How Pet Friendly is YOUR Community?

On our PAWS Across Canada Tour, we found lots of things that make a community a little more pet friendly, like:

Pet Friendly Hotels
Mere Hotel Winnipeg

 And great places to walk your dogs close to the pet friendly hotel:

And garbage cans and bags so you can pick up after your pets:

Although we always travel with our Original Poop Bags


When you are looking to travel with your pets, here are a few things to check out in your planning:
  1. Pet Friendly Hotels (with easy access to outside, garbage cans and well lit areas to walk your dog)
  2. Pet friendly rest stops... your dogs need to get out and stretch just like you.
  3. Communities that have activities you can do with your pet such as walking trails, parks, dog parks, pet events.
  4. Learn where the closest vet and animal clinic are when you visit a community.
  5. Make sure that your dog tags and chips have current and up to date information.
  6. Have a current photo (headshot) of your pet on your cell phone.
Just a few tips on traveling with your pets.

Mom did a survey with pet families about what they want in relation to pet friendly travel.  There was PAWSome feedback.  She'll be doing a webinar soon to reveal the results.

To those communities working hard to be pet friendly.... we applaud you!


It makes a big difference for us and our humans!

  1. I am going to be moving across the country next month. It is going to take me a couple of days to get to my new home. I am going to be staying in hotels, but I need to make sure that they are pet friendly because my dog is traveling with me. I'm sure that I will be able to find plenty of pet friendly hotels during my drive.
