The worst thing about traveling when you have a pet is the constant worry about how your furry friend is doing each day you’re gone. It’s a terrible feeling – having to leave a family member home from a trip. There is always a pang of guilt brought on by their big sad eyes and a tilted head, asking why you’re leaving. No more guilt, we say, your pet should be able to enjoy the new experiences, sights, and smells and of course the extra attention from the family. That is why this week we’ve curated a list of places you and pooch can have a great time together.
When three German Shepherds greet you at a retreat, you know your pet will fit right in.
