What are the benefits of traveling with my dog?
The benefits of traveling with your dog are numerous. First of all, you won’t have to worry about leaving your dog behind and the care that he or she is receiving. This is a particular concern for dog owners who need to leave their dogs at kennels or boarding facilities. Most dog owners would feel better caring for their own dog than having him boarded in a kennel.
Secondly, bringing your dog with you on trips is a great bonding experience for you and your dog. Your dog will get to experience new places, which is always exciting for a canine companion. A trip with a dog can be particularly rewarding if you are going to a location with places to hike, walk, swim or do other activities that you and your dog can enjoy together.
Lastly, it may be less expensive to travel with your dog instead of boarding him for the duration of your trip. This is especially true if you are driving to a location and able to stay in a pet-friendly hotel or cabin. Many hotels or cabins only charge a small fee for lodging a pet, whereas kennel or boarding facility fees can be upwards of $50 to $100 per day.
