The company's founder, Tara Kain, started DogFriendly.com out of necessity. She loved dogs and loved to travel. In 1990, she began traveling with her large black standard poodle. But it was hard to find places that allowed dogs, especially a large dog. Many times it would take her hours of research to plan a nice weekend or week long getaway. She began to compile a list of dog-friendly places, not only for herself, but also for other dog lovers who enjoyed traveling with their best friends.
In June of 1998, she began DogFriendly.com and focused on listing places that allowed all well-behaved dogs and lodging that did not restrict pets to smoking rooms. Today, DogFriendly.com offers thousands of dog-friendly listings in its FREE online dog travel guides, as well as in its dog travel paperback books. Both the web site and the books list pet-friendly lodging, PLUS pet-friendly attractions, outdoor restaurants, parks, beaches and retail stores.
continues to add more and more places that people
and their best friends can enjoy together. Please visit our main page
