Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

Time for another mighty Chloe’s Clicks — mighty overdue, in fact, which wouldn’t normally be a big problem except that the first link is a lovely collection of suggestions from Have Dog Blog Will Travel for…dog-friendly spring breaks. However, there is absolutely nothing stopping you and your dog from taking another vacation in the San Francisco Bay area, Southern California, Colorado, Utah, or Wisconsin. The Go Pet Friendly Winnebago has left Austin — and while it rolled along the Natchez Trace  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

It’s all about the destinations this week. I’ll start in New England (well, -ish, because the article touches down all over the United States, but it starts in New England) with a PDF from Fido Friendly about ten lovely and dog-friendly B&B inns (when the link comes up, click on the picture to reach the article, in PDF format).

Moving clockwise around the U.S., PetsWelcome.com posted a useful list of fenced dog parks in Raleigh, NC, the Take Paws team visited  … Read more

What a fun bunch of links this week! First up: Two blogs I hadn’t seen before — Raoul’s Travels, featuring Raoul the pug (currently in Paris) and The Vagabond Adventures, featuring Lucie, Lachlan and Bow Wow (currently traveling across Africa for the charity Back to Africa).

Hiking is clearly on people’s minds, because three separate sites posted useful articles this week about hiking with your dog. Check out this interactive map of dog-friendly trails in North America, posted by Ruff Wear’s  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: Dog travel links we liked this week

This week’s Chloe’s Clicks starts with a link that knocked me out. It would never have crossed my mind to ask the Vatican Museum if Chloe could join us in a visit, but intrepid traveler Helen Fazio did just that — and was given permission to see the museum and Sistine Chapel with her Shih Tzu Raja. As Helen says, never be afraid to ask!

A world away from the Vatican, Christina Erb wrote a post for Outside.online about an exciting  … Read more

Off-leash dog parks in Long Beach and Costa Mesa

We spent a few days in Irvine with friends who are U.C. Irvine faculty members, and were spoiled rotten by the UCI faculty neighborhood dog park three blocks from their house. It was blissful — huge, grassy, equipped with ChuckIt throwers and a water fountain (also a picnic table) — but it was also just for UCI folks who have the magic UCI key.

Boy, did we miss it yesterday. We went to dog parks in Long Beach and Costa Mesa,  … Read more

Laguna Beach dog-friendly restaurant: Madison Square Café

We were prepared for rainy and cool, but Southern California shook off its recent weather and presented us with perfection. We celebrated with brunch at Madison Square Café in Laguna Beach, featuring excellent food for humans and the heartiest of welcomes for dogs.

It’s all about Southern California this week — it’s been raining steadily in Seattle, so maybe my subconscious is nudging me towards the sunny south!

The first link is from San Diego’s Convention and Visitor’s Bureau site, which includes an entire section on dog-friendly locations and activities in San Diego. How useful — and rare — is that?! Check out its list of dog-friendly hotels, by neighborhood, and the short but useful lists of dog-friendly restaurants and beaches/parks.
