ATLANTA, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- David York has made summer travel a bit easier with Barking Hound Village Airport, just minutes from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Park your dog – and your car – at this 10,000 square-foot boarding facility featuring grooming services, luxury suites, all day free-play daycare, airport shuttle service and extended hours from 6 a.m. to midnight plus a separate entrance so not to disturb other overnight guests. Like all BHV locations, Airport is staffed 24 hours a day.

But whether you're taking planes, trains or automobiles, if you're bringing your pet, York offers eight essential tips:

  1. Make reservations and ask for pet-only, non-smoking rooms. Also, request a ground-floor room for late-night potty runs.
  2. Travel on an empty stomach to avoid car sickness. If the trip is long, feed a smaller amount than normal at least two hours before you leave.
  3. Make sure your pet stays hydrated. Carry a portable water filter, boil water from home and store it in air-tight bottles or use commercial bottled water.
  4. Leave the front seat for humans. If an airbag deploys while your pet is in the passenger seat (even in a crate), it might injure your pet.
  5. Take your walks in the morning or evening. Midday heat can overwhelm your dog.
  6. Be sure to take plenty of your dog's regular food. Changing his diet can cause an upset stomach.
  7. If you have to leave your dog alone in your hotel room, make sure to place a note on your door for housekeeping.
  8. Always be sure your dog's ID tag includes your cell phone.
