Many hotels, restaurants, and individuals will give your pet special consideration during your travels. It is important for you to do your part to ensure that dogs and cats will continue to be welcomed as traveling companions. Obey local animal control ordinances, keep your animal under restraint, be thoughtful and courteous to other travelers, and have a good trip!
