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 Golden Retriever.


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's worth it to make sure they are taken care of well.

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 overseas).

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 about.

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 that.

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!!
