If you have a pet dog, then you know that caring for it and taking it for a trip around the city can be a huge problem. The larger your dog, the more difficult it is to manage.
For hygienic purposes and safety reasons, most restaurants do not allow pets inside their establishment. Rules are rules. Your pet can be the most highly-trained dog around but restaurants do not usually make an exception.
So if you plan to move to a city and you plan to bring your dog with you, it is best to find a city that is animal-friendly. You will know that a city is animal friendly if it has a lot of parks that allow dogs, pet grooming salons, veterinary services, and pet shops available.
When it comes to hotels, there are some that allow pets to room in with their masters. In most cases however, your pet has to be really small as hotels usually have certain weight requirements when it comes to the pets that they allow inside their establishment. In addition, you have to pay a pet deposit fee if you plan to let your dog sleep in the hotel.
Should you decide to check-in to a hotel that does not allow pets, never try to hide your dog under a blanket. Most hotels now have CCTV cameras so they can monitor your every move.
To play it safe, call the hotel and ask about their policy regarding pets before you even book a night. This will help save you from potentially embarrassing situations.
Besides accommodation, one thing that you have to worry about if you plan to bring your dog to the city is transportation. Pets are not allowed in most public transportation so you either have to bring your car or rent one.
If you own a small dog, there’s a big chance that you might be able to get away with a lot of things. After all, people have more tolerance for smaller animals. It’s usually the owners of larger pets that have to worry about accommodation and transportation.
