Traveling with your GSD
I am traveling out of town for work in two short weeks here, and Berlin is tagging along. We (me and my coworker) are driving down to Memphis, TN, and staying for 3 nights. Obviously, we are looking for a dog friendly hotel, and while we are at work, I am going to take him to a boarding facility for the day (just in case anything were to happen while I am gone...dont wanna risk it..) So a few questions for those who travel with their GSD's...
Best hotel chains to stay at that are welcoming to your GSD?
How to find a 'good' boarding place.. he's intact, is this a problem at a boarding facility? I just would rather pay to have him played with, and watched, instead of leaving him crated at the hotel. He isnt staying over night, just while I am attending the class I have to take there. I am getting him the dreaded bordetella vaccine next week...anything I should know about THAT?
I have never traveled with a dog before, so this IS a first. Any advice is welcome. He loves car rides, and handles 2 hour car rides easily. (9 hours is ...well a lot longer, but we will be stopping for him).
And I am prepared, and aware of the extra hotel fees that come along with having a dog, and paying for the boarding place. Him coming along is the only option, and somehow, my boss doesnt care.
