Tips for boarding your dog in your hotel room

By 4Knines Staff. | Traveling with Dogs Dog Info
25 Dog Hotel2 Spending time with our loved ones around the holidays often means traveling. Some dread it, and some love it. And needing to bring your pet along can make a trip seem much more daunting than it's worth. Unless, you know how to prepare yourself and your dog for the obstacles that will most certainly occur. First things first, make sure the hotel you desire to stay at allows pets. Then find out how much it costs and if there are any restrictions, for example size, age or certain breeds. It's not uncommon for hotels to turn away guests with puppies or very large dogs. Next, during booking, ask about the hotel's surroundings. Is there a common area where your dog can get some exercise? Any green places nearby for bathroom business? If the hotel doesn't have a common area or any grass within walking distance, ask about local dog parks that may be close by. If the answers are no, the hotel probably isn't as pet-friendly as it claims to be, and you should keep searching. It is also a good idea to ask about pet concierge services. Some urban hotels may provide dog sitting or special beds and treats for pets that are left behind while their owners are off site-seeing. And this will help you feel better about getting out without your pooch! (If you do decide to leave your pet in the room, and your chosen hotel does not offer pet services, be sure to use a crate for your pet's safety and comfort, and for courtesy toward the cleaning staff). Finally, consider requesting a ground-floor room to better accommodate late night or early morning potty breaks. And the most important tip is to remain calm and positive in order to help your dog do the same and to reduce his/her anxiety about being away from home. Staying in a hotel room with your pet is completely doable! Be sure to check out our other tips on safe car and air travel. And visit Pets Welcome for more travel tips.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Split rear seat cover (no hammock) and Split cargo liner

I just purchased these items to use in an Infiniti QX30. The small cargo liner fits well with lots to tuck underneath - so good coverage if I need to drape it over the bumper for loading camping gear, etc. The regular split seat cover is just a tidge big, but with some tucking here and there it covers the seat well. Good quality and prompt service. I recommend this product.

My husband and I both have this cargo cover in our SUV's and I just bought the small for my mom for Mother's day, as she dog sits for us. We love them!

The Seat Cover is amazing. I'll have to order one for the bench seat in my Kia Sportage and another front seat cover.

This product is amazing and so is the company. I was concerned it wouldn't fit my F350 Super Duty crew cab. I emailed them to ask and they responded really quick. I got the cover and it is everything they show it is & more. It fits perfect. I also bought the side covers for the doors in the back.
