NYC dog-friendly hotel: Hotel Wales

Hotel Wales (corner of 92nd and Madison)

We first learned about the Hotel Wales in the years B.C. (Before Chloe), from actor friends who always stay there when they visit New York. It’s on the Upper East Side, in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, with great access to Central Park and some of the city’s most wonderful museums. It’s also affordable, which is crucial even for well-established actors. Get yourself on the hotel’s e-mail list, and you’ll be offered really remarkable  … Read more

“Where are dogs allowed to be in Central Park?”

Someone reached Dog Jaunt via this query yesterday, and it’s question I’ll have, too, when I head off to NYC next week for the TBEX bloggers conference. Happily, it’s easily answered, because the Central Park Conservancy, in its wisdom, created Central Park PAWS, whose website is a key part of its mission to keep a dialogue going between the park and the many, many dog owners who love the park.

Look at the Park Guide page for all the details and  … Read more

NYC dog-friendly restaurant: Central Park Le Pain Quotidien

This picture, sent to me last week by New York friends, says it all: The new branch of Le Pain Quotidien, which just opened in the Mineral Springs Pavilion near Central Park’s Sheep Meadow, has a dog-friendly patio. Tears of joy, people!

Sure, it’s a chain — but it’s a darned good chain, not only making praiseworthy efforts to use organic and local ingredients, and build and operate in a responsibly green way,  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: Dog travel links we liked this week

Writing a blog post on a World Cup weekend is like a tree falling in a forest, but I’m a faithful girl, and there are clicks to tell you about. The most tempting (and that’s saying something — it’s been a good week for dog-friendly links!) is a post from The Inner Workings of a College Graduate about a glorious week the author and her family spent at a dog-friendly beach rental on beautiful North Captiva Island. Great pictures, and  … Read more

Newark Liberty Airport Express to NYC with a small dog

Last August I told you that small dogs in carriers are allowed onboard AirTrain Newark, which takes you from Newark Airport to New York’s Penn Station or Trenton (via a connection with NJ Transit) for much less than the cost of a taxi.

Another inexpensive alternative for passengers arriving at Newark is the Newark Liberty Airport Express, a bus that leaves from Terminals A, B and C and takes you to three stops in the city: Port Authority Bus Terminal, Bryant Park  … Read more

Last year I posted a favorable review of a book for RVers traveling with dogs called Woodall’s Camping and RVing with Dogs, so when the Woodall’s site announced that the authors now have a website that allows users to find dog-friendly campgrounds on a map of the U.S., I paid attention. Click on the state you’re interested in for details — and notice that when you do, the left-hand column changes to include links to some useful information, collected under  … Read more

This week’s Chloe’s Clicks takes you all over the U.S. — in a desperate attempt to impose order on chaos, I’ll move from west to east across the country.

We start in the San Francisco Bay Area, where In Circle Pets spent a day on the Marin side of the Golden Gate bridge, at the dog-friendly Cavallo Point Lodge — a former U.S. Army post converted to a luxurious and eco-friendly destination (here’s Cavallo Point’s pet policy).

There and Back Again spent the  … Read more

This week’s Chloe’s Clicks starts with a link that knocked me out. It would never have crossed my mind to ask the Vatican Museum if Chloe could join us in a visit, but intrepid traveler Helen Fazio did just that — and was given permission to see the museum and Sistine Chapel with her Shih Tzu Raja. As Helen says, never be afraid to ask!

A world away from the Vatican, Christina Erb wrote a post for Outside.online about an exciting  … Read more

There’s something for everyone in this week’s Chloe’s Clicks! Let’s start with dog-friendly dining. ZooToo posted a cheerful report about an increase in the number of communities that allow restaurants to welcome dogs to outdoor patios (including Newport, RI and Panama Beach City, FL). Across the country, downtown Santa Cruz business owners are considering a repeal of the current dog ban, in an effort to reap the same benefits that downtown Carmel and Los Gatos merchants are enjoying. The vote  … Read more

Each week is a roll of the dice, of course, as far as interesting pet-friendly links go — this week is heavy on pet-friendly hotels, in the U.S. and abroad.

NileGuide posted a delicious article about eight luxury dog-friendly hotels around the world, from Crested Butte, Colorado to Rome, Italy. A new (to me) blog called Gotta Visit NYC: My New Yorkie Blog is about Yorkies Schmitty and Pudge and pet-friendly fun things to do in New York City — I  … Read more
