People face special problems when they have pets and wish to travel. They may be going away for work or on vacations or even moving location. If it’s a short trip the ideal arrangement is for the animal to stay at home and have someone take care of it. Alternatives are a boarding kennel or a professional pet sitter. However there are plenty of companies who offer animal transport if you’re moving country or traveling. Or with just a few simple preparations you can take your pet with you and ensure it is comfortable and cared for every step of the way. That way your “whole” family can enjoy the vacation together. And there are a lot more destinations and facilities opening up to pet owners as tourist operators realize there is a market to cater for.
