4 Tips For Traveling With Your 4-Legged Family

1. Plan Ahead of the Time

Planning a trip, especially when you are carrying your pets, is important because not all places are pet-friendly. Wherever you are going, you must research if the place allows you to take pets everywhere or at least to most places because you can’t leave your pets alone in a strange and new place. Durango is a pet-friendly place with lots of parks and play areas. You can easily find a pet friendly hotel in Durango where you can stay and they will be loved on by a warm and friendly staff.

2. Prepare Your Pet for the Trip

Your pet should be ready for traveling. First of all, you need to ensure the pet is healthy so you both can have a great time, or else it will be an energy-draining experience. You need to think about the safety so a microchip is essential. If it doesn’t have a microchip, use a tag on the collar with relevant information which includes your contact details. Other than your phone number, you can also mention where you are staying. Always carry a first aid box with you so you can handle any emergency case. Durango is one of those towns where you can easily find a vet, but still, it’s important to carry a first aid box. Some grooming supplies and toys are a great addition to the kit.

3. Fasten the Seat Belt

Most pet experts suggest using both harnesses and seat belts to ensure the safety of your pet, during a trip. Pups and cats love to curl on your lap but it’s not encouraged as it’s not safe. Remember, if your dog is not secured in his place, its safety is at risk and it can also cause hassle for you and other passengers. A crate can be used as well but it’s not as safe as a seat belt and harness.

4. Take Regular Breaks

It’s true that pets, especially dogs, like to travel but they might not have the same adventurer spirit like you, so take regular breaks when traveling with them or else they will get tired and their energy level will go down. Treat them nicely and offer them food and water if you have been engaged in any physical sport, such as running or hiking with them. Ensure they get proper time to sleep during the trip. Their sleep cycle is longer than yours so take care of it.
