Moving with pets can be super stressful, not just for the human but also the fur baby. With a little planning ahead the experience doesn’t have to be horrible!
We had our first dog Buster, and Australian Shephard, for 13 years. My husband was in the Air Force, and that meant a lot of moves, and trips home. We always took Buster dog with us, and we rarely had any problems. He was such a good and obedient dog. In 13 years and with dozens of trips, he only got sick in the car 1 time. It happened to be the same time our toddler got sick. We were an hour down the road from visiting family. Buster vomited and had diarrhea at the same time our toddler had a blow out. Needless to say it was a horrid experience, but we really do laugh about it now.
My moms dogs always had travel anxiety though, shedding half their coat on a trip. Their vet came them an anti-anxiety to use on trips and it really helped immensely.
Our pet friendly rooms have always been surprisingly clean and not stinky, and the hotels were always very accommodating. We even lived in a hotel for 2 months one summer with Buster Dog.
We’d love to hear about your pet traveling experiences! Did you have an extraordinarily wonderful or horrible pet event?
