Dog Jaunt's new pet travel book is now out! Buy it, or learn more about it here. And please review it on Amazon!

Have you left the house this summer with your dog? Prove it, and win!

Every Friday I post a dog travel picture that’s caught my eye — either one that I’ve taken, or one that I’ve found on Flickr. A dog on a Venice barge, a dog in a powerboat, a dog cooling off in a Milwaukee fountain — even a statue of a dog from an Irish castle. And every week I invite you to post your dog travel photos too, to create a weekly photo album of our dogs enjoying themselves. Several faithful readers have answered the call (shout-outs in particular to @SarniaKid and @GoPetFriendly, and their marvelous dogs Francie, Ty and Buster!), but I’m a greedy girl, and I want to see more of your dog travel photos.

So here’s what I’m going to do. Submit a dog travel photo during one of the next two Photo Fridays (tomorrow and July 30). On August 5th, I will randomly choose a winner, who will receive the following prize:Fab Dog warm-weather rainjacket for a medium-sized dog (the jacket measures 17.5″ from the base of the neck to the base of the tail) in my favorite fabric — printed with a map of the NYC metro system. This brand-new jacket (a $38 value) is unlined, so it’s perfect for summer rainstorms, and it folds up into its own storage pocket, so it’s easy to carry and pack.

How to enter

Send me your dog travel photos, using either the Inlinkz linky form I provide or e-mail (the directions for both of these options are provided in my Friday posts). Pet bloggers should consider turning their photo into a post on their own blog, and sending me the link to their post; it’s not required but it will give you the benefit of a link from my blog to yours.

You can respond to tomorrow’s Photo Friday post or to the July 30th post — or to both! Your photos don’t have to be professional-quality, nor do they have to be set in exotic locations, but they should be taken by you and show your dog traveling, or enjoying himself somewhere away from home.


Tomorrow’s Photo Friday post will stop taking submissions at midnight on Wednesday, July 28th. There will be a gap of a day, and then next Friday’s post will take submissions until midnight on Wednesday, August  4th. I will choose a winner randomly, and announce the results in a Dog Jaunt post on Thursday, August 5th.

The fine print

To enter, you must be a U.S. resident, age 18 or older. Please make sure that the email address you provide is valid (be assured that your email isn’t shared with anyone, and I will not send you email unless you win). Winners must claim their prize within three business days after the date of notification of such prize. A winner’s failure to respond to the prize notification within the specified three business days will be considered a forfeiture of the prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the pool of eligible entries. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, an alternate winner may also be selected from the pool of eligible entries. We will disqualify any entries that we believe are generated by scripts and other automated technology. Winners shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of their prize. Employees, partners and vendors of Dog Jaunt and their immediate family members are not eligible to enter.

    We are always happy to provide our travel pics on #FF (Foto Friday) … contest or not. Your Friday calls for photos is a great opportunity for people who do travel with their pets to show how much fun it is to people who are thinking of traveling with their pets.

  • Isn’t that the best part?! I just love seeing your Ty and Buster, and all the other dogs, traveling with their people and having fun together.

  • Hi, Angie — It’s vexing, I know — and it’s all the more vexing because you and Francie are such great contributors. I went to a pet bloggers’ conference last year (BlogPaws) and, in a seminar about contests and giveaways, asked why so many people restrict their contests/giveaways to the U.S., and the moderator explained that the rules for including Canadian contestants become so complicated and so legally fraught that most people just avoid the issue altogether. I could risk it, I suppose, since who would really care about my little blog — but I’m not a risk-taker, at all, at all.
