel adventure to remember. Do the same for your pet and you'll enjoy a vacation that will be cherished for years to come.
