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

It’s just a glorious day here in the Pacific Northwest, and, fittingly, this week’s clicks are a bouquet of cheer and inspiration. The first one is from the PNW, in fact — Go Pet Friendly hosted a great guest post about staying at the former officers’ quarters of Fort Worden, just outside Port Townsend, a drive and a ferry ride away from Seattle (remember the movie An Officer and a Gentleman? yep, that’s the place). Four of the little houses  … Read more

Readers’ tips for in-town stuff to do with your dog

This post is distilled from a bunch of wonderful comments that Dog Jaunt readers left as entries in a recent giveaway — you can find them there, of course, but I feared they’d get lost as the memory of the giveaway dims. So here they are, clumped geographically for your convenience:

West Coast

Albany, CA: “We are regulars at Albany Bulb just north of Berkeley — there’s amazing ever-changing art and at one point you’re surrounded by water on three sides, it’s  … Read more

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

The current Dog Jaunt giveaway (for a SturdiProducts Incognito tote) is still going strong, but it’s time to send some links your way. We start with a bouquet of articles about the business benefits of being pet-friendly: CBS Baltimore reports that downtown businesses in Frederick, MD have seen positive results from welcoming shoppers with dogs to their stores and restaurant patios (the title mentions “risks,” too, but no actual harm is cited); ditto for downtown L.A. (without any mention of  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s (and last week’s too!) best dog travel links

I have such a backlog of dog travel links for you (two weeks’ worth, plus a little!) that the only thing to do is tell you about them in the order they reached me — starting with the wonderful Maggie in Venice, mentioned in previous Chloe’s Clicks. The Imbodens have returned to Venice with Maggie, their Bearded Collie, and their recent posts include a view of their new home, a post about the logistics of flying with Maggie from New  … Read more

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

Just a few links to share with you this week, which is a good thing, because there’s hardly any week left! Slipping in under the wire are a couple of dog-friendly beaches: Gracie’s Bark posted some wonderful pictures of Gracie and her Golden Retriever friend Cali playing at Crane Beach, near Ipswich, MA on the South Coast; and Dugs ‘n’ Pubs highlighted a dog-friendly beach (and a nearby dog-friendly pub) in Gullane, Scotland (about a half hour east of Edinburgh,  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: Dog travel links we liked this week

My recent posts about our trip last week to Boulder and Denver prompted a blogging friend who lives outside Boulder, CO to add a couple of comments revealing how un-friendly to dogs Boulder really is. I had learned for myself that few Boulder hotels welcome dogs, but Deborah (who writes the great blog Boulder Dog) told me about inadequate local dog parks, and a bizarre no-dogs-allowed policy on Boulder’s famous Pearl Street pedestrian mall. I was in a receptive mood,  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: Dog travel links we liked this week

Writing a blog post on a World Cup weekend is like a tree falling in a forest, but I’m a faithful girl, and there are clicks to tell you about. The most tempting (and that’s saying something — it’s been a good week for dog-friendly links!) is a post from The Inner Workings of a College Graduate about a glorious week the author and her family spent at a dog-friendly beach rental on beautiful North Captiva Island. Great pictures, and  … Read more
