It’s a short but tasty Chloe’s Clicks this time — appropriate as we head into Thanksgiving (here at Dog Jaunt world HQ, Thanksgiving is a week-long event). We start with food, and specifically a post from Dog Gone Seattle about Sully’s Snowgoose Saloon, in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood of Seattle. We’ve been to Norm’s, a dog-friendly pub in the Fremont neighborhood, but we haven’t yet been to Sully’s — and that clearly has to change.
And then we turn to walking, … Read more
Oh, it’s a mixed bag this week. I can point you to a totally charming story about dogs (and cats) cleverly using Russian and British public transit to visit favorite food sources — but I also have to tell you about an unpleasant incident on a London Midland train, where a passenger and her West Highland White Terrier were both bitten by “a small terrier” belonging to another passenger. Please note, by the way, that London Midland runs trains “throughout the … Read more
“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
This week’s collection of dog travel links includes last week’s collection — there weren’t enough for a post last weekend, but now there are several good things to tell you about, starting with some fine Halloween photos from the Black Dog Bar on Cedar Key, Florida. (I once spent a really wonderful Christmas on Cedar Key, a tiny island on Florida’s Gulf Coast — we stayed at the Harbour Master Suites, which are not dog-friendly, but here’s a list from … 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
Last week I told you about maps4pets.com, a site that hooks you up with pet-friendly places to stay in the U.K., and this week I learned about another feature of the site: When you click on “Pet Friendly Accommodation” in the menu bar, you bring up not only a map but also a “featured accommodation” button. Right now, the featured property is the gloriously luxurious Milestone Hotel in London — you really have to read the post, because if I … Read more

There are eight “royal parks” in London — parks which are officially the hereditary possessions of the Crown but to which the public is given access. They are (in alphabetical order): Bushy Park, Green Park, Greenwich Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Regent’s Park, Richmond Park, and St. James’s Park. Dogs are allowed in all of the royal parks; in some parts of the parks, however, dogs are either not allowed or need to be on a … Read more

Getting to London with a small dog isn’t easy (though the PETS scheme has certainly made it easier), but once you’re there, you’ll be able to take your dog on all forms of public transit. The types of transit included under Transport for London‘s umbrella include the Underground (“tube”), buses, the Docklands Light Railway (“DLR”), river boats, the tram, and the London Overground rail system.
Dogs, either on leashes or in a carrier, are allowed on … Read more
Zipcar operates a membership-based car-sharing service in over fifty cities in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Though the company makes mistakes (hello? pulled out of L.A.??), the car-sharing concept is terrific. Zipcar originally banned pets from its cars, but its current pet policy is sensible:
We understand that Fido and Tigger need to go to the vet on occasion. Pets are only allowed into Zipcars in locked pet carriers and members are responsible for the removal of any residual … Read more
