Simple ways to reduce your dog's travel anxiety

With summer fast approaching, chances are you’ve already started planning your next vacation. Dogs are a big part of the family with over 38% of U.S. households owning at least one. Unfortunately, our dogs don’t always enjoy traveling as much as we do.

The good news is that there are a few simple ways you can make traveling that much easier on your furry friend. Here are some tips you can use to make sure your dog is getting a vacation just as much as you are.

Take your pet to the plane cabin

If you’re traveling by plane, you may be able to bring your dog into the cabin with you if they’re small enough and the airline allows it. This can be incredibly comforting for both you and your dog.

Being in a comfortable environment and around their family will help to make your dog a little less stressed. If necessary, anti-anxiety treatments provided by your vet can also help ease your dog’s travel stress.

Take them to doggy daycare

Doggy daycare centers are a great way to ensure your dog has a great time on vacation while you’re away exploring local hotspots. At Eastern Shore Pet Resort in Georgetown, Delaware, dogs can play and romp around together on community playground equipment and keep cool in doggy water pools. ESPR also has expansive outdoor play yards for your furry family can relax and enjoy the sunshine just like you.

Let them stay in a doggy resort

Doggy daycare centers like Eastern Shore Pet Resort not only offer doggy daycare but also dog boarding services. Dog boarding is ideal if your vacation activities aren’t dog-oriented and you want to be sure your pet is in good hands. With a VIP stay at ESPR, your dog can enjoy three walks a day, playtime, an in-suite TV, and a private webcam so you can check in on them.
