Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Travel Fun With Dogs

Trips with your pets can be fun, challenging or awful and often which of those options ends up being the case depends on you and your attitude and expectations.

We have a little pack of 4, making the sheer number a possible problem in itself… if you let it. One of our 4 suffers from ADHD… Yes you read that right, dogs can have ADHD and they pretty much have the same symptoms that kids with ADHD have.  We have another one that suffers with pancreatitis. And we also have one who fights fairly severe car sickness and often loses the fight.

But, we choose to see travel with our pets as an adventure and a part of the package of having pets; just like we did when we had younger kids.  Therefore whatever challenges, unexpected events or situations come up, we see them as part of life; part of our life. Whenever you travel with a family, whatever the make-up there will be surprises, challenges and issues, but there will also be joy, fun and laughter.

We have made major moves and taken trips large and small trips with them and we generally take our gang along whenever we can.  When we absolutely can’t, we leave them at home with a pet sitter or we take them and get a pet sitter for the hotel.

Through our life we have had birds, turtles and pocket pets that have also traveled or moved with us at times.

Why Can’t We Help Unload??

The best advice we a can give you is anticipate and prepare, but expect the unexpected and don’t over-react or get upset.  Make it all part of the experience and adventure and then it won’t seem so bad.  I am a writer/blogger so I look at it as future material. But we all send emails, write letters or tell stories… so look at it as future material!!

Monitor Your Pet

 

Monitor Your PetNow you can snoop on your pooch around the clock.  Cameras set up tomonitor pets online are becoming a staple at kennels nationwide, and animal lovers are using them at home too.

“No other tool or feedback could provide our customers with the instant gratification and satisfaction of seeing their dogs playing and having fun as video can,” says Greg Powers of Camp Bow Wow, a nationwide chain of dog daycare and overnight boarding facilities.

Dog owner Susana Trujillo, 52, agrees. “A lot of people my age are as neurotic about their pets as I am, and it gives you a good degree of comfort knowing that your dogs are in a safe environment,” she says.  She keeps tabs on Sadie Dogg, her Australian shepherd, who attends doggie daycare at Denver’s Mile High Mutts.

Pet cams also give vacationers visual access to their kennel-bound friends. “If clients call from overseas and can’t see their dog playing, we move him or her in front of the camera,” says Penni Phillips of Urban Tails in Houston.

Although dogs are the pet cam stars at most kennels, you can set up your own webcam for any home-bound pet. Buy a camera for upwards of $80, then use an Internet broadcast service like MyPetSitterCam.com while you’re away.
