on Proper Hotel PETiquette
|Knoxville, TN -- June 17, 2004 – In response
to the upward trend of traveling pet owners and their pets staying in pet-friendly
hotels, BringYourPet.com has updated their Web site pet etiquette section
to reflect the needs of both hoteliers and pet owners alike.
“Yes, we have noticed a substantial increase in the number of travelers with pets in the past year,” stated Pamela Wolff, Regional Director of the Vista Host Hotels. “And we expect to see this upward trend continue.”
Although most traveling pets are very well-behaved, pet owners still need to be mindful of both the hotel staff and other guests when traveling with their furry friends. After conferring with several hotel managers, Pamela Wolf assisted BringYourPet.com in compiling a list of pet etiquette tips.
First, always clean up after your pet companion. No one wants to accidentally step in Fido’s surprise! Second, keep your pet on a leash at all times when you are in the public areas. Although you know Fido couldn’t even hurt a fly, others do not. Third, remember to crate your pets when they are left alone in the hotel room. If a hotel staff member were to come into your room to clean it and Fido was on the loose, disaster could ensue. Fourth, try to keep pets out of the breakfast area; after all, that sausage patty is just too tempting for some to resist! And fifth, understand that, although hotels love to welcome their four-legged guests, they usually have to charge a pet fee because it takes more time and different products to clean a room after they have had a pet guest. More information about proper traveling pet etiquette can be found at http://www.bringyourpet.com/etiquette.htm.
Pamela Wolff also added that the number one thing to avoid doing at
a hotel when you are with your pet is “not telling the hotel that there
is a pet in the room. For the health and safety of other guests and our
staff, it is essential that we know there is a pet in a guest room.”
