Jingle Bells, your dog's swell…but how do we keep them safe???
Those are the lyrics, right???? LOLz!
Following these tips from Camp Bow Wow (below) will keep your pet safe while traveling this holiday season!
Being prepared for travel is key.
Check all airline requirements before boarding a plane. See if your pet can travel in a carrier that can be kept under a seat in the cabin or if your pet must travel by freight. Don't try to sneak your pet onboard either, it can cause trouble later down the road.
Familiarize your pet with its carrier. Pets like familiarity. If you plan on keeping your pet inside a carrier while traveling, allow your pet to get used to the environment by placing him or her in the carrier for a few minutes each day. Gradually lengthen the time until your pet seems at ease with being confined in this space.
Make sure your pet stays comfortable with blankets and anything he or she needs through the flight. Also, feed them no less than five to six hours before takeoff.
Have fun and stay safe while traveling!
