Guide to Traveling With Your Pet--AAA Petbook

Fun read and helpful tips in NYTimes 3/21/08, Traveling with Charley

When it comes time to head to the vacation home, the big question may not be whether to pack the golf clubs, but whether to pack the family pet.

"If it's a short vacation, many pets will be O.K. staying at a kennel or with a friend," said Amanda Walter, an associate veterinarian at the Center for Veterinary Care in Manhattan. "And there are places that do doggie day care so that the dog gets a vacation of his own. But if you're gone for months, I think the dog is going to be happier if it's with you."


If you do decide to bring your pet(s) along on your vacation, trip or extended stay, don't leave home without a copy of the AAA Traveling With Your Pet Petbook.

Updated annually, the AAA PetBook features more than 13,000 hotels and campgrounds in the United States and Canada that accept pets. This comprehensive guide also includes more than 400 pet-friendly private campgrounds, dog parks and pet-friendly attractions. Practical tips on border crossing procedures, what to pack, who to call, and details on traveling with your pet by car or by air make this a truly invaluable travel companion.

Stuff happens--so call ahead!

Don't Overcook Your Pet -- Hotdog™ Temperature Alarm

Living in Florida, we see a fair amount of pets closed up in cars on hot days and sometimes wonder if they are ok. We know the owners don't realize how hot their car can get.

If you ever have to leave your cat or dog in a vehicle on a warm day, you won't have to worry as much with a Hotdog™ Temperature Monitor programmed and installed. It detects potentially deadly temperature rises within your vehicle. If the temperature exceeds your programmed setting, the Hotdog™ lowers 2 electric windows and will activate the car horn or lights to alert you (and everyone else around). The Hotdog™ is also available as a portable unit.
