Booking A Pet Sitter
There are so many things to plan for when getting ready for a vacation. Airfare, hotel rooms, rental cars, concert/event tickets, packing your luggage, etc. But, one of the most commonly overlooked aspects of vacation planning is booking a pet sitter to look after your furry family while you’re away. Our pets are our family and it’s important to keep their well being in mind despite the chaos of planning for a spring break vacation. That’s why ParaMount Pet Care makes it simple and easy to request and schedule pet sitting services up to a year in advance! You can log into your Time To Pet account (a top of the line pet sitting software we use) through your computer or through the Time To Pet app on your phone. Once logged in, you can request specific dates, times, and preferences for any special needs your pet may have. Although you don’t need to book a full year in advance, we strongly encourage you to book our services as soon as possible because we are a busy and ever growing business and tend to book up pretty quickly. Waiting until the last minute could potentially ruin your vacation plans if you can’t find anyone to watch your pets.

Tips For Traveling With Your Pet
So you’ve decided to take your pet with you on vacation, but you’re not sure how to go about it. Don’t worry, ParaMount Pet Care has your back! Here are a few tips on how to safely and efficiently travel with your pets. Firstly, keep your pet comfortable in a travel crate. You may be tempted to give your pet more space and roam free in the car while traveling, but this is a mistake. Keeping your pet crated gives them their own personal space and sense of security. Be sure to also bring the right paperwork regarding your pets health such as up-to-date vaccinations. Many pet friendly hotels, restaurants, and airplanes won’t permit pets on their property without up-to-date medical paperwork. Feed your pet less or skip a meal entirely on travel days as many pets are prone to stress diarrhea or motion sickness. Cleaning up pee and poop while traveling is never ideal, let alone on a vacation. It’s also important to remember to keep your pet occupied with a toy. Don’t bring multiple toys as this can really clutter up their travel crate giving them even less space to themselves. But, give them one toy they really enjoy or that will definitely keep them preoccupied. Keeping them distracted with said toy will reduce their stress levels and make the travel time seem more bearable for both you and your pet. Finally, don’t ever leave your pet alone in the car. It may seem like common sense to most pet owners, but it needs to be mentioned anyway. Leaving your pet alone in the confines of a car can be very dangerous and potentially result in heatstroke or death.
Pet Friendly Vacation Spots
While your vacation destination will vary depending on your location and budget, there are still lots of pet friendly vacation spots that you should consider this spring break. For example, Fort Myers Florida is an amazing place for you and your dog to visit as it is home to the Bonita Beach Dog Park. Both you and your dog deserve some fun in the sun so keep a lookout for dog friendly beaches this vacation season. For all you nature lovers out there, we suggest taking a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico. The La Luz Trail offers gorgeous scenic views of the Sandia Mountain Trail which both you and your dog are sure to enjoy. This city also has many pet friendly restaurants including such as The Backstreet Grill which offers authentic Mexican cuisine and a dog friendly patio. Eating unique quality foods is one of the best parts of being on vacation which both you and your dog should enjoy. For a more comprehensive list of dog friendly hotels, check out BringFido.com.
