The best part about having a pet is the daily dose of adorable, funny, warm and fuzzy. Pets are considered a part of the family by many, and when planning a holiday trip, how can you leave that snub-nosed pet alone at home? Planning a trip to the mountains but worried that you will not have your tail-wagging mongrel to wake you up in the morning? Or that you will miss your tabby curling up in your lap in need for your attention? 

Travelling with your pet has a few restrictions- granted, but if you plan ahead, the trip can be much more advantageous to both you and your pet. With many properties today offering pet-friendly stays, with amenities that will take special care of your pet, you can put all your worries aside and take that Fido out on a holiday. 

Today, we bring you a list of pet-friendly homestays in the alpine town of Manali in Himachal Pradesh. Before we proceed, here are a few tips for travelling with your pets:

  • Call ahead and let the property know that you are going to travel with your pet. Also, let them know of any special amenities that you would require to be present during your stay.
  • Acclimatize the pet to its carrier or crate so that the journey would be less stressful for both of you.
  • Make sure your pet has a name tag with all the emergency contact details mentioned on it.
  • Carry the eating bowls/drinking bowls/treats/toys.
  • Also carry the pooper/scooper/litter box/plastic bags.
  • Keep your pets hydrated during the journey.
  • Once you arrive, take your pet for a walk or let them explore the property. This will help them stretch their legs and also get familiarized with the new place.

And of course, do not forget to have fun!
