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

This week’s collection of dog travel links begins with a post from petswelcome.com describing favorite dog-friendly restaurants in Charlotte (North Carolina), San Francisco, New York City, and Austin (Texas).
Thinking of winter getaways? Fido’s City Guide has suggestions for a cozy visit to the Oregon coast, staying at Canon Beach and shopping in Seaside, and A Brooklyn Dog’s Life visited the dog-friendly Emerson Resort & Spa in the Hudson Valley, about three hours from NYC. If you’re looking for warm, darn … Read more
There were too few dog travel links last week to merit an entire Chloe’s Clicks post, so that means that this week’s post will be longer than usual. Let’s start with a handful of good news, bad news posts. The good news includes three posts about dog-friendly cities in the U.S. Two of them, a post from the wonderful ohmidog! and another from the Los Angeles Times, are about Provincetown, on Cape Cod (declared America’s dog-friendliest city last week by … Read more
It’s hot and muggy in New York right now — if we didn’t have a dog, we’d find a bunch of reasons not to leave the hotel — but even the nearly-perfect Chloe requires at least one walk a day. On the bright side, I’d been looking forward to trying some of the suggested routes in City Walks with Dogs: New York.
You’ve probably seen the City Walks series, published by Chronicle Books — each is a collection of fifty 4″ x … Read more
This week’s Chloe’s Clicks takes you all over the U.S. — in a desperate attempt to impose order on chaos, I’ll move from west to east across the country.
We start in the San Francisco Bay Area, where In Circle Pets spent a day on the Marin side of the Golden Gate bridge, at the dog-friendly Cavallo Point Lodge — a former U.S. Army post converted to a luxurious and eco-friendly destination (here’s Cavallo Point’s pet policy).
There and Back Again spent the … Read more
Lots of links to tell you about this week! Let’s start with Travel with Whippets, coming from an RV somewhere in the U.S., which posted a very positive review of the very dog-friendly Four Paws Kingdom Campground in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, near Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, NC. Good news: “You don’t even have to own an RV to camp here; they also rent little dog-friendly cottages or parked RVs, complete with fenced, gated front porches … Read more
I had heard good things about the Bernal Heights dog park, but nothing could have prepared me for its outrageous, gorgeous views of the City by the Bay (this iPhone picture does not do it justice — from where I was standing when I took it, you can see the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge, then turn around and see the rest of the city).
Bernal Hill is a former … Read more
On the bright side, SFO is an airport that (a) has pet relief areas, and (b) is willing to reveal their locations. They’re on the SFO airport map (look at the interactive map and click on “services” and “Animal Relief Areas”), and upon inquiry you’ll get written directions too. Unfortunately, SFO is a complicated place, so the map isn’t very helpful, and the written directions — well, good effort, but “one is located between Terminal 1 and the International Terminal … Read more
This week’s links are a real grab-bag — all over the map, and lots of different topics, but all fun. Here we go:
Pet Airways brings us not only pet-only flights (now also to Omaha, Atlanta and Phoenix) but also write-ups of pet-friendly activities in areas served by the airline. This one, by guest author Arden Moore, describes a variety of great dog-friendly activities and places in Ventura County, CA.
Farther north on the California Coast, Bay Area Hiker has posted a … Read more
There are several companies providing ferry services across and around the Bay. I’m happy to report that all of them allow small dogs in carriers on board.
The Blue & Gold Fleet, based at Pier 39 in San Francisco, runs shoals of ferries around the Bay. Their routes include sightseeing tours to Angel Island and around the Bay, and regularly-scheduled trips to Tiburon, Sausalito, Alameda/Oakland and Vallejo (here’s a map of their routes). Their (pet) dog policy … Read more
