Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

“This week” is a bit of a fiction, I know, given that the oldest link in here is dated January 25, but a more accurate headline wouldn’t be nearly so catchy. The link is certainly attention-grabbing: Australia turns out to be darned pet-unfriendly in many ways, but the Sunshine Coast Daily reports that the Sunshine Coast Council (representing a large urban area north of Brisbane) recently decided to let local café owners choose whether to allow dogs to join diners in  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: Last week’s best dog travel links

“Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!” It’s Chloe’s Clicks — on a Tuesday! Being a week and a half late with the dog travel links probably doesn’t qualify as a disaster of biblical proportions, but I surely do like the quote.

In the last bunch of links, I praised Yakima’s new “Wine Doggies” site, designed to help visitors with dogs — this week I’m pleased to report that the Isle of Wight has just published a guide (“Pawprint”)  … Read more

Traveling with a pet dog between the U.S. and Canada: The fine print

Last May, the Take Paws team wrote a really useful post about the requirements for taking your dog (and yourself!) from the United States to Canada, which saves me all kinds of work. I’ll just add that when you’re returning to the U.S., you follow the CDC’s rules, which state (in relevant part) that “Dogs must have a certificate showing they have been vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days prior to entry into the United States.” Please note that  … Read more

Another raw dog food that travels well

You know from past posts that Chloe is a picky eater, but she’s mildly fond of frozen raw dog food (which is a challenge to travel with) and of ZiwiPeak’s air-dried raw food (which travels well). She toyed briefly with Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried raw food, but completely rejected Honest Kitchen’s entire line of dehydrated raw food.

Here’s another product you should consider: Addiction, based in New Zealand, offers a range of dog food products, but the ones I’ve tried on  … Read more

Chloe goes to Paris: Taking dog food to another country

A blogging friend who has traveled abroad with her dogs got me thinking about taking dog food through Customs (“be careful,” she said, “to bring only unopened packages of dog food with you”).

As I’ve mentioned, we’ll be spending a couple of weeks in Paris this fall, and an EU regulation [Commission Regulation (EC) No 745/2004] “permanently prohibits all personal consignments of meat, meat products, milk and milk products from entering the EU.” So I wrote to the French Embassy, and my  … Read more

Feeding a picky dog while traveling: Sending frozen raw dog food ahead

Otherwise trouble-free, Chloe is a very picky eater. After extensive trial and error, we’ve found something she likes:  The raw food from Natural Pet Pantry, a small storefront in White Center, a South Seattle neighborhood. In a pinch, she will also eat Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance rolls of dog food, but I’m not confident that she’d eat it for more than a couple of meals in a row. So today I bought some of her raw  … Read more
