Pet Owners Confess to Vacation-Time Smuggling

“No pets allowed” while on vacation? USA Today recently ran an article indicating that many pet owners will try to sneak their furry friends right past such warnings.

15% of pet owners confess to sneaking their furry pals into no-four-paws allowed guest rooms, or even onto airplanes.

For pet parents, “guilt trip” can take on a new meaning. When not bringing along four-legged friends, 72% of people companions worry about the pets left behind at least some of the time, and 24% of the people worry during all or most of their trips. Even when friends or family host the pups and kitties, 50% of owners feel bad requesting the stay.

The survey, conducted online by Harris Interactive, uncovers other pet-travel challenges. A majority–75%–of the 2,341 respondents of whom 1,423 are pet owners, do not trust airlines to care for animal’s safety when they fly in a plane’s hold, whether as checked baggage or as cargo. Another bone of contention: 21% of pet lovers cite difficulties digging out pet-friendly lodgings or pet-friendly airlines.”

Here at Pet Peeps we offer pet owners a guilt-free solution. Pets are happier in their own homes and territories, not in boarding kennels or with friends and family members.

Our qualified pet sitters let you keep your pets comfortable and safe during your vacation so that you can have a guilt-free summer. You could even have one come in for a few weeks before you leave so that your pets know, like, and trust their caregivers.

Just schedule your service online to get your pets some peeps today. Stay out of the furry smuggling business!
