Are you considering taking your pet with you this summer on vacation? According to petrelocation.com, 60 percent of families traveled with their pet in 2010 and that number continues to grow. More and more families are traveling with their pets and experts say pet travel is fast becoming a multi-billion dollar industry due to the popular trend.
Gone are the days when you had to board your pet because a hotel or airline had policies against them. Now you can find pet-friendly hotels, campgrounds, vacation homes and even four-star resorts that specifically cater to pets and their owners. Some offer special pet beds, food and water dishes and services like pet massage, walking and grooming.
There are travel agents specializing in canine-centered vacations and you can even find canine camps where dog-friendly activities and lodging keep you and your friend dog-happy for a week or more at a time. If your plans require air travel, check with the airline for specific accommodations available for your pet. Some will allow them to be in the cabin in a pet carrier.
