As pets are often considered family, the trend of having them accompany the gang on family vacations is becoming more common.

Subsequently, hotels and related retailers are making a point of being able to accomodate the furry friends.

A new resource, The Jet Set Pets, is “the first and only one-stop resource for luxury pet travel expertise,” offering advice and news on pets and popular spots, plus space for pet owners to mingle.

JetSetPets- Luxury Pet Travel

The site was created by travel writer Kelly E. Carter, who, in 2001, searched for a dog that didn’t bark and was small enough to travel in an airplane cabin.

She eventually found an eight-month-old longhair Chihuahua, Lucy, with whom she has spent the last decade traveling. Like the lifestyle her mom enjoys, Lucy has gotten massages and nibbled at a room-service delivery of chicken and carrots.

The Jet Set Pets offers updates on hotels and travel providers that offer services and amenities for the four-legged crowd.

The site spotlights various categories including destinations, products, services, events and community.
