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

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.

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