An entire week off from school is fast approaching. What are you going to do with your pets and kids running wild around the house? Send them outside, of course! But wait, it’s a muddy mess out there right now…what to do, what to do? 

The fact is that while pets and kids can be the best of friends, everyone benefits from having a plan. With this in mind, we hope to make your spring break a breeze. 

Air Travel 

Our central location makes traveling throughout the country relatively easy. However, any type of traveling requires extra attention to your pet’s microchip, tags, medication, and nutritional needs. 

Air travel can be expensive (larger animals have to be kept in cargo areas), and you have to obtain a travel certificate (required by most airlines). This indicates that your pet is fully vaccinated, protected from parasites, and healthy enough to travel. Before making arrangements, schedule a wellness appointment for your pet in case there are issues that could inhibit travel. 

Hit the Road 

Road trips are the natural choice for pets and kids, and we have a variety of destinations available to us. For example, consider the following: 

Spring Break Fun for Pets and Kids 

It’s no secret that we have the best of everything in Michigan. Remaining close to home during spring break could be the perfect choice for your family. Enjoy any number of fun activities in Waterford, explore dog-friendly eats in Grosse Pointe, or visit the Bow Wow Bake Shoppe. You and your pooch could also head to Detroit to check out the riverfront and book a room at a pet-welcoming hotel for a fun “staycation.” 

There’s Always Boarding 

If your destination is too far or is jam-packed with activities that aren’t pet-friendly, please consider boarding your pet with us. We offer safe, cozy, and comfortable accommodations for your best fur friend while you’re away plus lots of extras to make your pet’s staycation a true treat. 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the team at Union Lake Pet Services. Happy trails!
