Its a hassle and big cost to hire a dog sitter or put your dog into a kennel. Also, can you trust those people? Why not take your pet on vacation with you? Believe it or not it may be a cheaper way to go! for American Airlines it costs $175 or less for your pet to board the plane. They can even be in the cabin with you if you reserve ahead of time! Pet friendly hotels add around $25 for pets to stay. All of you love your pets (i hope) and it could be enjoyable! You just might have to plan it out a little more ahead of time than usual. Costs and Availability may vary. Really consider it and have a fun vacation everyone!
