For many pet parents, a trip is no fun if your furry, feathered or four-legged family members can’t come. Travelling can be highly stressful at the best of times. With your animal companions in tow, it can be even more stressful. However, thoughtful preparation takes the bite out of the stress – you can be guaranteed a fun and relaxed trip for everyone. Planning a road trip or holiday abroad? Travelling with your pet contains more than just loading your animal in the back seat and driving off.

Holiday packages are now being designed around pets and their guardians with sales of items like canine backpacks soaring.
