Traveling by public transit (and train) in and around Rome with a pet dog

Put briefly, your pet dog need only be leashed and muzzled to travel on Rome’s public transit, but there is a fee. Broadening the focus beyond Rome, small pets in carriers travel for free on Trenitalia regional and long-distance trains, while there is a fee for larger dogs. We haven’t been back to Rome since Chloe walked (or, rather, wiggled — she was very small) into our lives. I suspect that, as in Paris, the rules provide a general framework for  … Read more

Expansion of Amtrak’s “Pets on Trains Pilot Program”: Or, Chloe’s going to Portland!

After his 20-year snooze in the Catskills, Rip van Winkle’s first spoken words, appropriately for this blog, refer to his beloved pet Wolf: “‘My very dog,’ sighed Rip, ‘has forgotten me!’” Chloe and I have been gone nearly as long, it seems, but we haven’t forgotten you, and you (bless you, Dog Jaunt Nation!) haven’t forgotten us. Thank you for all the comments and travel reports — this is the week that I will start posting them and responding.

Traveling by Berlin public transit with a pet dog

Reader Simone’s reference, in a recent post, to taking Spock, her Cavalier, on Berlin’s subway and buses reminded me that Dog Jaunt has a collection of posts about public transit pet policies, and Berlin needs to be on it.

Berlin’s public transit menu includes rapid transit and commuter trains (U-Bahn and S-Bahn), regional trains (Deutsche Bahn’s Regionalbahn and Regional-Express), trams, buses, and ferries.

The BVG (Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe) operates the U-Bahn, the city’s trams and buses, and much of the ferry system. Small  … Read more

Reader’s report: Under-seat space on a United CRJ-700 regional jet

Reader Mia travels frequently with Callie, her small (9 lb., 12″ tall) Cockapoo, and she generously sends me info that she thinks other travelers with dogs will find useful. This time it’s about the under-seat spaces she encountered on a couple of flights on United’s CRJ-700 planes (here’s a link to a floor plan from SeatGuru, so you can follow along):

“I had the good fortune to travel First Class with Callie in her large SturdiBag on a United  … Read more

Reader’s report: Which seat works best with an in-cabin dog? [US Airways partner flights on CRJ-200 and CRJ-900 aircraft]

Reader Kristen recently traveled on two regional US Airways flights (an Air Wisconsin partner flight and a Piedmont Air partner flight). She posted a report on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page about the under-seat space she found on both CRJ planes, and kindly agreed to let me re-post it here on the blog: “I searched high and low for info on CRJs — I’m happy to share it with others :)”

Just flew US AIR — first a CRJ-200 (Air Wisconsin  … Read more
