Tips for Traveling With Your Pet

During our first summer in Arizona, we arranged to be someplace else – namely Colorado – for 7 weeks out of the four months that it is unpleasantly HOT here in the valley of the sun.  This time it was just the two of us.  Being “pet-less” for the first time in decades we didn’t have to plan for having a dog or cat along for the journey.  But when our last dog, our Irish setter Coral was alive, we planned most vacation trips around her.  She was a great traveler, although she didn’t start out that way.  The first 6 months or so of her life she routinely became car sick, and it got to the point she didn’t even want to get in the car.  How we overcame that is a topic for another time.

But we’ve learned a lot about traveling with pets over the years, including a cross country move with three dogs and three cats in the car.  We’ve compiled a series of Travel Tips for pet owners that will make your time away from home more pleasant and safe for both you and your pet.  And this starts with whether your pet should go along at all, or be better off at home.
