UPDATE: Sorry, guys. We've been preoccupied with Buchi's skin problem. A lot's been going on... and I can't seem to find the time to post about it.
We're hoping to find a good dog food for Buchi. Anyone heard of Pro Eagle? I'm choosing between Pro Eagle and Holistic.
There are many different dog friendly locations that are available based on where you want to go with your family and the furry friend. The good news is that there are many more options available than you may believe. Just take a list at the dog friendly hotels from My Pawson to see examples from just one region.

The bad news is that travelling with a dog is not as easy as you may be tempted to believe at first glance. There are many things that have to be considered and it is quite easy to make mistakes. With this in mind, here are some things that few people consider. Consider them before you book your stay at any dog friendly hotel from around the world.
Taking Climate into Account
The climate of the area that you travel to has to be taken into account. For instance, in Orlando humidity is heavy. In this case the pets that have some health conditions or are overweight need to be kept on watch and always remain as hydrated as possible. You need to make sure that the hotel offers AC but you have to know about climate since you want to take the dog for walks. Also, there are sometimes areas that see a lot of people and that is when you need to be sure that you know everything about the potential cool off periods that the dog may require.
Just because a hotel is labeled as being dog friendly does not mean it is friendly with all the dogs. Also, many hotels will ask you to pay a special deposit fee that is non-refundable or refundable, based on circumstances and policies. This is usually necessary in order to cover damages that may be done by your dog during the stay. There are various deposit structures that are presented and the same thing can be said about size limitation regulations. There are many hotels out there that will allow smaller dogs but that will not want to have large breeds stay inside the rooms.
