Just a few links for you this week, but they’re all worth a click — starting with a SmartMoney article about how pet travel is a big business, and growing (fair enough, and I enjoyed the details about the author’s trip to Portland, OR with Minnie, a Border Collie/Papillon mix, but have any of you ever encountered “horrified looks from fellow [plane] passengers”? Anyone? I get either oblivious, mildly curious, or besottedly enthusiastic). The last paragraphs of the SmartMoney article … Read more

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
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
This week led off with a bunch of lists. Huffington Post published a list of dog-friendly restaurants and hotels in Los Angeles; Sunset Magazine published a list of ten dog-friendly vacation ideas in the western United States (including Tucson, the San Juan Islands, Coronado Island, the Oregon coast, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Los Angeles, and a Walla Walla winery); and Yak & Natter reported on their visit to four of Britain’s ten best dog-friendly beaches.
In other news, Sign On San Diego published an … Read more
Let’s start this week — why not? — in Massachusetts. Fido Loves posted an enthusiastic report about the dog-friendly beaches at Brant Rock (southeast of Boston, near Duxbury), and the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem proved it’s dog-friendly with pix of a visiting pair of Schipperkes.
Heading south, ClubPlanet described the five best pet-friendly bars in New York City — how helpful that would have been two weeks ago, when Chloe and I could both have used a drink or three — … Read more
This week’s Chloe’s Clicks is late (we were on a plane yesterday!) but packed with good stuff. Here goes:
Why not lead off with the most controversial topic? Go Pet Friendly posted a two-part article this week summarizing and responding to a wealth of comments people wrote about dog-friendly restaurants (or, more accurately, restaurants that allow dogs to join their owners on patios and at outside seating). The comments, as always, ran the gamut from … Read more
I just got my copy of the August 2009 Sunset Magazine, and was delighted to see that it includes a great article listing “Our 10 favorite dog-friendly spots for canine quality time.” Some I already knew about — we live near Orcas Island, and used to live near Carmel, CA — but even in those two locations, Sunset found a couple of beaches and a resort that we need to try. The other locations are Denver, Coronado, Los Angeles, Tucson, … Read more
