3 choices for a traveling pet parent
Everybody needs a vacation.
Sometimes they also just have to get out of town due to work or family celebrations.
Unfortunately, not every trip is pet-friendly. And not every pet is travel-ready.
Either situation can leave pet parents stressing, scrambling or resistant to hitting the road at all.
Back when the animal count at Wayward House was two foster dogs, two forever dogs and a cat – one fur baby over the legally allowed limit in our municipality – we sure didn’t get out much.
When we did, we paid a big price.
Now that our pack is down to a more manageable size, figuring out accommodations for the dogs while we’re gone tends to be less expensive and less worrisome.
But we still only have three options when traveling without the dogs:
- Send the dogs to someone else’s house.
- Invite someone else to stay at our house.
- Pay to board the dogs at a professional facility.
Over the next week, I’ll review the pros and cons of each option and offer a few tips for getting the most out of whatever situation you’re in.
In the meantime, share what works best for you in the comments.
