For the most part, I leave my dog with my parents or close friends when I travel. However, on a long trip from NY to FL I searched the internet for dog-friendly hotels and found a few to be reasonably priced. Nice to have your dog with you when traveling if possible.

I'm not a dog person, really, but I'm a sucker for a "feel good" Movie. I think my favorite dog movie would have to be Benji. I must have seen it 50 times when I was a kid.

I love all animals! My favorite dog movie is probably...The Adventures of Milo and Otis! =) I've seen previews for this movie and it looks very cute.

I've boarded my pup recently but only because family didn't want animals in the house. Plus, my friends had enough on their plates without have to look after a newly housebroken pup without fair warning and a slow introduction process. Now that Lily's housebroken and fully vocal about going outside, I may ask a friend or two if the need arises this year. I wouldn't board again without sterling referrals.

We wish we could take our dogs with us when we go on trips, but that's not always possible. For short trips my mom will watch them, but when we go for longer trips they are lucky enough to stay at University of Doglando. They love it's their second home.

I raise assistance dogs for people in wheelchairs, hearing, and seizures. The dogs, we are on #4 now, get to go everywhere with us, planes, trains, and hotels, as well as into the movies. We saw you guys at Marley and Me at Waterford last weekend. We'd love to get to go, thx.

Well I am not a movie person at all... I Know I Know! Can't tell you the last time I went to watch a movie, (because if I did, I fell asleep during the previews!)

BUT..... I am going to go watch Marley and Me, and Hotel For Dogs. Then I will let you know which one is my favorite.

I agree... finding a place to board your dog is a very difficult challenge. Not to brag about Doglando, but it is why we have created the best solution at Doglando.

But for those looking to travel with their dogs, here are two really cool resources. I was introduced to the second one recently by our visiting dog Auri, all the way from Columbia. His mum gave it to me as a present, and I have been going through it bit by bit... its really good if you do a lot of traveling with your dogs.
