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

I relaxed a little too much this weekend, and failed to write my Chloe’s Clicks post yesterday. Never mind — here it is, and it’s a good one.
We begin with a terrific series of posts that Edie Jarolim, blogging at Will My Dog Hate Me?, wrote about her recent flight from Tucson to San Diego (and back, of course) with her dog Frankie. Edie is a wonderful writer, and she handles her issues (anxiety over Frankie) and Frankie’s issues (diabetes, … Read more
This has been an outstanding couple of weeks for dog travel links. Leading the pack is the Take Paws team, which wrote a bunch of great posts, but I want to highlight their post about U.S. national parks (so often not terribly dog-friendly) and national forests (overlooked, but beautiful and more welcoming to dogs) and their post about visiting several dog-friendly Russian River wineries.
Sticking with the West Coast, check out this post from Young Hollywood listing eight dog-friendly places to … Read more
This week’s collection of links is largely about destinations — check out these tempting posts from the Take Paws team about Austin, TX and Prescott, AZ (yes, tempting, though I have to say that Austin is bone-headed for not allowing pet dogs on its public transit); from petswelcome.com about Victoria, B.C.; and from K.S. Brooks and Pish, guest-posting on Have Dog Blog Will Travel, about dog-friendly Arkansas.
The Kimpton Crawl team wrote rapturous posts about the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, MA … Read more
Lordy mercy. The oldest piece in this collection is from April 6, so this post is really a round-up of the best dog travel links from the past month. I have some excellent reasons for the delay, and even some excuses, but I’ll skip all of that and go straight to the good stuff.
Here is that oldest link, which turns out to be a good, thorough review by the bloggers behind According to Gus of the Solvit HoundAbout dog stroller. … Read more
This year we went to a state park in southern Tennessee for my husband’s family’s reunion, but in past years we’ve gone to Joe Wheeler State Park in northwest Alabama. We didn’t have Chloe then, but she would have been welcome in three of the cabins. Highlights of Joe Wheeler’s pet policy? There is a fee of $10 per pet per night, and dogs must be leashed whenever they leave the cabin. Pets are not allowed on the beach or in … Read more
Each state has its own rules about hunting (in the case of migratory fowl, the states cooperate with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to regulate hunting) and the dates of hunting seasons for different prey change a bit from year to year. Here in Washington there’s a spring wild turkey season (in about April and May), bear hunting begins in about August, and then nearly every kind of hunting is available from September to December. Some hunting, however, can … Read more
I want to point those of you who haven’t already found it to hikewithyourdog.com, a great site owned by Cruden Bay Books. Parts of the site focus on the two book series published by CBB (Doggin’ America and A Bark in the Park) and the company’s dog hiking tours. Most of the site, though, offers useful information about hiking, camping and going to the beach with your dog.
It lists U.S. and Canadian parks that welcome dogs, and offers alternatives to parks that ban … Read more
I bought this book partly because I yearn to travel in an RV, if only just once, but largely because there are plenty of dog owners out there who already do. I’m happy to report that it’s a practical and useful handbook that RVers will find very helpful — car- and tent-campers will also find it worth reading, but its main focus is on the logistics of traveling in an RV with one or more pets (the authors have two … Read more
It’s time once again for the nearly-annual reunion of my husband’s family, and this year it is being held at Pickwick Landing State Park. Every Tennessee state park sets aside a limited number of inn rooms, and one cabin per park, where you may stay with a pet, and we reserved a room a couple of months ago (the park service suggests making your reservations “several weeks in advance”).
The Tennessee state park pet policy is set out in detail on … Read more
