The current Dog Jaunt giveaway (for a SturdiProducts Incognito tote) is still going strong, but it’s time to send some links your way. We start with a bouquet of articles about the business benefits of being pet-friendly: CBS Baltimore reports that downtown businesses in Frederick, MD have seen positive results from welcoming shoppers with dogs to their stores and restaurant patios (the title mentions “risks,” too, but no actual harm is cited); ditto for downtown L.A. (without any mention of … Read more

This was shaping up to be an epic Chloe’s Clicks last week — and then I missed posting it — so now it’s epic times two. Here we go, in no particular order.
The oldest link in the collection is a report from Laura Stephenson about her post-college road trip from Guatemala to Nicaragua and back — which I include because of its general can-do attitude and because she traveled with her dog Chispa. Also off the beaten track? Zuma’s Paw … Read more
This week’s places-to-go clicks include a couple of posts about dog-friendly beaches (Global Animal provided their picks for the top 10 beaches around the U.S., while MyNorth.com focused on the dog-friendly beaches of Northern Michigan) and, from north of the border, several dog-friendly restaurant patios in Toronto. Two California links also caught my eye — Sonoma Pets has a list of Sonoma County restaurants that welcome dogs to their outdoor dining areas, with a shout-out to a couple of local … Read more

This week’s collection of dog travel links includes last week’s collection — there weren’t enough for a post last weekend, but now there are several good things to tell you about, starting with some fine Halloween photos from the Black Dog Bar on Cedar Key, Florida. (I once spent a really wonderful Christmas on Cedar Key, a tiny island on Florida’s Gulf Coast — we stayed at the Harbour Master Suites, which are not dog-friendly, but here’s a list from … Read more
Just a few links to share with you this week, which is a good thing, because there’s hardly any week left! Slipping in under the wire are a couple of dog-friendly beaches: Gracie’s Bark posted some wonderful pictures of Gracie and her Golden Retriever friend Cali playing at Crane Beach, near Ipswich, MA on the South Coast; and Dugs ‘n’ Pubs highlighted a dog-friendly beach (and a nearby dog-friendly pub) in Gullane, Scotland (about a half hour east of Edinburgh, … Read more
There were too few dog travel links last week to merit an entire Chloe’s Clicks post, so that means that this week’s post will be longer than usual. Let’s start with a handful of good news, bad news posts. The good news includes three posts about dog-friendly cities in the U.S. Two of them, a post from the wonderful ohmidog! and another from the Los Angeles Times, are about Provincetown, on Cape Cod (declared America’s dog-friendliest city last week by … Read more
