Traveling with Pets

As “Empty Nesters” we are finding the time to take a few more trips and see things that have always been on our bucket list to see. But since we have Biscuit the 1 year old “puppy” we either have to find a pet sitter or take him with us. He travels well, and is well behaved but not all hotels are pet friendly especially for a big guy like Biscuit. But we have found a few hotels that welcome even the big guys like him to stay at their hotels. One of our favorite places to stay is Extended Stay America because they are pet friendly as well as have a great reward system in place.
Why Extended Stay America?
They have pet-friendly rooms in all of their 600+ hotels around the United States it does cost us a little bit extra because he is bigger, but in any Extended Stay America we have stayed at the manager approved his staying with us. But I also love that they have kitchenettes so we can cook our own meals while traveling. It is a huge money saver and a great hotel to stay in while we travel. Here are some must have travel items when you are planning on traveling with a pet. I’ve learned the hard way though to remember to pack a “doggy” bag that contains the following items for Biscuit.
Toys including his rope and ball so that he gets plenty of exercise when we travel.
His bed because otherwise he likes to jump on furniture and of course his doggy bowls. We bring a gallon jug of water with us to use when we stop for potty breaks, so he gets everything he gets at home.
His leash is a must because without it he would be long gone in a new area and of course we pack his doggy treat to help keep him on track while we travel.
Last but not least we pack his food, because we want him to remain on the same food he gets at home. We pack extra for just in case we want to extend our stay by a couple of days but have only used the “extra” once.
