PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Traveling with your pets can be a challenge.

From bathroom breaks to safely securing your cat or dog in the car, even the simplest trip can present some issues.

Petfriendlyhotels.com is changing that. Founded in 2000, the site bills itself as a guide to the best pet-friendly hotels, tourist attractions and more around the world.

Users can select a city and find several options to choose from.

The site started by featuring just a few locations in the United Kingdom. Now, it includes the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Mexico, Japan and more.

From luxury hotels to lower-cost options, you’ll find places to stay, no matter what your budget.

We found several pet-friendly hotels in the Pittsburgh area, starting at $55 per night.

The site also offers tips for traveling with pets, including ways to calm your pet’s uneasy stomach while you’re away.

Keep in mind that some hotels charge an extra fee if you bring your pet with you. The added fee covers things like damage to the room or hotel grounds, and is often non-refundable.
