While many Americans will be busy traveling, working and shopping this holiday season, it is easy to forget about man’s best friend. Pets are important members of our families, and we need to keep them protected during the holidaysWhether traveling or staying home for the holidays, here are some simple reminders from the experts on pet safety:
1) Have a plan for your pet
Before finalizing travel plans, be sure you have a plan for your pets. Many kennels are full during the holidays, and people you might count on to watch your pet might not be available. Don’t delay on making arrangements for your pet.
If it is too late to find a kennel or dog sitter, one option is to find a hotel that allows pets. Many hotels will allow pets so long that you keep your pet in a crate while you are out of the room.
