Travelling with pets
For some pet parents, a trip is no fun if the four-legged members of the family can’t come along. However traveling can be highly stressful, both for you and your pets. If you’re planning to take a trip with pets in tow, we have some tips to help ensure a safe and comfortable journey for everyone.
It is not safe to let a pet roam a car unrestrained and pets that are not properly restrained while in the car, can result in dangerous situations – for people and pets alike. Unrestrained pets can be seriously or fatally injured, or could even hurt you, in a collision or sudden braking situation. In addition, they're a distraction for the driver, which increases the risk of driver errors.
If you do not want to put your pet in a transport box you need to find a way to confine your pet to a specific section of the car. For instance if you have an estate car, consider confining your pet to the back portion of the car. If you do have a large window boot, put up a wire grid to stop your pet jumping over the back of the seats. Line the pet’s area with blankets or place its bed in the corner so he or she can nap comfortably on the journey. Most pets find sleeping an easy way to cope with motion sickness.
Another option to ensure that your pet cannot roam around the vehicle is to purchase a pet safety belt. These belts ensure that should an accident occur your pet is not thrown from the vehicle or into other passengers.
If using a pet transport box make sure it is secured either between seats or on the floor. Make sure it is very secure to prevent it from moving if you stop quickly or get hit.
Remember, no matter where you’re headed or how you plan to get there, make sure your pet is microchipped for identification and wears a collar and tag imprinted with your name, phone number and any relevant contact information. It’s a good idea for your pet’s collar to also include a temporary travel tag with your mobile phone and destination phone number for the duration of your trip. Don’t forget it is now a legal requirement that all dogs are microchipped. Having your pet implanted with a microchip can improve your chances of getting your pet back if it becomes lost.
What else should I think about when deciding to travel with my pet?
There are numerous other considerations you should take into account but here are just a few:
- Make sure your pet is comfortable with travel
- Some pets cannot handle travel because of illness, injury, age or temperament.
- If your pet is not good with travel, you should consider a reliable pet-sitter or talk to your vet about boarding facilities in your area.
- If you are taking your pet across international borders, a pet passport is required.
- Make sure that your pet is allowed where you are staying. Some accommodations will allow pets and some will not, so check in advance. Also, when traveling, you should bring a portable kennel with you if you have to leave your pet unattended.
- Staying with Friends or Family: Inform your host that your pet will be coming along and make sure that your pet is a welcomed guest as well.
- Staying in a Hotel or Guest house: Stay at a pet friendly place. Some hotels and guest houses only accept small pets or pets under a certain weight; when making a reservation make sure you enquire about the terms of their pet policy. Try to minimise the amount of time your pet will be alone in the room. When leaving your pet alone in the room, inform the front desk/receptionist that your pet is being left alone in the room and place a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. Make sure the hotel/guest housel knows how they can contact you if there are any problems.
- Staying at a Park, Campground or Marina: Make sure these places are pet friendly, clean up after your pet and always keep your pet on a leash.
