I can’t believe out of all the traveling I’ve done with Wynston, especially in the last year, that I haven’t written a post specifically on tips for staying at a hotel with your dog. At one point I was completely new to dog-friendly hotel stays, but now I’m most certainly an expert. So let’s dive right in. These tips are sure to make your first hotel stay with your dog (or upcoming stays) more fun and less stressful!
I’ve been attending pet events with dogs for many years. It’s absolutely one of my favorite things to do. I enjoy pet events because I’m surrounded by other like-minded individuals who are all there for the love of pets. I’ve learned a lot throughout my years of visiting pet events with different dogs, and I’d like to share with you my tips for preparing to attend a pet event with your dog.
It had been six years since I’d been to Las Vegas when I stepped foot into Mandalay Bay for the 2018 SuperZoo event. Vegas isn’t really my style, as I’m not into the night life or drinking. However, I was over-the-top excited to attend SuperZoo, as I’ve always wanted to go. While you’ll see a complete recap of SuperZoo, I decided to create a separate blog post about our stay at the dog-friendly Mandalay Bay. There is a lot to share and talk about!
I don’t travel without Wynston. Actually, I did once, and that was when I took my mom on a cruise as a surprise. But given the true choice, I will not travel without my boy. In fact, one of the reasons I like traveling so much is because Wynston is my travel buddy. Taking him on new adventures and creating memories together is what makes traveling fun for me. If you’re looking to visit a new place with your dog, you’ll obviously want to pick a location that welcomes dogs. Here are some tips on how to choose a dog-friendly vacation destination.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to become envious when I see some of my friends’ social media accounts. Endless picturesque photos of hikes in the mountains, camping under the stars and discovering hidden waterfalls…with a dog by their side. I always sigh out of jealousy with thoughts of, “Man, I want to do those things.” But for some of us it’s just not possible. We have families, full time jobs and budget constraints. Maybe we have physical ailments or don’t have transportation to get there. Personally, I have a bad hip so strenuous physical activity is a BIG no-go for me. I have other animals at home I need to tend to, and I don’t have ANY sort of camping experience. I wouldn’t even know where to begin. So for the rest of us in the real world, I’ve created a list of time and budget-friendly ways that you too can seek adventure with your dog.
