Those dashing off to Europe to jet set across the continent no longer have to worry about what to do with their beloved four-legged friends.

Realizing that pet owners were reluctant to leave their animals behind while they vacationed, Eurail.com has announced a partnership with 728 pet care facilities across the world.

The company, which sells European train passes, will be offering People & Pet Packages, where pets in the United States, Canada and Australia will stay in pet accommodations while their owners vacation in Europe.

“More than anything, we want to help people take their dream trip to Europe.

We can make that easier by thinking about their dogs and cats,” said Jeroen de Bruin, Sales & Marketing Director for Eurail.Com in a news release.

Pet Psychologist Faros Ipoll, PhD, said both owners and pets can feel traumatized by long separations.

“The key is to have as much fun planned for the pet as a European holiday will offer the human,” he said.

Eurail.com is asking pet owners to send in photos by May 1 of themselves with their pets. The 10 best photos will receive free accommodations at one of the new pet spas with the purchase of a Eurail Pass.

“It’s an ideal combination: the trip of a lifetime for the human, and a relaxing spa visit for the pet,” de Bruin said.
