Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day-John Grogan
This is your sign! Bring your fur ball along for the ride. Fortunately, at our headquarters in Dunedin, FL or also known as "Dogedin" around here it's easy to bring your pup to the pub, beach, or you name it! Four paws are more than welcome. Unfortunately, more often than not, a lot of places aren't so dog friendly which can be discouraging when traveling.
This blog is for my travelers who want their best friend by their side for the next adventure. Our fur babies live short, but meaningful lives. The least we can do is show them a little of the world!

For me personally, I like to travel within the sharing economy as it offers more authentic experiences while contributing to locals. But the other great thing about it, is that many rentals have dog friendly options! This has been huge in planning last minuet and more affordable trips when bringing the pup. Not to mention many places have YARDS! Sometimes staying in hotels can be difficult with your furry friend with strange noises, people, and no space to zoom out. The nice thing about your private rental is that your pup can relax too. I mean it's their vacation too, right?
