dog fetchDogs really are man’s best friend, so it’s no surprise that pet-friendly accommodations have become a ‘must’ on a traveler’s check list.

All across the country, dog owners are looking for resorts and activities that provide fun for both themselves and their canine counterparts. In fact, nearly 24 million Americans traveled with their dogs the past three years, according to the U.S. Travel Association.

And it’s not just about hotels allowing pets – it’s about an entire experience. Dog owners especially look for places that have a welcoming environment, including walking trails, parks, special dining menus, and even spa treatments tailored for their four-legged friends. Websites such as Bring Fido  and Dog Friendly have made finding the right spot for you even easier with a full array of travel listings including any additional pet fees and specific pet laws for your destination.
