Keep Your Animal Comfortably Situated

Whether you are hitting the road with your new pet or taking a flight with them for the first time, it’s critical to keep them safely restrained and comfortably situated throughout the journey. Keep them in a proper carrying case or comfortable crate if possible, and be sure to use an effective harness and leash so you can safely control their movement when needed.

Give Them Time To Stretch Their Legs

Traveling in a car or in the tight quarters of an airplane can be a lot for your furry friend. If you’re driving, make regular pit stops so they can walk around and use the bathroom if needed. If you are flying with your animal, take the time to periodically let them out of their carrying case while leashed so they can stand up and stretch their legs.

Feed Them Properly

Feed your pet a few hours before your journey begins. This will give them time to digest their food and relieve themselves before the day of travel is underway. You should avoid feeding them while they are being transported, as the combination of a moving vehicle and travel nerves can trigger motion sickness, nausea, and diarrhea in some animals. When you hire a flight nanny, they will ensure your pet is well-fed and fueled up for the day of travel.


Be Mindful of Temperatures

Pay close attention to the temperature when traveling with your pet. Take proper precautions if you’re spending long days driving in the heat of summer, and be sure to pack blankets or a pet sweater so you can comfort your animal if the pressurized cabin gets too cold during your flight.
