Chloe’s Clicks and Big News: The best dog travel links (Blog II Newzletter edition!)

Usually, the subtitle for a Chloe’s Clicks is “this week’s best dog travel links,” but let’s be honest — that “week” gets awfully long sometimes. Sometimes it turns into something that looks a lot like a month, in fact. So I looked Chloe in the eye (which she hates, you know, because she’s a polite dog) and asked, why not turn the Clicks into the backbone of something even better? Why not make them part of a regular newsletter instead?  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

It’s just a glorious day here in the Pacific Northwest, and, fittingly, this week’s clicks are a bouquet of cheer and inspiration. The first one is from the PNW, in fact — Go Pet Friendly hosted a great guest post about staying at the former officers’ quarters of Fort Worden, just outside Port Townsend, a drive and a ferry ride away from Seattle (remember the movie An Officer and a Gentleman? yep, that’s the place). Four of the little houses  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

Too many weeks have gone by, and the heap of pet travel links is spilling onto the floor. Time to get to work:

The oldest link in the stack is also the saddest. Blogger Helen Fazio, who writes Travels With My Dog, posted a cautionary tale about a friend’s dog, a retractable leash, and a really horrible death. Not too long ago, I wrote a quick post on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page about a similar near-miss I had just seen at  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

“This week” is a bit of a fiction, I know, given that the oldest link in here is dated January 25, but a more accurate headline wouldn’t be nearly so catchy. The link is certainly attention-grabbing: Australia turns out to be darned pet-unfriendly in many ways, but the Sunshine Coast Daily reports that the Sunshine Coast Council (representing a large urban area north of Brisbane) recently decided to let local café owners choose whether to allow dogs to join diners in  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This, um, month’s best dog travel links

Holy cats, this Chloe’s Clicks is way overdue! I’ll just plunge in with the oldest link in the collection, a post about a private jet company in the U.K. that invites your pet to join you in the main cabin. On the plus side: Your pet’s with you in the main cabin, and she has her “very own leather-upholstered seat, strapped in for safety, all while enjoying a window view.” On the minus side: If you have to ask, you  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

It’s a short but tasty Chloe’s Clicks this time — appropriate as we head into Thanksgiving (here at Dog Jaunt world HQ, Thanksgiving is a week-long event). We start with food, and specifically a post from Dog Gone Seattle about Sully’s Snowgoose Saloon, in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood of Seattle. We’ve been to Norm’s, a dog-friendly pub in the Fremont neighborhood, but we haven’t yet been to Sully’s — and that clearly has to change.

And then we turn to walking,  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

Oh, it’s a mixed bag this week. I can point you to a totally charming story about dogs (and cats) cleverly using Russian and British public transit to visit favorite food sources — but I also have to tell you about an unpleasant incident on a London Midland train, where a passenger and her West Highland White Terrier were both bitten by “a small terrier” belonging to another passenger. Please note, by the way, that London Midland runs trains “throughout the  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

This collection of dog travel links is all about destinations, starting with — why not? — the San Francisco Bay Area. Reader Joan pointed me to Dining with Sophie, a site she found useful when she was visiting S.F. recently with her two dogs. Check out its listings of dog-friendly shops and “restaurants that have outdoor seating areas where pets are welcome.”

Dropping south, the Los Angeles Times posted a list of TripAdvisor‘s top-rated pet-friendly properties in the U.S., including B&Bs  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

Another small but choice collection of links this week (well, month, but who’s counting?) — starting with a hoot of a link from reader Chelsea, who rightly thought that I’d be enchanted by an article from the Austrian Times about a hotel offering city dogs “training courses in country life,” including “how to use a chairlift and how to avoid trouble with cows.”

Speaking of hazards, The Bark posted a useful article about the risks to dogs of foxtail grasses, and  … Read more
