Hotel Accommodations:

While staying in lodging you will either have you pet in your room with you, or coordinated for boarding at the pet care center if staying at DHL in Yongsan. Be sure to plan for food, water, and bathroom breaks.

The installations have many walking trails and parks that can make for a great way for Soldiers and families to get out and acclimate. This also serves to get your pet acclimated as well.
