Blog Carnival: Traveling With Pets

By August 3, 2009

Follow me on:

When it comes to our pets, most of us would have to admit that we pamper them more than we pamper ourselves. Warm sweaters, homemade treats, trips to dog parks - nothing is too good for our four-legged friends.

As vacation time rolls around, though, we tend to think about pet sitters instead of pet travel. In some cases, leaving your dog or cat at home really is the best plan. On the other hand, many pets, especially dogs, enjoy hitting the road with their humans. This week's Travel Blog Carnival is all about traveling with your beloved pet. About.com's Travel Guides have contributed information, tips, recommendations and warnings, all aimed at helping you plan the best possible pet-friendly vacation.

There's a lot of good information here, so I encourage you to take your time reading through the links. Scroll down to the bottom of the post if you enjoy buying things for your pet or looking at animal photos. And, whatever you do, don't skip the Dog Chapel.

In the past, I have never even worried about traveling with my pets, but now I have a pretty little pooch that I am rather fond of and she is very attached to me. I was away from her a week this summer and both of us were sad! So, I am glad you have all this great information. I guarantee you that my next travel destination will be highly influenced by whether or not my “baby” can come along.

The process of bringing a ferret to Brazil from any place in the world need to starts with two different licenses: a license from IBAMA (Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente e dos Recursos Naturais Renováveis) and the second license is from the MINISTÉRIO DA AGRICULTURA authorizing to release the ferret at the airport.
