How to Travel with a Pet
Here are some easy tips for busy moms when you have to travel with a pet:

Do your research. Be sure to read your airline’s pet policies. Some allow an animal in the cabin if the carrier is compact, while others consign all pets to the baggage compartment below. Many require vaccines and “won’t accept pets during the hottest and coldest months.”

Create a haven. Make the pet’s travel carrier a soothing place by stocking it with toys and a blanket that “smells like the house.”

Don’t sedate your pet. You may think a tranquilizer will help Fido relax, but it could instead make him “more anxious” and cause breathing problems at high altitudes.

Stay calm. If your pet acts out, don’t yell. Most animals will “interpret this as attention, and your anxiety will only worsen the situation.” When your pet settles down, reward it with “praise and treats.”

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of and an established fashion/portrait photographer.

    We have a little bichon who we have never taken on vacation. I know there are motels who will allow pets, but I never wanted to worry about him barking all day long in the room if we weren’t there.
    And besides, we are able to take him to a nice lady and she keeps him in her house. So, we’ve never had to leave him in a kennel. I don’t think I could do that.
    So, all in all, we “both” go on vacation (our family and our dog) and have a good time.
