Tips

Once you have established whether pets are welcome or not, you should ask a few questions to avoid any surprises:

  • Are all pets welcome? Perhaps they dislike cats or dogs that bark too much.
  • Are there any other animals resident at the establishment? For example, a territorial resident meeting your unneutered male pet may not bode so well for your stay.
  • Is there an enclosed are? If you are visiting an area where it would be dangerous if your pet escaped, like central Johannesburg, an enclosed space is going to make your pet-friendly holiday a lot less stressful.
  • What is the pet policy? Are pets required to be on a leash at all times? Do you pay extra for pets?
  • Are there walks or open spaces nearby where you can take your pet to stretch his legs?

Once you have figured out these details, you should be on your way to a fun, stress-free holiday with your pet.

Please do ping us if you know of other resources and online guides that we can include. If you cater for pets, please ensure that you register your establishment with one (if not all) of the online directories!

Among those to emerge were the earliest carnivorans (members of the order Carnivora), whose living representatives include the cats and closely allied families, such as hyenas and mongooses, as well as dogs and closely allied families, such as bears, weasels, and seals.

Fooding for the Future

Like their huumans, cats and dogs have their own fooding behaviors. When observed closely, you will notice small differences between mutts, pups, masters and nobles. Some research indicate that these differences start right from the food selection step, when the bowl is offered. The whole food selection routine requires organoleptic attributes of the food such as odor, taste, and texture.
