Traveling with a pet

June 3rd, 2015 at 05:43 pm

So we are between a rock and a hard place. We are deciding whether to take our dog with us on our road trip. Our choices as we see it.

First he comes with us but the is left in new city upon LAL and DH parting ways for august. He'll go into a kennel. Then my DH will get him when he gets back. This we hesitate since we are unsure how he'll react to a new kennel.

Two he stays where we lived for 4 weeks in the kennel we normally board him in. 4 weeks is longer than we usually do, we usually do 3 weeks. But it could be longer if my DH doesn't get a place that's pet friendly to live. It's a long time.

Three is put him on a plane and send him to my MIL. Ideally I'd like to do this. We did this with our last dog when we moved cross country 10 years ago. And my DH would pick him up when he drives cross country again in August. Now the only issue is convincing my MIL to do it.

Of course traveling with a pet cross country means that we'll be checking into hotels and then sightseeing. I have no idea what it'll be like. Possibly influencing our decision will be whether he can go to the national parks easily.

Any ideas appreciated.

    Oh, those are all such hard choices. I know the trip is important, but I'm wondering how you can adjust your trip to be dog friendly yet still fun for you. Do some National Parks have boarding? I'd look into that as a possibility.

    My dog was a great traveler in the car, but he hated hotels. He barked constantly if I left, so I was always trapped in the hotel for the night once I checked in. Or I had to take him with me if I went out, meaning drive-through restaurants were the only option! Traveling with a pet is never easy, but it's probably easier on him than being boarded for a long period of time. Hope your MIL comes through; that sounds like a good option, too!
