Wouldn’t you love coming home to someone who never, ever has a bad day? Many travel nurses wouldn’t have it any other way so they opt to bring their fur baby with them on assignment. There are certainly things to consider when you bring your most precious cargo along for the ride, such as finding pet-friendly housing, transportation to your new home base, and finding a vet and pet sitter you like. We put together a helpful list of apps that can make traveling with your pet a lovely walk in the park.
Rover connects pet parents with dog people who promise to treat their pets like family. They boast the largest network of 5-star pet sitters, dog walkers, camp counselors and belly rubbers. It might be the answer for your cousin’s destination wedding or when you’re feeling especially guilty with back-to-back shifts and are looking for someone who enjoys long walks (with your dog).
When you’ve ventured to a new place, the dog park is a fantastic way for you and your dog to make friends while getting some fresh air and exercise. Find out where the dog parks are in your area with Dog Park Finder Plus. It can also come in handy when traveling for shorter stays and you have Fido in tow.
Your dog doesn’t have to be named Fido to bring him along. Just check out Bring Fido and explore 100,000 places to stay, play and eat with your dog. They even have a listing of the top dog events worldwide for when you want to make your next vacation all about the four-legged family member.
One of the hardest things for travel nurses is every move means finding a new doctor, dentist, hair stylist, yoga studio, and on down the list. VetFinder takes the guess work out of finding your pet’s doc. Quickly look for vets nearby and find their office contact information and if they have emergency services.
CamScanner can help keep not only your pet’s life organized but other aspects that could use some TLC in the organization department. The app lets you scan documents using your smart phone camera and converts them to the always handy PDF. Create a pet folder for immunization records, medications and other important documents that you surely won’t need unless you don’t have them.
Up for a travel nurse gig only if your fluffy darling can come too?
