Luckily, traveling with pets has become a lot easier thanks to pet-friendly airlines and hotels like Cleone Gardens Inn. If you’re planning on visiting us in Fort Bragg, CA and need to travel by plane, read these tips on how to make plane rides easier for your pets and you!

Visit your vet ahead of time

Many airlines require proof of your pet’s good health and recent vaccinations before flying. Look up the rules for your airline and schedule a visit to your vet prior to your vacation. At the vet, be sure to discuss your dog’s age, health and breed since some dogs such as pugs and bulldogs have respiratory problems due to heat or lack of oxygen.

Approved carrier

To avoid being stressed at the airport, make sure your dog’s carrier is approved by your airline. If your pet is traveling in the cabin with you then a soft-sided carrier will work but as cargo the carrier must be in a hard-sided crate. Also try introducing your dog to the carrier they’ll be using so they become familiar and comfortable.

Pet relief stations

Learn about the airports you’ll be flying in and out of before taking off.  As of August 2016, federal regulation requires airports that serve more than 10,000 passengers per year to have pet relief stations available in every terminal. Pet Friendly Travel has a list of the airports that provide animal relief areas inside the terminal, post security. Some airports have scratchy grass areas while others offer real grass and play rooms. Refer to the list before bringing your pooch along with you on your next adventure so you’ll feel more at ease.

Once you’re on the plane your dog will probably settle down and accept what’s happening, so there is no need to worry the entire time if you follow these three simple steps beforehand. We are a very pet friendly hotel here at Cleone Gardens Inn, and will provide you with information about dog friendly places and beaches within the area. Call us today at 800-400-2189 to book your pet friendly room.

Most of what brings visitors to the California coast is the ability to experience the outdoors, and visiting the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is one of the most spectacular ways to do so.

You can take as much or as little time as you want in the gardens. If you wish to take a break from walking, there are a few places situated along and within the Botanical Gardens to stop at, such as the Nursery on the Plaza, The Garden Store, and Rhody’s Garden Café.
