When making travel decisions, choose what is safest and most comfortable to you pet. For instance, unless you’ll be able to spend a lot of time with your dog, he’ll probably be happier at home than tagging along on your trip. As a rule, cats are almost always better off in their own home. But if you have decided it’s best to bring your pet along, follow our tips for a safe and low-stress trip.

pet in cageThe safest way for your dog to travel in the car is in a crate that has been anchored to the vehicle using a seatbelt or other secure means. Dog restraints or seat belts are useful for preventing your dog from roaming around the car and being a distraction to the driver, but they haven’t been reliably shown to protect dogs during a crash. Most cats aren’t comfortable traveling in cars, so for their safety as well as yours, keep them in a carrier. It’s important to restrain these carriers in the car so that they don’t bounce around and hurt your cat. Do this by securing a seat belt around the front of the carrier.

Keep your pet in the back seat of the car. If an airbag deploys while your pet is in the passenger seat (even in a crate), it might injure your pet. Dogs and cats should always be kept safely inside the car. Pets who are allowed to stick their heads out the window can be injured by particles of debris or made sick by having cold air forced into their lungs.

pet travel oneNever transport a pet in the back of an open pickup truck. A quick pit stop may feel like no time at all to you, but it’s too long to leave your pet in a car by himself. One hazard is heat: When it’s 72 degrees Fahrenheit outside, the temperature inside your car can heat up to 116 degrees within an hour. On an 85-degree day, even with the windows slightly open, the temperature inside your car can reach 102 degrees in just 10 minutes. If you’re held up for 30 minutes, you may return to a car that’s 120 degrees inside and a pet who is suffering irreversible organ damage or death.

Taking your pet on a plane is very difficult. Be aware of the dangers of flying your pet in a cargo hold.

Animals flown in the cargo area of airplanes are killed, injured or lost on commercial flights each year. Excessively hot or old temperatures, poor ventilation and rough handling are often to blame. Many hotels, motels and resorts either do not allow pets on their properties or if they do, they charge a hefty charge for having your pet stay in your room.

Everyone loves their pets however when traveling, think about leaving them at home and let them have a ‘vacation’ from us as well. Consider all the alternatives to flying. If you plan to bring your pet on vacation, driving is usually a better option. If you can’t travel by car, your pet will probably be healthier and happier if you leave her behind under the care of a pet sitter or boarding kennel.

Traveling With Pets

Author: , September 12th, 2014

Pet TravelHotels and resorts across the United States are constantly amping up their amenities (VIP services, complimentary happy hours, special in-room dining menus) to provide more comfortable stays for their overnight guests. Of course, nowadays, when we say “guests,” we mean all guests, including those members of the family who have four legs and cute names. Guests that require a leash and walking services, check-in treats, and frequent praise. If you haven’t already noticed, pets are traveling now more than ever, and it’s only a matter of time before pet programs become an industry standard in hotels across the US.

According to the Humane Society, pet ownership in the US has more than tripled since the 1970s when there were approximately 67 million households that pet owned. As of 2012, there were 164 million pets owned, reflecting the fact that a whopping 62 percent of Americans have at least one animal. According to the Travel Industry Association, 30 million of these Americans travel with their pets every year.

Pet owners (particularly dog owners) are taking advantage of pampering pet hospitality, because hotels are asking them to. In fact, hotels are taking the extra step to pamper Fido with pet-friendly room service, welcome gifts, and even massages, knowing that our furry little friends are part of the family too and just as important as the one who’s paying the final bill.

Want to Take Your Pet on a Plane?

dogsMy best friend Bianca and her fiance Anthony are getting ready to move to Bianca’s home country of Switzerland, where they plan to marry this August.

Everything is slowly falling into place: They’ve found an apartment; Bianca will resume work at her awesome old job; and they’ve even booked tickets on Lufthansa, an airline that allows them to bring their dog Brutus, a pit bull, on board. This is the good news.

The bad news? Unless his owners get some pet training supplies from Pets at Home, Brutus might not make it over the Atlantic without getting tossed out of the plane. Figuratively speaking, of course – this obviously wouldn’t happen.

At Gay Realty Watch, we look for news to share with you about the gay real estate market – both lgbt real estate news and news specific to gay and lesbian real estate meccas.
