PLANNING A TRIP?
Pet owners planning to travel for business or pleasure have an important decision to make. Should you take your companion animals along or leave them at home. While we know how tempting it may be to take them along, you have to consider that some animals are not suited to travel due to temperament, illness, or physical impairment.
The most humane approach is to think of the animals needs first. You may think that your dog won’t be able to tolerate separation from you and taking him is a good idea. But if you are vacationing, will you have to leave him in a hotel room or strange kennel? This will make your pet more anxious than ever, so finding a good, experienced pet sitter and leaving your pet in his own home would probably be a better choice!
