Holiday Travel with Pets

It's almost that time of year again. You know ...the holiday season! Yes, it's upon us already. Marketing executives are working overtime to woo you with their advertisements from clothing to cell phones to seasonal attractions. Pet stores advertise as well but, what we found or rather did not find, were deals for those traveling with their fury family members. We have received numerous e-mails asking for "pet" friendly venues (i.e. hotels, restaurants, airlines etc.). Although there are several sites that cater to pets however, what about mainstream airlines, hotels , or restaurants? Holidays are a time to take a break, relax and be thankful for what we have and what's most important to us...FAMILY!! Pets especially dogs are considered family as well. Many are forced to leave behind their fury family member at kennels or boarding facilities. There isn't anything wrong with these facilities as long as you're familiar with them however, if you're like us you want your fury family member to experience other places than your "neighborhood." We like to travel and we have family everywhere and what better way to have the best of both worlds but to bring them along.

We compiled a list of websites to assist in planning your holiday travels. Although we have researched the information provided please contact the hotel or airline for updated information prior to you booking a flight or hotel.

        Official Pet Hotels

 Beneful (wouldn't feed this to our babies however, they have good suggestions to include pet friendly beaches, ski resorts etc.) (caters to ALL pets)

        Marriott Hotels (Dog)

        Choice Hotels (Cats & Dogs) (very informational, including airlines & their policies)
