Planning a trip with your best friend? Before you do it's important to plan ahead and always keep the best interests of your furry, four-legged, or feathered friend in mind. Traveling with your pet can be a wonderful and bonding experience or a not so pleasant one. It's all a function of proper planning and preparation.
