Like to travel with Fido?  We do!  Cello, Hooch, and Lager will go with us everywhere we can take them!

A few of my favorite dog-friendly sites to use while traveling are:

(1) BringFido.com :

BringFido.com has been providing pet friendly suggestions since April, 2005.  BringFido.com is a dog travel directory that provides reviews, pet policy information, and online reservations at pet friendly hotels through a partnership with Travelocity. Information is also provided on bed & breakfasts, vacation rentals, and campgrounds that welcome pets in 150 countries worldwide.  BringFido.com also provides information on both airlines and hotel pet policies, as well as recommendations on dog beaches, off-leash parks, outdoor restaurants, and other animal attractions in more than 10,000 cities around the world. Bring Fido has a toll-free number (877-411-FIDO) dog owners can call if they need assistance locating a pet friendly hotel at the next exit on the highway, an animal hospital that’s open at 4am, or the best restaurant in the area that allows dogs to sit at its outdoor tables.

Some of the great reasons to use BringFido.com: 

1. Bring Fido has confirmed the pet policy at every hotel listed on the website, so there won’t be any surprise pet fees, weight limits, or other restrictions when you check-in at the hotel. If you find a pet policy that is no longer accurate, you can contact them, and they will cover any additional pet fee you may have been charged.

2. Bring Fido does not charge a booking fee when you make a reservation. They guarantee that you’re getting the best rate available on all prepaid reservations. If you find a lower rate within 24 hours of booking, they will gladly refund the difference plus an additional $20.

3. You can choose a free gift every time you make a reservation online. Just visit the “freebies” page prior to booking to see the current offers and enter the appropriate gift code when making your reservation. They will ship your free t-shirt, sticker, or other gift as soon as you return home from the trip.

4. Bring Fido donates a portion of all proceeds to numerous pet charities, humane societies, and rescue groups every year. You can help save a homeless pet every time you reserve a hotel room through BringFido.com.

(2)  DogFriendly.com :

DogFriendly.com has been helping humans share adventures with their canine kids since 1998.  They have published world-wide pet travel guides for people with dogs of all sizes & breeds.  City Guides show pet-friendly hotels, attractions, such as tours, stores & historical sites, campgrounds and parks,& off-leash parks, beaches, patio dining, skiing, and more. You can also view free listings, highway guides, the site’s blog, or their dog travel books/ebooks.  You can even join their newsletter to find out about everything dog-friendly!

(3) Gopetfriendly.com:

GoPetFriendly.com has it all … you can search this site by category – such as pet friendly hotels, campgrounds, beaches, and parks… to veterinarians, pet supply stores – and even restaurants and wineries where your pup is welcome to join you.  Everything you’ll want or need while you’re traveling across the US and Canada is here, all in one place.  The site even has a Road Trip Planner that will map your trip and locate all the pet friendly places along the way.  And if that isn’t enough – there is also a collection of approximately 30,000 consistent, detailed pet polices from hotels and campgrounds.

    • Thanks! We use both of these sites constantly, as we travel “around” Cello (and now Hooch) … We only travel if our canine kids can come! And while we are away, we never leave the pups in the camper… Only dog friendly attractions and places for us! Both sites have been pretty reliable, and very helpful… If you look at the “Been There, Done That” posts, you can see Cello has been quite a few places!!
