Small Dog Accessories Needed for Traveling

Small Dog Accessories Needed for Traveling

Small dog accessories can make traveling with your pet much easier and safer. There are many places where you can take your pet where he can have a good time too. Take him on a fishing trip, to the beach, to the park, to visit friends or even for a short drive. Before traveling with your pet, it’s important to know that he can be injured in the same way as kids if you slam on the brakes or if you’re involved in an accident.

For this reason, pets need to be secured in a vehicle to keep them safer and there are several accessories available to accommodate this need.

As the proprietor of a bed & breakfast in Oaxaca, Mexico, I frequently field inquiries from travelers with plans to visit the city who are intent upon bringing the household dog or cat along for the vacation. They initially ask if pets are permitted in our guest level, and then after receiving a reply in the negative, in a second email ask for names of alternate hotels or other accommodations which do accept pets. The advice is always the same, but the inquiries keep coming.

This pet lover and owner of a brindle boxer is not a pet psychologist, nor professes to intimately know what’s right or wrong when it comes to decisions about the household dog or cat (or one’s children for that matter – lord knows we’ve made and will continue to make mistakes raising our daughter), nor the impact that leaving a pet behind could have on the mutt or his “parents” or “siblings.” However, there are certain factors which ought to at least be considered prior to deciding definitively to take Fido or Tabby along for the trip.

Yes, Some Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts in Oaxaca Do Accept Pets, Including Dogs and Cats
