Tucson Tails: Tucson ranks 3rd dog-friendly city, Pricelineby Karyn Zoldan on Apr. 10, 2013, under Animal News, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
According to Priceline.com, Tucson is the 3rd most dog-friendly city in the United States. The cities were ranked according to their number of pet-friendly hotels, off-leash dog parks, and walk-ability.That’s cool. Now pass the dog treats.
Other dog-friendly cities include Albuquerque, NM (#1) and Portland, Ore (#2). You can view the list here.
What Tucson Tails thinks is interesting is that taking your pet on a vacation is a big niche for the travel market. Priceline.com even has a tool that you can use to find dog-friendly hotels & lodging.
I have never taken my greyhounds on a vacation. They don’t like to ride in the car. Girlfriend Greyhound won’t even jump in the car (even for treats). She just stands there shaking so I have to lift her two front paws and then hoist her back paws and push. She can jump out just fine. Here are some car travel tips from the ASPCA. It’s most important to keep your pet restrained.
As for me, I’ll continue to go paws-free but if you travel with your dogs, please leave a comment as to where you go, where you stay, and how you get there.
