This past summer was Lucy's first car trip. We
traveled from Dallas, Texas to North Carolina. After the first
night she did really well. We stopped every 2-3 hours to let
Lucy romp, drink some water and go to the bathroom. After the
first day, Lucy made sure she was first into the car. Lucy is a
I WISH DOGS WERE ALLOWED IN RESTAURANTS, MOVIE
THEATERS,FITNESS CENTERS, AND MORE HOTELS. DOGS ARE SUCH A PART
OF US AND SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BE WITH US EVERYWHERE WE GO.
Beau loves to go to hotels!! In Overland Park,
Ka. The pear Tree Inn was very good--they even said he could go
to the breakfast room.
My dogs loves to travel...we spend at least an
hour or two every weekend on long meandering country drives;
generally enroute to a lake or park or some place where we can
go hiking and when ever we get the chance some place which might
offer a swimming hole for my dogs too. In order to make it
through the week until the weekends adventure, my lab needs to
go somewhere each day--even it is tagging along while we run a
video back to the video store or to the bank or whatever. She
loves to ride and when she is upset or pent up or anxious or
anything--she is soothed by being taken on a car ride. However,
our great dane enjoys the weekend adventures yet still just
simply cruising about town is not much of a thrill for her
either. However, she insists on going as she wants to do
whatever the lab gets to do.
The only time our pets stay in a kennel is when
there is no possbile way to take them with us, like a cruise. We
have 1 kennel we use and drive almost an hour to get
there.....it's worth it to make sure they are taken care of
We have found many dog friendly places to stay.
We have 3 dogs a JRT mix, Labrador and Great Dane. Some times we
plan our trips to a certian area that is dog friendly.
I so appreciate of your website! When we had to
go to New York for buisiness we found our hotel (one owned by
the Hartz Pet Company) The Soho Grand, through your website
which made our decision to bring our incredible, stupendously
amazing dog with us so much easier! We have also signed up with
Companion Air (also from your website)Thank you again for making
travel with our sweet dog so much easier.P.S.I think there
should be a listing for all the doggie needs such as grooming,
pet stores, doggie day care, for each city. Just a thought.Keep
up the great work!
While we love traveling with our dog, and have
done so since she was a puppy, we found that it is more
difficult to take spontaneous trips with our dog. We need to
plan ahead so that we can more easily find accommodations for
our "family" (my husband, myself and our dog Meeko).
Otherwise, we find ourselves encircling the city for a couple of
hours until we find dog-friendly accommodations.
I love road trips with my dogs, and would love to
travel by air with them, also, but the fact that they would have
to be in cargo doesn't allow that possibility (my air flight is
My only problem in traveling overnight with my
pup is when I go to my sister's. They aren't that
"dog-minded" and she has to stay in her crate the
entire time we're there. Takes a lot of the fun out of the trip.
My daughter and I took our 2 dogs on a Canadian
Vacation this summer for 2 weeks, we found Canada to be very dog
friendly, and were never turned away at any hotel we inquired
We actually do a lot of camping and usually stay
at a state or national park when pets are allowed. Information
of this type would be most appreciated! Thanks
My dog is a great traveler. He is definitely an
ambassador for all canines. He is super well behaved and
impresses all who meet him with his good manners and sweet
disposition. My husband and I are very lucky!!
I find this site very useful for locating out of
town hotels that accept dogs. Our dog has never destroyed
anything in a hotel room - and most hotels are very accepting of
Our Yellow Lab has been travelling with us since
we got him. We take him on every vacation and recently arrived
home after a 3 week roadtrip through California, Nevada, Utah,
Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Vacations are much more fun when the
whole family is together!
Your website is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!Please do not
EVER dissapear .... we depend on you EVERY DAY!Thanks!
Traveling with our dogs is always great!!
