How to Keep Pets Happy and Safe on Vacation

Are you taking your pet away on vacation? If so, you’ll want to make sure you (and your pet!) are properly prepared. Many of us think of our pets as part of the family, which is why we want to ensure they have a good time when taking them on a fun vacation. Before packing them up, take a look at these tips on how to keep them happy and safe while on vacation.

Find the right place to stay

Although there are many pet-friendly hotels and Airbnbs, it’s always important to check that the location is happy with you bringing your pet. There may be an additional fee to pay or there are restrictions based on size, so be sure to double-check before you book.

Review your plans

If you’re planning on doing a lot of things on vacation that are not pet-friendly, that means your pet will be cooped up in the room while you’re gone. Some pets may be content with that, but others definitely won’t be. If there is a chance your pet would get distressed and destroy the place, either find pet-friendly activities or leave your animal at home.

Travel safely

No matter how you’re traveling with your pet, they should be kept on a lead or in a crate whenever possible. Carry their ID and appropriate documents in case you are stopped, and take frequent breaks on the road to let them stretch their legs, eat, and drink.

We hope that these tips help to keep your pet happy and safe on vacation. Do you need help to find the right insurance policies for your needs? Visit Abbate Insurance for your insurance policies in New Haven and neighboring cities in Connecticut!
