It is important for every family and even every individual to go on holiday at least once every year but this does become a problem for many families for many different reasons. For some families, it is the cost of a vacation, for some it is their children and the difficulty to handle them while on vacation and then, for others, it is their pets. Many families who have pets do not have pet sitters or even friends that can stay home with their pets and therefore, they give up on the chance to go out on vacation. However, this does not have to be the case at all. With a dog, it is fairly easy to go on vacation as you can take the dog with you. All you will need to do is to find a dog friendly place to stay during your vacation and this should not be hard to find as there are many places that allow dogs in this day and age. With a cat however, this is not advisable as the cat will be likely to run away due to new surroundings and unlike a dog, you will not be able to keep the cat in by keeping the gate closed. With a dog, you can keep him indoors and he will be happy but a cat will always be looking for opportunity to escape and cats tend to get agitated in new surroundings.
Looking in to the logistics
It should be fairly easy for you to find many companies that offer dog transport if you do not have space in your own vehicle to take your dog with you. Of course, there is likely to be a cost involved and this will have to be part of your vacation costs. They will safely transport your pet from your home to your vacation spot and your dog will be quite happy provided you are not travelling too far. As a pet owner, your choice of vacation spot should also be well calculated. It is important for you to choose a place that is not too far away from your home as your dog will not be able to travel more than an hour or two.
Many domestic pet transport companies will give you details about how far a dog can comfortably travel. This does not mean that a dog cannot travel long distance but it just mean that the dog will be uncomfortable and unhappy in the vehicle during long periods of time. It would also be a good idea if you or one of your family members travel in the vehicle with the dog.
