DealDash Do’s and Don’ts of Traveling with Pets


Taking your pet along on vacation can be a great experience for you and your pet. Be sure to follow these DealDash Do’s and Don’ts of traveling with pets.

Everyone likes to take a vacation. Sometimes you may want to bring your furry friend with you when you are traveling. Pets are a big responsibility, and it takes a lot of work to keep up with them when you are visiting another place. Traveling with pets does not have to be difficult. Here are some of the do’s and don’ts of traveling with pets, from DealDash.

Do Follow the Hotel Pet Policy

Each hotel has its own rules when it comes to bringing pets with you. It is important to abide by the hotel rules for your animals. Make sure you look up the hotel that you are planning to stay at so you can know the hotel rules for pets. Following the hotel rules are imperative for the safety of others.

Don’t Bring a lot of pets

Bringing more than one or two pets can cause a lot of issues. You can have a higher cleaning fee, and you may have a hard time keeping up with your pets. Pets can easily escape from where you are staying, so it is important to bring only one or two animals to keep things in order.

Don’t Leave Your Pet Alone

Many housekeepers refuse to clean a hotel when dogs are left alone in the room. It is best to take your dog for a walk while the housekeepers are cleaning your hotel room or coordinate with the housekeeping supervisor. Leaving your pet alone can also cause havoc. They can tear up the room while you are gone. The best thing to do is to be sure that you bring a crate with you to the hotel. This way if you absolutely have to leave your pet in the room they will be safe and contained in their own little “den”.

Do Clean Up

It is important to clean up after your animal if he or she spills some food or misses the bowl. After you clean up your pet’s mess, you should let the housekeeping staff know so they can do a deep cleaning. Cleaning up after your pet will also help you avoid damages and extra cleaning fees. You should consider packing a few cleaning supplies such as a roll of paper towels, an enzyme cleaner, and some Febreeze.
