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

In this week’s Chloe’s Clicks, I included a link to a Washington Post story and video about canine gelato (no eggs, milk or sugar) that’s being sold in Rome (currently experiencing temps in the low 90’s). Neither link — nor any other I could find — included the essential info: What stores are selling the doggie gelato cups? So I asked my friend Jessica Spiegel, a travel writer specializing in all things Italy (and Portland, too! she’s responsible for a … Read more
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
This week’s Chloe’s Clicks comes to you from sunny Florida — to be precise, from inside, looking out at sunny Florida, which is not only sunny but also freaking hot. Note to self: Dream house must have floor-to-ceiling windows, purely for Chloe’s sake.
It’s a small, but choice, collection of links this week, and they’re mostly about food. Atlanta now has an ice … Read more
This was shaping up to be an epic Chloe’s Clicks last week — and then I missed posting it — so now it’s epic times two. Here we go, in no particular order.
The oldest link in the collection is a report from Laura Stephenson about her post-college road trip from Guatemala to Nicaragua and back — which I include because of its general can-do attitude and because she traveled with her dog Chispa. Also off the beaten track? Zuma’s Paw … Read more
This week’s links take you to dog-friendly spots all over the world, introduce you to dog travel writers, and highlight an interesting pet carrier.
Starting in the middle(ish) of the U.S. and spiraling outwards: The Indiana Dunes hosted a helpful guest post with notes about a dog-friendly nature preserve, beach, and restaurants in the Indiana Dunes country (just east of Gary, and Chicago, on the Lake Michigan shore). Fido Friendly suggests visiting Rock City Gardens, in Chattanooga, TN, with your dog (“an enchanted, … Read more
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
What can I say? The holidays got ahead of me this time. Better late than never, though — you wouldn’t want to miss these links.
It’s all about the snow, this time of year, so you won’t be surprised that My Pet News has five pet-friendly ski resorts for you to consider, from Vermont to Wyoming (and then north to Lake Louise). Also consider two inns, one in Connecticut and the other in Ohio: The Interlaken Inn in Lakefield, CT reported that they’ve just … Read more
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
This post was handed to me out of the blue by a wonderful Dog Jaunt reader named Tara, living in Rome. She wrote a shorter version of it in a comment on a Chloe’s Clicks post, and I asked her if she’d mind if I turned her comment into a blog post. No problem, she said, and she gave me a few more details, and…hey presto! A fascinating blog post, with no effort from me. I love Dog Jaunt’s readers.
