The 2018 Phoenix Lexus Pet Safety event was the first time in my five year blogging career that I got to bring two of my loves – cars and dogs – together for one amazing cause. Presented by A Girl’s Guide to Cars, this special event was hosted at Earnhardt Lexus to teach pet parents about car safety for dogs and cats. In attendance to teach us all about proper pet restraint in vehicles were two incredible representatives from Sleepypod! I was truly in my element, as not only do I enjoy focusing on traveling with Wynston, but my passion for cars stems from when I was a child. I just wish I could attend the next event 😉 It was too much fun for Wynston and I! I hope you’ll enjoy my photos and some interesting facts that I learned.
You all know that traveling with Wynston is my favorite hobby! Whether I’m heading out on the road or sky, I always have Wynston in tow. Traveling is much more fun with a canine companion! Something that I preach when traveling with my boy is safety, especially in the car. I’ve written several blog posts about traveling with dogs, but now we get to be a part of a first hand pet travel safety event at Earnhardt Lexus! The best part? You have the opportunity to join us, Sleepypod and A Girl’s Guide to Cars at the Earnhardt Lexus dealership on December 1, 2018 to learn more about the importance of pet travel safety. Plus, enter to win an amazing Sleepypod prize package!
Thanksgiving and Christmas are the busiest travel holidays of the year. This is no surprise, but a statistic that is changing is how many people travel with their pets. The percentage has drastically increased in the last decade. With that being said, up next in our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents blog series is holiday pet travel tips. Whether you’re bringing your dog to visit family or you have to leave them at a dog boarding facility, I have some useful tips and advice for you!
I never travel without Wynston. He’s always by my side, and in the future I have plans to be traveling with him full time. For now I’m currently living in Arizona where I’m used to having constant access to dog-friendly businesses such as stores, restaurants, parks or popular tourist attractions. In your local area you may know which places welcome dogs and which don’t, but what about when you travel? I’ve learned first hand how to seek out dog-friendly establishments wherever I’m at. I won’t leave Wynston behind at a hotel, so I take him everywhere. Now I’ve come up with a helpful list of 6 ways to find dog-friendly places when you travel.
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!
