Travel Tips

dogsonbus.jpg

Cesar Millan, as we have discussed before, is a leading dog behaviorist, TV star, and author who loves dogs. He is a favorite in many households and certainly here at SuperCoolPets. Cesar offers Travel Tips From a Dog’s Best Friend (NY Times 6/03/07) in his ever-delightful and inimitable way. Here is a snippet, but worth the read (it is short!).

Once you arrive at your destination, make sure you go for a long walk before you go inside the hotel or the condominium or wherever you’re going because that will give a dog a better understanding of where they are and what the surroundings are, and that the same rules and boundaries or limitations that you might have had in L.A. exist in Florida. That will make him feel so comfortable, so at home, and enjoy his new adventure.

Read entire one-page article.

Leaving Your Pet at Home

Memorial Day weekend is a big travel weekend in this country as many people start throwing back yard barbecues, opening up summer homes, or heading out to the beach. Good times. Do you take your pet with you when you travel, or leave him/her (or them) at home? Perhaps you want a vacation from your domestic duties. Maybe there are no pet accommodations where you plan to visit, or your pet is not particularly cooperative or healthy enough to travel.

Whatever the reason, you may choose to leave your pet at home. If you have helpful neighbors or family members who will take care of your pet (often the easiest solution for cats) count yourselves among the fortunate. In our extended family, we have customarily left the dogs at our good vet's kennel. That is a great solution if it is 1-affordable 2-a well-maintained, kindly facility 3-your pet needs medical care and 4--your dog has the appropriate temperment. Our current doggies would not emerge from a kennel sane, no matter how high the quality. AKC offers tips on boarding your pet.

Another option is a good pet sitter, so your animal can stay in a familiar environment with their routine, very important, not as disrupted. As with all services, recommendation from a trusted source is optimal. Failing that, your vet may recommend a service. Pet Sitters can be found on-line: National Association of Professional Pet Sitters or Pet Sitters International. Don't forget to check for reliable references before letting anyone into your home.

This customizable Komfort Pets Climate Controlled Pet Carrier can be taken and used almost anywhere--homes, garage, SUV, R/V, boat, plane for your dog, cat, rabbit.

Pet Friendly Lodging

frostcover.gif


With the summer travel months approaching, many of us are starting to make vacation plans away from home. For those who find it unthinkable to leave their pet behind, or don't have satisfactory pet-sitting arrangements, there are plenty of hotels that provide quality, pet-friendly accommodations.

According to an article in March 30, 2007 New York Times:

In a culture in which dogs and cats have become surrogate children (and grandchildren) and are sometimes better dressed than their owners, a growing number of hotels and resorts have welcomed four-legged guests in recent years, including the Four Seasons, the Ritz-Carlton, the Loews and the Kimpton hotels. But now, several luxury condominiums and private residence clubs are taking pet-friendly policies further by offering services and amenities that rival those meant for humans, including grooming sessions, swim classes, massage treatments (no mere belly-scratch) and even a doggie psychic.

"There's easily been a 300 percent increase in the number of lodgings accepting pets in the last three years," said Derek Welsh, president of BringYourPet.com, a Web site devoted to peripatetic pets and their humans. "The trend is definitely shifting toward higher-end hotels. In order to truly compete, they are going above and beyond with amenities, trying to one-up the competitor."

Backseat Barrier

auto-pet-barrier-293028zz1.jpg

How to keep your pets under control while riding in the car. They always want to be in the front seat! One approach is to use the seatbelt discussed in a prior post. We usually place our canvas gear bag in the gap between the two front seats, but Super Cool Pets now has found another solution--the Backseat Barrier. Comes with an additional backseat divider which separates passengers from dogs in the backseat.

Backseat Barrier fits most cars, minivans, vans and SUVs. Easy to install and remove, or can be left in place. Constructed of nylon and faux suede and attaches under headrests. Dimensions: 7"x14" tall.
