According to the TPG and Airfarewatchdog.com reader survey, the most popular reason travelers fly with a pet (40.7%) is because they can’t leave their pet at home. Moving to a new location came in second, with 27.4% of the vote. For 21.9% of travelers, it’s the need for emotional support.
I travel full time—sometimes with my 2 Pets. Over the last 4 Years, I have tested a lot of travel gear from Pet carriers to pet bowls. These are the ones I love and stick with trip after trip, these Essential Pet accessories are the most versatile and reliable for my Cats and me.
