Dog Laying On A Bed

A traveler’s guide exclusively for dog owners has released a list of 200 pet-friendly hotels, parks, museums and restaurants throughout Canada and the US for your canine travel companion.

Favorites on include Carmel City Beach in California where the off-leash policy allows dogs to frolick freely alongside sunbathers, as well as Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.

The guide also offers readers a list of dog-friendly restaurants including Jordan Pond House in Maine, as well as shopping centers where dogs are welcome such as Denver’s Aspen Grove Shopping Center, and Otay Ranch Shopping Center in San Diego, which comes complete with its own dog park.

Hotels that offer everything from pet sitting services to welcome baskets and ‘doggy room service’ are also listed. Some of the major hotel chains that offer pet-friendly accommodations, meanwhile, include the Best Western and the Marriott.
