I have a small but choice selection of dog travel links for you this week. Starting on the East Coast, check out offManhattan‘s list of five dog-friendly NYC bars (in Williamsburg, Long Island City, Brooklyn, Park Slope and Red Hook). Moving briskly westwards, we land in Albuquerque — Robin Soslow, writing for PETA Prime, reports (after a visit with Petunia, her pit bull) that the city is packed with dog-friendly activities and eateries. Another hop, and we’re on the West … Read more

This week’s collection starts with a link from Santos L Halper about the logistics of traveling with a crated dog from Vancouver, B.C. to Paris. I love the details, and I love knowing (from an e-mail I received) that Santos the whippet is now investigating Paris’s parks. An early report: “Carousel de Louvre has been the best for a runner like me. Parc des Buttes Chaumont was a bust (too hilly). Hope to get to the Bois de Vincennes soon.”

I have just a handful of dog travel links for you this week — let’s start with The 50th Plate, which was featured last week too (remember the Corgis on the beach at Carmel?). This week, I loved author Sherry’s post about the dog-friendly Carmel Valley Ranch Resort, a place I’ve been eying for a while, as well as other Carmel-area attractions that welcome dogs.
Another reprise from last week’s Chloe’s Clicks? Fido Factor, which visited most of the Russian River … Read more
Happy New Year, friends! On a looking-forward day like today, I’m looking back at last week, at posts like this one from Fido Friendly‘s blog, written by Helen Fazio (who’s also guest-posted on Dog Jaunt). She and Raja, her Shih Tzu, describe a couple of dog-friendly winter vacation options — in Mt. Tremblant, Canada (not far from Montreal) and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Take a look, too, at the guest post on All Things Dog Blog by Fido Friendly‘s Carol … Read more
I have two weeks’ worth of dog travel links to tell you about, so sit down, shut up and hang on, as the bumper sticker says. This time of year, it’s all about the winter getaways, starting with a petswelcome.com post about dog-friendly hotels in Miami, Vermont and Monterey, and another post from the same folks about dog-friendly things to do in beautiful Santa Barbara. Kim Swidler, from timesunion.com, wrote a quick note about the Kiawah Island Golf Resort (located just south … Read more
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
When my husband told me he’d be going to a conference this fall at the beautiful and historic Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, CA (just across the bay from San Diego), I rushed to the phone to make reservations. Late October in San Diego? Sign me up!
I must have called “The Del” before, because I wasn’t actually surprised to learn that the conference location is not pet-friendly. I was surprised, however, … Read more
I can’t think of a good way to organize this week’s batch of links, so I’ll plunge in willy-nilly. Let’s start in Monterey, CA, purely because I got married there (at the Aquarium, which is not pet-friendly). Petswelcome.com posted an overview of things to do and places to eat in Monterey, including a dog-friendly whale watch cruise. Pugs and Lilacs reports that not too far away, in Palo Alto, dogs are welcome at the new branch of Books, Inc., located … Read more
This week it’s all about fun places to visit with your dog! Let’s start inland, with a quick article from Doug Gelbert about taking your dog to the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico — I particularly like his suggestion of going for a night hike when the moon is full.
Thumbs up for sand, you say, but make it coastal. Smart Poodle Publishing has a dog-friendly beach suggestion for Hollywood, FL, along with some good photos, and Beach Lovers Guide … Read more
Last September I told you about Bed & Breakfast Inns Online, a database of B&Bs in the U.S. that you can search for pet-friendly properties. Since then, I’ve come across three other sites you should know about:
California Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns (www.cabbi.com) — This site focuses (surprise!) on B&Bs in California. To identify dog-friendly inns, click on “Advanced Search” in the orange square. Select the region you’re interested in (and the city, if you have one in mind) … Read more
