    Just wondering how people with house ducks go on vacation? I'm assuming the duck is imprinted on you, or extremely attached, so how would you go away to a hotel for a week or something?

    We don't go on vacation, lol. Not because our ducks have imprinted on us, I just don't want to leave them in someone's care[​IMG]

    Just wondering if anyone TAKES them on vacation or travels with them in general.

    We are lucky enough to have very responsible neighbors who come twice a day to let them out, feed, change pool & drinking water and lock up at night. :)

    Yes you are. Unfortunately for me all of our 'neighbors' are my DH's brothers and they don't think of them as pets.

    There are some folks who pack the ducks up, also, and make it a family road trip - there are pet friendly motels.

    I went away with mine for the fist time this weekend (3 days). Used an old XL dog crate for housing, smaller version bowls (dog bowls) & puppy pads (I use these regularly). The car ride was not bad, 2 hours. She rode in the car freely, first 5 minutes were interesting. I was in the passenger seat, she was on the floor with her baby (a moose dog toy). I ended up putting a sheet in the glove box to make a curtain, she was obsessed with the tree tops flying by. She finally settled down after 20 minutes, tucked her bill in her wings & slept with one eye open. LOL. I didn't take any pictures but I do have one of her on her the couch napping.

    She is a call duck, Peep. She is a good flyer now so I will be playing around with a harness soon. I also have a diaper on its way. She follows me from room to room. Next time we will do both duck & dog in the car! Fingers crossed.
