Travel industry upgrades pet accommodations


More than 29 million Americans say they’ve traveled with their pets in the last three years, according to the Travel Industry Association of America. So what are the best options for keeping your pooch comfortable on the road?

Andrea Arden, pet expert and dog behavior columnist for the New York Dog and Dog Fancy magazines, says airlines and hotels are increasingly upgrading their pet accommodations.

Some car insurance companies even offer injury coverage for pets. But the best way to protect your pet in your car is to keep them in a crate, or buy a fleece-lined seat belt strap or booster seat – which will give them enough height to gaze out the window.
