✈️ Bring Your Pup On Vacation 🏝, The Stress Free Way

Are you already California dreaming about your vacation? We get it, we do it too. But if you’re anything like us, that beachside feel is a bit incomplete without your favorite pal wagging their tail next to you and making paw prints in the sand.

While some pet parents assume that traveling with their pups will be stressful, bringing your dog on vacation can actually be a great experience if planned properly in advance. 

Book a Pet Friendly Hotel

Hotel policies are one of the biggest reasons pet owners dismiss the idea of bringing their pups on trips. There are many pet-friendly hotel options available in Los Angeles. Some hotels even offer dog beds and dog-friendly room service to make you both feel more at home.

If you’re searching for a pet-friendly hotel for your next trip, consider booking with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Beverly Hills, La Peer a Kimpton Hotel situated in the heart of West Hollywood and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts in Santa Monica. These hotels are known to go above and beyond for their guests, two legged and four legged. We always suggest calling the specific hotel to be sure before booking a room. Additionally, make sure you get the reservations agents name and request a confirmation letter of your booking that includes your pet as an accompanied guest. We do this when traveling and Benny receives more welcome amenities from the hotel then we do!

Pack Some Of Your Pups Gear

Help your dog keep calm by packing a couple of their favorite toys or familiar blankets. The comforting scents will keep your dog relaxed while you zen out and get savage with some Vitamin D.

Choose the Right Crate

Most planes require a crate for traveling dogs, but that doesn’t mean your pup doesn’t deserve a little extra leg room, too. Always buy a crate that has plenty of room for your dog to sit, lie, and stand in comfortably. Some parents put toys and blankets in the crate to keep their pup company. However, this is up to you, as we always suggest to monitor your dog while playing with toys. 

Get Plenty of Exercise

Whether traveling by air or car, it’s best to give your dog plenty of exercise before departure time. We always take Benny on long hikes the morning of, to burn off his energy, and trust us, it's not an easy task.

By not exercising your dog, it's more likely to experience anxiety throughout the trip. A tired pup, is a classy pup.

Proper ID

You wouldn’t show up to the airport without your passport or wallet, so don’t forget to grab your dog’s ID. Always make a quick trip to your Vet's office before any air travel. Your Vet will most likely issue you a letter of good health in case the airlines request such document.

With a little planning, you can enjoy a vacation with your best friend!
