Moreover, don’t forget to consider your dog’s comfort level. Does he face travel anxiety? Can he/she move freely without difficulty? If you find that your furry pal faces any of these difficulties or he/she has special requirements, it is better to leave your pet behind in some boarding shelter or at friend’s house.

These things may seem unimportant or trivial, but enjoying your vacation with your pet is only possible when they are comfortable, healthy and happy to go on merriment along with you.
