Pet Travel Accessories for Your Trip to a Kelowna Pet-friendly Hotel

March 05, 2013 | by Christina Van

Traveling with the whiskered Molly or tail-wagging Charlie on your next trip to the Okanagan? Your flight and your stay at pet-friendly hotels in Kelowna will be a breeze when you pack some of the latest pet travel accessories.

From doggy life jackets to paw-printed hotel door hangers, these pet travel accessories will make your furry friend the best little traveling companion around.

An entire industry has risen around accessories for pets, and we’ve scoured their websites to find the tried and true products pet owners pack before heading to our Best Western Kelowna Hotel to enjoy a well deserved vacation.

Top pet travel accessories:

1. Metal-free leash and harness

If you’re taking your dog or cat on a flight, you’ll be able to whiz through security with this TSA (Transportation Security Administration) Fast Pass Leash and Harness. With a handy step-in design for easy use and a metal-free hold, you and your dog or cat won’t need any more pat downs!

2. Hotel Door Hangers for Pets

Even if you’re staying at one of the pet-friendly hotels in Kelowna or elsewhere, it’s a good idea to let cleaners and others know your pet is inside the room if you’re out. Cats and dogs who normally curl up to strangers might be out of sorts or in protection mode in a new environment.

With these paw-printed hotel door hangers that also say ‘Pet in Room – Do not disturb’ or ‘Pet not in Room – Service Requested’ in five languages, you can leave the room with peace of mind even when you’re abroad.

3. Pet passport/medical record

Yes, they’ve thought of everything. If you’re traveling abroad, this is a must-have to keep your pet’s ID and medical information in one place. This passport includes a photo so it’s easier to find your dog if she gets lost plus 18 pages to include passport, pet travel insurance and veterinary information.

Heading somewhere near an ocean or lake? The stunning Lake Okanagan is just minutes from our Best Western Kelowna Hotel. If you’re going to spend time on a boat during your holiday, prevent Rufus from drowning with a flotation device built for him. These doggy life jackets feature fast-drying mesh lining, Velcro belly fasteners, adjustable straps and a ring for leash hook-up.
