Have a Pet Friendly Spring Break!

Wednesday, March 05, 2014 by

Whether you’re in school or not, mid-March is always a great time to take a break from the real world and spend some time traveling, relaxing, and spending some quality time with the people and pets you love the most.

No matter what your plans are, here are a few ideas that will help make this a fun and pet friendly Spring Break

Going out of town?

  • If you’re bringing your pet along, be sure to research your options to find all the best pet friendly hotels, restaurants and parks. These pet friendly spring break destinations are a good place to start.
  • If you decide to leave your furry pals at home, pet sitting sites like DogVacay and Rover.com could help you skip the boarding facility and find a great local pet lover to care for them, instead.

Staying put?

  • A few days off from work and school makes for a great time to work on one of those DIY pet projects you’ve been putting off. Get Pinterest-y and try making your own dog treats or assembling a pet-proof placemat for a messy eater.
  • If the weather is warming up where you are (hopefully it is!), get outside and do something fun. Hit the dog park, go play in the yard or take a walk and enjoy having an agenda-free day.


Spring cleaning?

  • With the change in weather often comes the desire to clean and straighten your home. Apply this activity to your pets by making sure they’re up to date on all their vaccines and have tags properly displayed.
  • Wash dog and cat beds and get rid of all those half-eaten chew toys lying around (and maybe buy a few new ones if you’re feeling generous).


No matter what you’re doing, if you’re spending time with your pets, they’re having a great time. Enjoy your spring break, pet lovers!
