Travel Petiquette

For a pleasant getaway with your pet and to make sure you’re welcomed back, here are some common “petiquette” tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure your pet is up-to-date with vaccinations and has a current ID tag.
  • Take a minute to locate the closest veterinarian to where you'll be staying.
  • Book a room on a ground floor near an exit for easy bathroom breaks, then always clean up after your pet.
  • Ask the front desk staff for recommendations on the best places to walk your dog.
  • Don’t leave your pet unattended in your hotel room; if you must, alert hotel staff.
  • Keep your pet on a leash.
