Do you travel with pets?

We took our little dog and while she is as good as can be---we found out many motels are NOT pet friendly. So--we are staying at a lower budget motel instead of the one that was provided due to our dog.

I think it's awesome when people can travel with their pets. It takes some serious research to make sure if a motel will allow pets, though. Like you need the manager to write it on a piece of paper, sign it in blood, and mail it to you with your reservation.

I wish we could. I just don't trust our pitty. She tends to get upset or bored when we're gone. When we got back from the coast this weekend, she'd eaten/annihilated: my son's jacket, 1 couch pillow, 4 medium nerf balls, a small toy storage pillow, and destroyed her rope toy (it was everywhere). I don't want to have to replace stuff for a motel. If we were to stay at a family member's house, I might consider it.

We don't travel with pets but if you have pets and can't take them, try to find a friend of family member to care for your pet even if it is just a day or two.

When ours were still alive, we did exactly what you're doing. We stayed in pet-friendly places, even if they weren't the best option otherwise. Never regretted it!

Easy, call ahead to make sure the hotel is pet friendly before making the reservation.

I would stay at a lower budget place that accepted pets too if I were in your situation. However if I was planning on traveling with my cat, I would make sure the hotel I was booking was pet friendly prior to leaving. Many of them are becoming moreso however, I used to work at one that was! There's usually a breed/weight restriction though.

We are not making the reservation--the job supervisor was....had no idea which motel until we got into town. He forgot to ask about the dog.

The only time I traveled with a pet is when I moved cross country with my cat. He was such a good boy-thanks to the sedative.
