Five Good Tips For Traveling With Your Pup… | Houston Travel Photographer

     Before my pups moved into my house, I lived the single life – no kids, no pets, footloose and fancy free.  The pups changed all that and specifically how I travel now.  Since 2010, I have traveled extensively with my pups, most of the time with just my Lil’ Lucy.   After thousands of miles traveling by automobile, I have come up with a starter list of 5 tips for traveling with your dog.   www.dogfriendly.com is also a great resource site.

Tip 1   Look for hotels that accept Pets – La Quinta is my hotel of choice for the chain hotel with the most welcoming pet policy overall

Tip 5  Look for safe approved spots near hotel entrance/exits where you dog can pee/poo – be aware of your surroundings and if you have to go out at night – tell the front desk clerk
