Tips for boarding your dog in your hotel room

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.

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
