Are You Traveling With Your Pet?

Are you making plans to travel over Spring Break? Consider including your pets on the trip. Finding pet-friendly lodging has become easier with short-term rentals (airbnb, vrbo, etc.) and many hotel chains offering more and more pet friendly options. You can also research websites, like or blogs like, which have resources to help you prepare for the trip and to plan fun activities once you arrive.

When on the road, make sure to keep water and treats easily accessible. Pets need frequent potty stops and keeping the window cracked can help with car sickness. Be sure to take your pet's current vaccination records with you. It's a good idea to have them in case of an emergency vet visit or if you are planning to leave your pet temporarily at a playgroup facility. Happy travels!

How Safe Is Your Pet in Your Car?

How safe is your pet while traveling in your car? The Center for Pet Safety, a nonprofit watchdog group found many (25 out of 29) pet restraining systems to fail in a recent crash test. The failure is not only unsafe and dangerous for your pet, but can also increase the risk to you and your family in the event the pet becomes a projectile and hinders the driver to react to the situation. The products do not fall under the Consumer Products Safety Commission and lack regulations or products standards, so do your research and find the best restraint system for your pet and vehicle type.   Definitely do not drive with your pet on your lap for your safety and your pet's.
