For years, I’ve been sending Dachshund owners to the Sleepypod Air, an unusually long and low carrier with Sleepypod’s usual great design and quality. And that’s what I did with reader Jenny, who dutifully bought one for Oscar, her Dachshund (followers of Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page will remember that Jenny and Oscar are the co-founders of Cheeky Dog Bakery, based in Dublin, Ireland). Jenny liked the Air, up to a point, but felt that it didn’t give Oscar enough room to turn … Read more

Reader Rafael posted this content on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page, and I immediately asked if I could turn it into a blog post, so it wouldn’t just scroll away into oblivion. I thought there would be many of you who would appreciate hearing how he prepared his pup Chuck Norris to spend extended periods of time in an in-cabin carrier, and how they handled a long international flight together.
Some background: Chuck Norris is a kaninchen Dachshund (slightly smaller than … Read more
This episode of Chloe’s Clicks is long overdue, but I think that just makes it tastier, like giving the lemons more time to infuse the grain alcohol. The oldest link is from Huffington Post, and points you to five dog-friendly hiking trails in and around Los Angeles. Also from Huff Post? A post about three dog-friendly hotels in Portland, OR — I’d add to the list the Heathman Hotel, our favorite, and the funky Ace Hotel.

Reader Lisa sent me this photo of Professor, her Dachshund, in his new large SturdiBag back in October 2011. That’s how desperate the state of my in-box is. I admit my shame only because I love Dachshunds so — my first dog was a standard red smooth-haired Dachshund named Lady (in fact, her full name was Lady Alice of Vincennes, but she only got that when she was very naughty indeed) — and the Professor is a sweetheart:
He’s … 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 know, there’s supposed to be only one winner this week, but the prize was a (heavy) locking leash, and two pups posted travel pictures: Eva, a Papillon, and Sandy, a Golden Retriever. What on earth would Eva do with the leash, if she won? So here’s my solution: Sandy wins the locking leash, and I’ll send Eva a PurrfectPlay.com felted ball (I had two that were new in their packaging, and gave one away a week ago). Congratulations all … Read more
