Let’s be honest. I started collecting these links on September 2, so this is really an entire month’s collection. By now it’s old news that TripAdvisor posted a list of its ten most pet-friendly hotels in the U.S. — the algorithm is a little sketchy (“accommodations which have four or more circles out of five on TripAdvisor, and feature the greatest number of TripAdvisor traveler comments describing them as pet- or dog-friendly”), but I loved learning about The Paw House … Read more

This week’s collection of dog travel links is a nicely-balanced blend of adventure and caution. On the adventure side, check out youdidwhatwithyourwiener‘s what-the-hell-why-not post about buying a dog trailer and taking it and the dogs for an inaugural bike ride from Mukilteo (just north of Seattle) to Langley (on the east side of Whidbey Island). The trip sounds like a total hoot — Langley was delightfully dog-friendly, and the dog trailer was a brilliant idea, and you have to read … Read more
It’s spring for sure in the Washington D.C. area, where my friends took this picture of their son Paul heading out for a bike ride with Tip, their Papillon:
I’d love to see how you and your pup spent your time together this week — please post your photos on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page so we can all see them!
Today’s photos were sent to me by reader Meg, who lives in Geneva, Switzerland with Cooper, her five month-old Jack Russell Terrier puppy.
This one’s a tiny bit blurry, but I’m so glad Meg sent it — isn’t it wonderful?!

The first link I gathered this past week, courtesy of @pettravelcom, was an article from The Philadelphia Inquirer about how the author connected with Italians on a recent visit by photographing their dogs. It really speaks to me — we added Chloe to our lives because we wanted pet company on our travels, but I’ve since learned that traveling with her is a wonderful way to meet people, and to meet them at their unguarded best.
The links that followed were … Read more
This is a guest post from Kim Garrison, a friend I met through Twitter (follow her at @kimhalligan1 or @jerseyshoredogs). Kim is the guardian of six (6) dogs, including three Lab mixes (mom Sequel and two of her pups, Stanley and Stella), two Japanese Chins (Oscar and Spencer), and Olive the Chihuahua. Kim bikes with some of her dogs, including the Japanese Chins, which are about the same size as Chloe — so of … Read more
Today’s picture was taken last November in Rome’s Piazza del Popolo. In this shot, dog and owner both look businesslike — but photographer Ed Yourdon says that the pair circled the piazza several times, enjoying a Sunday outing.

This week’s photo was taken nearly two years ago in Lu Jia Zui, the financial district of Shanghai. Love it — what elegance! (I’m not convinced that the leash looped around the bike’s handlebars would do much in an emergency, but at least the owner was trying….)

It’s probably too soon to be thinking about spring, but yesterday was a truly glorious day in Seattle — one that called out for a bike and, yes, a small dog. Last spring, I wrote a post about several bike carriers (and, alternatively, carrying your dog in a backpack carrier). One of the most intriguing carriers I found was the WalkyBasket, but I couldn’t find a supplier that would send one to the U.S. Now it’s available (I bought ours … Read more
Dog Jaunt’s giveaway of an Outward Hound backpack carrier is still underway, so I have backpacks on my mind. This week’s photo charms me, not only because the guy loves his dog enough to bring him biking, but also because the dog is wearing Doggles dog goggles (love ’em!), AND also because the owner has kluged up a regular backpack with carabiners and a short strap (look closely) to create a tether-like restraint that passes through his dog’s harness. Ingenious! … Read more
