Don’t we adore our pets? We like spending time with them, as do all responsible pet owners; after all, we are pet friendly. So it’s only natural that we’d want to spend our vacation with them.
Doesn’t that all make sense? Plus, with a pet-friendly rental, we don’t have to worry about how someone else is caring for our much-loved pet, whether we did the right thing, whether they are happy without us, whether they are too happy without us, whether they will throw a fit when we return, or whether they will be fine when we return. We also won’t have to spend a fortune to have them looked after, nor will we have to worry about who will look after them.
When you take your pets on vacation, it doesn’t have to be simply a dog vacation, cat vacation, or even a cats vacation; I know a couple that take their entire budget with them. In fact, you may take almost any pet with you; just make sure you check with a pet-friendly rental business to see whether it’s okay where you’re going.
It may seem self-evident, but you must ensure that you can care for your pet while you are gone. You know you have to care for them at home, so it should come as no surprise that you must also care for them while you are away. However, it’s easy to overlook what you’ll need while abroad, especially if you’re used to having everything you need right at your fingertips at home.
So consider about what you’ll need on your pet vacation before you go; you can always buy whatever you forgot, but who wants that extra expense? Most pet-friendly rentals may need that you provide something for your pet to sleep on or in, such as a blanket or basket in the case of dogs. Food and drink dishes should be brought along, especially if your pet is accustomed to them.
There will be a pet holiday cottage contract, which is not uncommon; however, you must respect the holiday owner’s desire to maintain their property; after all, you wouldn’t want to arrive at a filthy pet friendly home that has been damaged by previous pet friendly holiday families, even if they don’t have pets.
Remember, we are all pet holiday ambassadors; the more we can ensure pet friendly rental property owners that we wish to look after their homes while we are on vacation, the more locations will become available for us to go on cat vacations, dog vacations, and other pet vacations.
Most high-quality pet vacation cottages will require that your pet be current on all vaccines, worming, and other preventative measures. You understand why this is important, especially when it ensures the safety of your pet. Any business that does not insist on this is putting your pet in danger.
Make sure your pet does not cause any harm to your pet-friendly rental house. You will undoubtedly be paid for any damage your pet does, raising your pet-friendly holiday prices; nevertheless, we do not want to discourage holiday owners from offering pet-friendly vacations, since this would reduce the number of pet-friendly vacations accessible to us.
If your pet requires specific circumstances in order to have a good time, make sure these are provided. If you’re on a dog-friendly vacation, be sure you can dry it or them out if the weather turns nasty without causing damage to your pet-friendly vacation home.
If you have large dogs, consider a conservatory or large kitchen area where they can dry off and sleep, or a separate grassed area where they may enjoy themselves.
If you’re taking your cat on a vacation, make sure there’s a window sill or something similar available so they can watch the world go by.
Large tiled areas may occasionally be found, which can be useful for keeping your pet friendly rental clean if the weather turns bad. Remember, it’s your vacation, so you don’t want to be cleaning all the time.
In most cases, pets are not permitted in bedrooms or on the second floor. If there are any limits on where you may take your dogs, be sure you follow them. If you believe your pet is exempt from any or all of the requirements, inquire with the pet-friendly rental business; it is possible that you are correct. It never hurts to inquire; it’s better to know ahead of time than to discover complications while on vacation with your pet.
Remember, if you can locate an area where your dogs are accepted on vacation, you and they may both have a fantastic time, so care after them. You will enjoy it, as will those who provide your pet-friendly rental vacation; you will want to return, your pet will want to return, and the vacation owners will be delighted to see you return. Everyone comes out on top.
