Bringing your pets on vacation with you can make your trip more enjoyable. Instead of having to board them or hire a pet sitter, you can keep them with you throughout your trip. If you are trying to figure out where to go for pet-friendly travel, our Canton veterinarians have some ideas for you.
Taking a camping trip is a great way to have a fun vacation with your dogs. Many camping sites are pet-friendly, but always call ahead of time to make sure that pets are allowed. You and your pets can explore the outdoors while breathing in fresh air and getting some exercise. Just make sure you keep them on a leash, so they will not wander off, especially if you will be in an area with bears or other larger animals.
If you have a particular city or town in mind for vacation, check accommodations and tourist attractions to see if there are pet-friendly offers. More and more hotels and bed and breakfasts are welcoming dogs and cats, but keep in mind that there might be restrictions, such as size or the number of pets allowed. As far as sightseeing, look for outdoor areas that you can take your pets to, such as historic districts or parks. You might also be able to find dog-friendly dining options in your chosen destination.
If your pets love water, consider going on a pet-friendly vacation involving water activities. You and your dogs can spend quiet afternoons on a boat, burn off energy by swimming or play a game of fetch on the beach.
When you are taking a pet-friendly vacation, making sure your pets are current on all shots is essential. Keep in mind that many accommodations that accept dogs and cats require them to have up-to-date vaccinations. Schedule and appointment, and our Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic will ensure that your pets are ready for vacation.
