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!
