The Best Dog-Friendly Vacations

Going on vacation with your dog is a great way to enjoy some quality time together while also getting some travel in. However, finding the right destination can be a challenge. Not all destinations are dog-friendly, and even fewer cater specifically to pet owners. Here are our picks for the best dog-friendly vacation ideas. From beaches to mountains, we’ve got you covered.! So pack your bags and bring along your furry friend – your vacation is about to get a lot more fun. 

I recently adopted my dog. Right now, the dog’s name is Teddy or Bear. I don’t know which name I want to go with yet, but he is the sweetest little brown Pomeranian, and I have been completely obsessed with him. The last thing I want to do is not spend quality time with him. He makes me so happy, and he deserves all the attention because he is just the sweetest little thing, so I don’t want him not to come on vacation with me. That’s not why I didn’t get a dog, but at the same time, I need to fill my travel cup and be able to go and do some of these fun places, so I want to bring him along with me. So I hope this post helps all dog parents that just fully embrace being pet parents.

Road Tripping

Road trips are a great way to explore new places and meet some interesting folks. But before you go, be sure your pup will also enjoy traveling in the car with you! Make certain they’re an anxious dog by checking their temperament – Some pups may do well on long flights or journeys, but others may hate bringing confined into a car, so keep this difference between them in mind when planning ahead for everyone’s comfort level while driving around together.

Also, keep in mind about safety. You’ll want to prepare ahead of time before traveling with your pet. So look for safety belts or restraints that connect to any harnesses or collars, car seats, car mats to secure an area for your pet. 

Lastly, while you’re planning your road trip, look for rest stops or gas stations. You’ll want to plan out bathroom breaks every few hours or so to stretch the legs, potty and stop to get some fresh water. 

While we are talking about planning ahead, make sure lodging on your trips are booked and can accommodate your pet. 

Here are some of my favorite pet friendly hotel chains: 

DoubleTree by Hilton: 120 DoubleTree properties are pet-friendly with a non-refundable fee of $75 per room.

Many pups have sensitive stomachs when exposed too much saltwater which can make them sick easily so always keep an eye out while exploring this beautiful shoreline belonging only yours- go ahead take advantage without worrying about what might happen.
