Most of us wish to take our pet with us for a travel. To ensure a safe and enjoyable vacation, consider to purchase a carrier much before the date of travel. Choosing the carrier is one important thing and also making the pet accustomed to it is another important consideration. Remember to train your pets to use carrier and avoid any unnecessary issues during travel.
The pet gets feared when allowed to get into the carrier for the first time. However, make it understand that there is nothing scary of the carrier. Talk to it slowly and pet it and allow it to go in. Keep one or more favorite treats or toys in the carrier and ask the pet to bring them. This assures you to make the pet go inside the carrier. Gradually, allow it to play with the treats in it. Also feed the pet in the carrier itself. Remember, you should train in such a way that the pet loves to be inside it. It should not be like a punishment for the pet. If you are furious and order to get it inside, the pet will never listen to you. So, be calm and peaceful when training.
Training the pet to use carrier from a young age can be helpful. Use small backpack carrier when it is smaller and as it grows you can prefer a crater to take it to a veterinarian or to a park. This makes the pet slowly and gradually get used to the crater. So, on the final day of travel, you need not worry as the animal goes easily into it and stays calm and comfortable. However, when traveling, it may get frightened. So, pet and soothe it during travel often to make sure that it is safe.
