If you’re like me, you can’t get through your day without thinking of your pup at least once while at the office (doesn’t help that I have an 8X8″ canvas photo sitting on my desk of my two favorite cuties!). And when the travel bug bites me, I immediately want to pack my bags and a tote for my two four-legged friends and begin thinking about all the cute photos I’ll Instagram of us on the beach. And then I think about the logistics and ugh, that photo of us running on the beach seems a little harder to get to.
Lucky for me, working at Diamond PR and seeing all the ins and outs of travel has helped with the puppy travel planning by a long shot. Here’s a few helpful hints to make that road trip #pawsome:
-Accommodations: While many hotels are ‘pet friendly’, take the time to find a place with a pet package with added perks. This will help you pack light for your doggie’s tote bag, and give your pup some new things to enjoy. Though all W Hotels are pet friendly, the W Fort Lauderdale VIP Pet Suite comes with a doggie bed, water and food bowls, doggie treats, custom bandana (which is totally going to rack up the IG likes) and the package also waives the pet deposit and the daily clean up fee – so your wallet and your pup will love it. Also, look for a place that’s near a dog park, or better yet, next to miles of biking/hiking trails your pup will be excited about for hours. Suncadia Resort in Washington has more than 40 miles of outlined trails for its guests to roam. Guaranteed your pup won’t be bored, and you’ll enjoy the sites and sounds of the mountain landscape.
