Stayz has recently released research on Aussies and our habits around holidaying with pets. Did you know, 71 per cent of us pet owners will take our beloved pet/s on holidays with us – and we’re not just bringing dogs and cats with us – fish, ferrets, guinea pigs, rats, snails, birds and reptiles come on holidays with us too! Further responses from the research revealed:
* More than one in three Aussies will leave their pet at home if they can’t find pet-friendly accommodation
* 67 per cent say the most important factor when planning to take their pet on holiday is pet-friendly accommodation followed by pet-friendly parks/beaches nearby (19 per cent) and a vet in the vicinity (8 per cent)
* It’s not just dogs that are having all the fun. One in eight bring their cat with them on holiday.
* Just like humans have ‘special holiday items’ pet’s do too! Ninety per cent have a holiday toy or bed for these special occasions!
