Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Vacation time is also pet time! According to Petplan Pet Insurance more than half of pet owners travel with their pets. That’s no surprise – who wants to leave their loved one behind when it’s time to relax and have fun? The survey also reveals that more than half of pet owners stay at pet friendly hotels and resorts. And a quarter of pet parents rent a pet friendly home. So all you landlords who rent beach homes … take note!

A great site for vacation rentals is Flipkey by Tripadvisor ( This familiar travel site also has a section for Paws Worthy Rentals Offerings range from a lovely home in the Hamptons to an eclectic lakeside cottage in England.

If you have to bring your lovely pooch or kitty on a plane with you, the right bag is so important for a stress free ride, for both you and your pet. Pick up a carrier from Sherpa Pet. Their carriers are airline compliant and their guarantee says they will reimburse your ticket and pet fee if you are denied boarding because of their product. That’s a great promise! You can find their product in most good pet stores, their site has store locations

If you have to leave your dog at home but can’t bear the thought of leaving her in a boarding kennel, try Dog Vacay. It’s a boarding service that has your dog staying with a host in their home. Watch their You Tube video describing how the process works Or call them at 855-DOG-VACAY (364-8222).
