Dealing With Dog Stress When Travelling

There are many situations that could spell stress to your pet dog, but the most common causes of stress or discomfort could be attributed to travelling. You could imagine your dog like a little kid (or probably even an adult) experiencing motion sickness while in a moving car. What actually causes them to experience stress when travelling is the fact that they have been just prior to boarding.

The good about it though is stress among dogs can be minimized, if not avoided.

Whether it is long or short drive, it is best to make sure that your dog is able to handle the travel without feeling any discomfort. A feeding schedule is advised when taking your dog while you travel. Normally, if it’s a short drive, which is around 30 minutes to less than an hour, it is better to just feed your dog once you have reached your target destination. If it’s going to be a long drive that would last more than an hour to a couple of hours or so, it is better to feed him at least 6 hours before travel time. Just make sure that you give him a walk and make him do his “thing” before boarding time.

If you will be doing the driving yourself, it is best to have someone sit beside your dog during the travel, preferably someone your dog is already familiar and comfortable with. That way, should the car have to pass on a lot of bumps on the road, there is someone who can keep your dog in place and make him feel safe during the travel.

By the way, dogs feel at ease when they sit beside the car window, especially if it’s open. They’re like little kids. They tend to stay put most of the time when they see what’s on the road. Just make sure that the windows are not too wide open for them to put their head out.

Traveling & Hiatal Hernia Treatment

There are many people who suffer from hiatal hernias each year. A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or body part into an area where it shouldn’t be. A hiatal hernia is a condition that occurs when the part of the stomach, and in some cases the lower part of the esophagus, pushes through the hiatus in the diaphragm into the chest cavity.

Symptoms of a hiatal hernia are similar to those of GERD or acid reflux disease. These include heartburn, sore throat, hoarseness, chest pain and regurgitation. These are mainly caused by reflux of stomach acid and stomach contents. Health care professionals rarely suggest surgery as hiatal hernia treatment. In some cases medications similar for acid reflux symptoms may be prescribed for a hiatal hernia treatment. However these drugs are notorious for their dangerous side effects and allergic reactions that can be deadly.

Another factor to consider is the fact that many people enjoy traveling and extended stays abroad. This can present a problem if you have become dependent on such prescription drugs. Fortunately there are many home cures and natural remedies that can be used as hiatal hernia treatment. These have proven to be extremely effective for many and are well complimented by a healthy diet and regular exercise. The great thing is that these natural remedies are easily accessed in almost any part of the world.

And in fact, traveling can actually often make the diet and exercise portions of your hiatal hernia treatment easier as well. And if you are traveling to countries like China or other old world countries, there may be other natural remedies available that you can try. The fact is that traveling itself often forces you to walk regularly and get more exercise than you might ordinarily. Many people fail in the exercise portion of their hiatal hernia treatment at home because they get bored of walking the same places or staring at the same walls in front of the treadmill. Traveling normally provides many new sights and paths to travel along with great new experiences that can revitalize the soul.

You will often find that traveling can also provide many more healthy options for eating that can make hiatal hernia treatment easier. Western society and in particular the North American way of eating with it’s fast food and highly acidic diet has played a huge role in many health conditions, especially those involving acid reflux.

Other countries often have more natural produce which in turn creates an overall healthier you. So if you having been contemplating traveling but have been worried about your hiatal hernia treatment, do a little research on your planned destinations and GO FOR IT! If you are really concerned then spend a little more time planning your trip and how you can best accommodate your hiatal hernia treatment needs. Plan outings ahead of time that involve walking and sight seeing.

See what fun sports there are to enjoy that aren’t too strenuous or make reservations for excursions from your hotel in advance. Look up menu options at your hotel. Most airlines also will provide special meals if needed. If you are going to be staying in a location for an extended period of time then check out what local markets are in the area and you may even be able to have your hotel stock your room with items you need on your arrival including any natural remedies you are used to taking as part of your hiatal hernia treatment.

Be An Air Courier and Travel the World Free!

Air courier travel is a bargain hunter’s dream and appeals to budget travellers from all walks of life: students, business men and women, retired individuals and couples, families, freelancers, writers, international traders, not forgetting holiday makers and people who just love to travel!

No special qualification or knowledge is needed to become an air courier, but it helps to be flexible, especially if air couriers hope to gain the highest award of all, namely REGULAR FREE TRAVEL. Getting regular free travel normally means being ready packed and able to travel at a moment’s notice if an unexpected need arises or another courier falls otherwise absent or ill.

Anyone over 18, a passport holder, in good health, can become an air courier. Nationality is usually unimportant, and one does not need to be of the same nationality as the airline used. Retired people are preferred by many companies as being more reliable and professional, and having more time to travel, than their younger counterparts.

Air couriers are used by delivery companies to accompany items to various destinations, domestically or overseas. Those items include: letters, photographs, legal papers, business proposals, contracts, computer disks, reports, product prototypes. Most are international delivery firms who can provide free and low cost travel for air couriers to virtually any country on earth.

But it isn’t just big companies that require air courier help. Air couriers might also get to accompany urgent deliveries overseas, such as perishable gifts, animals, children, medicines left behind by travellers, culinary delicacies for smart international restaurants, and other time-sensitive items that must reach their destinations safely, and on time!

The air courier is not usually required to physically collect or accompany the package or even liaise directly between sender and intended recipient. Usually, all the courier does is remain responsible for the package between airports.

That ‘responsibility’ rarely involves carrying the package. In fact the air courier might never get to see what he or she is accompanying, even though those items will be listed as the courier’s personal baggage, and that’s why it travels speedily through Customs throughout the journey.

Typically air couriers turn up at the airport of departure at a pre-appointed time, where they are usually met by representatives of the courier company who may also process air couriers and packages through Customs. On board plane the courier may carry the package or it may travel separately in some secure place.

At the destination airport company representatives will again process couriers and packages through Customs and give couriers their return ticket once their role is complete.
