Tips to Make Your Dog Welcome in (Almost) Any Hotel

By 4Knines Staff. | Traveling with Dogs
Dog Hotel We love taking our dogs on vacation! During the recession, a lot of Americans rediscovered the joy of taking vacations closer to home, and more of those trips included the family dog, too. Taking your dog on vacation with you can be a lot of fun for both of you! Before you install a dog seat cover from our store and hit the road, though, you'll want to make sure your dog is ready for hotel life. Hotel living isn't the same as living at home, and you'll want to help make their stay as comfortable as possible. Check out these tips to help make your dog welcome in (almost) any hotel:
  1. Make sure you check out the hotel's pet policy. While more hotels are welcoming four-legged guests, not every hotel will allow them. Find out what their policy is and if there are any additional fees. This will start you off on the right foot with the hotel staff.
  2. Bring a crate. You might not use one at home, but it's a must on the road. A crate allows your dog a safe place to hide out if the different surroundings start to stress him out, and you can lock him up when you leave the room. That's for your dog's safety as well as the hotel staffs, since they may need to come into the room to clean while you are gone.
  3. Don't forget her favorite toy or blanket. A favorite item from home can be a big comfort to a dog in a new environment! Unpack it right away so she can enjoy it in this new place.
Most dogs do great at a hotel and enjoy the stay! Remember to give them a lot of exercise during your stay, since the living space is probably going to be smaller than they are used to living in. Plus, plenty of exercise means there is less energy to destroy hotel property. If that happens, report it immediately, and be prepared to pay for it. Most importantly, though, relax! Enjoy this special time with your pet.

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

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
