Louis Vuitton is a luxury clothing and accessories brand that has been standing out for more than 100 years for the exclusivity and absolute quality of its products. Louis Vuitton was born in 1821, in France in the province of Jura. He moved to Paris where he had an enormous success thanks to his great talent, with which he designed suitcases, luggage and travel gadgets. In 1854 he created his own brand (LV) and his own business, with remarkable success.
Louis Vuitton died, in 1892 leaving over his son Georges Vuitton control of the business.In this stage the company became international, opening stores in important places such as New York, and London.And of course in the Avenue Champs Elysées de Paris.Also patented the successful patterns created by Louis Vuitton, inspired in oriental textures, very typical of the Victorian era. Its most successful design was a flat-bottomed travel suitcase that was lighter and more comfortable than those on the market.
In 1936 George dies and the company is left in charge of his son Gaston. Mr G Vuitton focused on developing products with new raw materials that will work on the impermeability of handbags and dabble the search for new markets like the Asian where he arrived in 1978. The Louis Vuitton Luggage are the most luxurious in the world
After the Second WWII
History of Louis Vuitton: After the Second World War the success between 1945 and 2000 occurred because it had to do with the expansion of the catalogs of fashion accessories of the brand.It was during this time that LV incorporated the leather to its products, bringing to the market now not only travel cases, but also wallets, purses and bags.
Louis Vuitton’s business policy is never to make rebates on its products.The reason behind this decision is that the products maintain the perception of value by their customers.Louis Vuitton is convinced that its products are classic that generate value over time.
Louis Vuitton is a brand that produces luxury clothing and accessories that prints its personal stamp on every item it sells.The company LVHM(Louis Vuitton and Moët Hennessy) is the largest French manufacturer of luxury goods in the world (Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy, Bulgari, Moët & Chandon among 70 other brands) and is chaired by Bernard Arnault.It has representation and sales in more than 60 countries.
Manufacturing of Louis Vuitton
Since the brand’s inception, the methods of artisanalmanufacturing of Louis Vuitton items have changed very little.The characteristic that has always distinguished LV is the value of exclusivity that it offers to its products.The attention to the smallest details in the termination of the products is the reason of its maximum quality.It maintains the value of exclusivity to its products and at the same time fights falsification, because it provides personalization services.In this way the brand provides the aura of distinction with the elegance of always to its customers.It is a brand with a soul.The soul of artisan Louis Vuitton.
History of Louis Vuitton: Anecdote
Anecdote: Drinking Champagne in a glass of water was simply intolerable.And every time she flew in first class she was forced to do it.Unable to continue to endure such an aberration, I entrust Louis Vuitton with a small briefcase to carry two good and beautiful crystal glasses.Thus, each time the stewardess opened a bottle of Möet & Chandon, she could take out her own glassware and enjoy the bubbles in a civilized way.Told by Patrick-Louis Vuitton, great-great-grandson of the founder of the legendary French firm, to the newspaper EL PAIS of Spain.

About 68% of American households, and 85 million families, own a pet. These data are from a survey of the American Pet Products Association(1) . In 2018, $ 62 billion was spent on pets, including more than $ 6.2 billion on services such as accommodation and grooming. Another survey from the same organization says that 37 percent of pet owners take their animals on their trips, compared to 19 percent about 10 years ago. Source: U.S. Travel Association (2).
Websites such as Burkert’s or BringFido.com specialize in identifying pet-friendly hotels.
The travel industry is a big business. In the USA Travel expenses reached $ 898 billion in 2018. And an important part of travel spending is not only for people, but also for their pets. When pet owners travel by road or plane they have only two options:
Take your pet with them to any place.
Another person takes over, rented or not.
These options are not only for tourism or pleasure trips but also for business or other reasons.
How Many People Travel with Pets?: The pet transport business is becoming more prosperous. In the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (3), all the companies that are responsible for the transfer of pets are associated. Many of these companies offer products to meet demand.
Travel Pet Infography

There is also the option to send pets in the cargo hold. Prices can vary from $ 60 to $ 500 depending on the route.

Where do I Take my Pet when I Travel?
If you do not take your dog on a trip with you, you have to resort to some pet complex. To be a pet friendly place, you have to meet at least three conditions
Is there anyone on site 24/7 with physical presence? Not only with a remote camera
How long do dogs have to play? Or what is your entertainment policy ?. They don’t have to be locked in a cage all day
Do you have emergency procedures? Which are?
If a pet is aggressive, fights or bites, what is the procedure to resolve that situation?
Do you have a policy to maintain order?

And how do you travel with pets?: Room Service for Dogs
A detail to keep in mind: many hotels allow pets, but they are not really dog friendly. The Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, California (9) really is, according to the editor of LA Travel. This hotel has no additional charge, regardless of size, weight or race. The hotel is steps away from Huntington Dog Beach, an unrestricted dog beach. The hotel has a pet menu.

Hotels, Airlines, trains and any transport company know that the owner of a pet will be very loyal to an airline or hotel that treats them well. They will talk with their friends, they will come back and stay longer. And also recommend the best services.
Travel & Dining with Dogs
The state of New York converted the Dining with Dogs (10)project into law. This law allows any restaurant in the state to open its outdoor space to dogs. In early 2015, a similar law entered into force in California. Also Tennessee, Maryland and Florida are among the states that have eased restaurant restrictions regarding the admission of pets. .
Beer for Dogs
The Indianapolis Flat 12 Bierwerks brewery(11) allowed dogs in its yard last summer. He also created an alcohol-free beer for dogs made with meat ornaments. California and Florida are the friendliest states with dog food, according to the dogfriendly.com ® website. (12)
By the way, the DogFriendly.com ® website has published pet travel guides worldwide for people with dogs of all sizes and breeds. There are hotel search engines that allow pets. Tourist sites, shops and historical sites, camps, parks. Also strapless parks, beaches, skiing and more. It is a website with a lot of pet friendly information especially in the United States.
Pets Travel by Train
Until 2014 Amtrak(14) not allowed pets (with the exception of service animals) to travel on their trains since the 1970s. He then tested the launch of a pilot program in Illinois. Amtrak decided it was time to try being pet friendly and chose only a few routes. On those routes Amtrak would charge $ 25 for a dog or cat that weighed up to 20 pounds and fit in a carrier under the seat of a pet owner.
According to Amtrak, “about 200 animals have accompanied passengers without a single complaint or incident.” Then the program became permanent a year later. In late 2015, Amtrak announced that pets could also travel with owners on certain routes in the northeast. In February 2016, he announced that pets could travel on most of their long-distance trains for up to seven hours.
Amtrak is now considering transporting larger animals as seasonally checked luggage. This had not been done by Amtrak since 1970.
Towards a Pet Friendly world traveler
We all want to enjoy our pets. We no longer want to leave them at home or in a kennel. That is why years after year more people travel the world (and also at home) with their pets. That is why pet services appear at all times that were previously only reserved to their owners. What we describe today in the blog is just a small sample. We will certainly be expanding it soon. Good luck to you all
