Treats created by Michelin-starred French chef Michel Roux are just part of the luxury offered to pets traveling on VistaJet flights.

In addition to gourmet treats, pets will be able to eat a well-balanced meal, and will receive special toys and a comfy sleep mat.


VistaJet is a private jet charter company based in London, England. They have a fleet of over 70 Global and Challenger Bombardier aircraft and operate all over the world.

And they are really pulling out all the stops to make pets and their owners comfortable on flights!

For pets who are unused to flying, the VistaPet program offers "fear of flying courses" to help desensitize your pet to the sights and smells of being on a plane.

The four-week course, offered in partnership with The Dog House, slowly exposes them to the experience of being on a plane so they can get acclimated to it before the big day.

It was also The Dog House that partnered with Chef Roux to create their own line of dog treats that are being served on VistaJet flights.

The tin of treats contains 5 flavors of treats, in various sizes and shapes:

Ostrich with Cherry, Seaweed with Orange, Cheese with Cranberry, Venison with Blueberry, Salmon with Trout.

VistaJet will also make recommendations for pet-friendly accommodations at your destination, or any pet-related service you require. Doggy spa day, anyone?

They even offer flower essences to mix with pets' water!

Above all, the VistaPet program offers the opportunity for pets to fly in the cabin with their owners, instead of being in the cargo bay in a carrier for the entirety of the flight.

VistaJet says that pets must be secured in a carrier or on a leash during takeoff and landing, but are free to roam for the rest of the flight.

VistaJet shared a promotional video of what you can expect for your pet, and were just a bit jealous.



This luxury is a far cry from the usual flight experience for pets on commercial airlines. Many pets have to be crated for the entire journey and are transported in the plane's cargo hold instead of the cabin.

If only the major airlInes would offer something similar to VistaJet'sprogram, flying would be a whole lot less stressful for pets and owners alike!

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
