“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
In fact, this is not breaking news, but it certainly surprised me to learn today that eight more properties in Sin City now welcome guests traveling with dogs. Under the “PetStay” program, launched about a month ago at the three Caesars properties on the list, rooms are set aside for visiting dogs and their owners in seven hotel/casinos on the Strip (Caesars Palace, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Harrahs, the Flamingo, Bally’s and the Imperial Palace) and at the Rio, just off … Read more
Things change, and that’s a fact. By chance, I took a look today (5/10/14) at the Cosmopolitan’s pet policy, and it’s a little different than reported below. Now, the hotel charges a $50/night pet fee, and dogs up to 25 lbs. are welcome (for more details, click on the link).
When I wrote this post in August 2010, it was entitled “Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas: New hotel/casino, not pet-friendly” — I had called the Cosmopolitan, which was slated to open later … Read more
Although it’s possible to find several attractive dog-friendly Las Vegas hotels close to The Strip, until now the only dog-friendly hotel on The Strip was the Four Seasons. Mandalay Bay’s THEhotel has changed that, however, with an announcement that it too will accept dogs as guests (when I called, the customer service rep told me that the designated rooms are in the “800 wing of the 22nd floor”).
The new THEhotel pet policy allows up to two pets (with a combined weight … Read more
Egads! I’m barely squeaking this in before the weekend ends! Let’s start with a fine idea from the folks at Raleigh Pop, who have found a way to make the summer concerts in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park dog-friendly. Good thinking, ladies!
Also in the “good thinking” category? The Hiway Dog program, created by Wisconsin resident Mary Gensen and promising to become a nationwide phenomenon. The idea is that dog-friendly businesses located along highways will post the Hiway Dog symbol on their highway … Read more
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
McCarran International reportedly has three pet relief areas, two outside Terminal 1 and a third outside Terminal 2 (charter and international flights). I found the one on the north end of Terminal 1, and it wasn’t easy. We came in on a Southwest flight that landed at a C gate, and although there must be a chance for C passengers to reach the ticketing area the main stream of traffic from C concourse goes to baggage claim. That’s bad news … Read more
CityCenter is a vast new complex opening shortly in Las Vegas. Located between the Bellagio and the Monte Carlo (and across the street from the Paris), it includes four hotels, condo towers, a huge entertainment and retail center, restaurants, spas, convention space — you name it, it’s got it. It also has its own fire station and its own Cirque du Soleil show (at the Aria, called Viva ELVIS!).
What it doesn’t have, though, are any pet-friendly accommodations. All three hotels … Read more

I’m thrilled to announce that this post is now out-of-date. Since I first wrote it, THEhotel and the Cosmopolitan opened their doors to pet dogs, and today (12/18/10) I learned that eight more hotel/casinos (seven of them on the Strip) have joined them.
This one surprised me, for some reason: There is only one hotel on the Strip that welcomes dogs, and that’s the Four Seasons. It’s located at the south end of the Strip; while it doesn’t … Read more
Loews Hotels & Resorts has fifteen properties sprinkled around the U.S. and two in Canada (Montreal and Quebec City). You’ll spend some money (in the $200-500 range per night), but you’ll be happy — the properties get consistently good ratings on TripAdvisor. And your dog will be happy too, because all of the Loews properties are dog-friendly:
All pets receive their own gifts including a pet tag, bowl and a special treat to start their vacation. Owners receive a … Read more
