A guide for San Gabriel Valley and Pasadena Pet owners preparing for air travel

A guide for San Gabriel Valley and Pasadena Pet owners preparing for air travel

As a Pasadena pet owner, I know first hand about the complicated process of flying your pet across the country.  My first experience was back in 2007 when we moved to NY from LA.  I had many misconceptions – the biggest one being that I should provide tranquilizers so my dog could rest easy – nothing could be further from the truth.  The ASPCA has provided a great guide on how to prepare your pet for air travel.

Most airlines will allow pets to ride in the cabin if they are under 20 lbs and can fit under the seat.  If your pet does not meet that criteria, they will have to ride in the cargo area.  In 2007, this was my only option and our dog was stuck in her crate for 10 hours!  Now, they have airlines dedicated to pets.  Check out www.petairways.com.

Don’t get me wrong, traveling across the country with your pet will never be as easy as going to the Pasadena dog park.  However, with enough planning it can be easier than you think.

How to properly secure your pet for a ride around town

How to properly secure your pet for a ride around town

Most of us love taking our pets for a ride around town.  However, while most of us buckle up before the ride, we don’t do so for our pets.  As a Pasadena pet sitter, I’ve seen it more often with our canine friends.  How many times have we seen dogs with their heads hanging out of windows on their way to the Pasadena dog park?

Here’s a great guide from the ASPCA on how to properly secure your pets.  So whether you’re just picking your pet up from the Pasadena shelter or heading out for that family road trip, you’ll be prepared to protect everyone in your family!
