Your dog loves their Rover sitter, but sometimes you want to plan a special trip to bring along Fido. Our friends at Tripping.com share some tips about how to make the most of your pup-centric vacation, including scoping out dog friendly locations and utilizing Rover’s nationwide network of sitters while you’re there.
Planning a vacation with your best friend? Does that best friend happen to have fluffy fur and love the beach and/or strolls in the park? If you’re looking to bring your dog pal with you on your next vacation you’ll likely want to go somewhere known for pet friendly travel. Here is a lineup of some of the top U.S. destinations for pet owners!
Carmel, CA is one of most dog-friendly destinations worldwide. You’ll likely run out of space on your camera memory card snapping pictures of the white sand beaches and your puppy running in the water unleashed. That’s right, unleashed. Carmel is catered to dog lovers with dog specialty stores, dog art galleries and pet-friendly restaurants. But, when you want to go to that luxury restaurant, let a fellow pet lover from Rover take care of your dog for the night; you can resume beach roaming the next day.
Virginia Beach, VA
Virginia Beach, VA is a great destination for those who want to play outdoors with their pooch. In First Landing State Park, you can find a dog friendly beach and campground. With several dog parks and running trials, this is the perfect place to take your best friend out for some fresh air and bird chasing fun.
Say, however, you are planning on a day trip to the Outer Banks. Book a sitter on Rover so you can head out knowing your bud is in safe hands.
The many dog parks in Portland, OR will make you want to get out and explore the city just to check out all the different spots your dog can run around. From Sellwood Riverfront Park to Thousand Acres Park to Powell Burnett Nature Park, you don’t have to worry about pulling on a leash because leashes aren’t required! Already known for being a liberal location, Portland is always open to new visitors, especially furry ones. Ah, but you want to go out for the night, so Rover to the rescue. Hit the bars and don’t worry, your puppy will be having just as much fun as you are!
San Diego, CA
If you want to check out a destination that has a beach completely dedicated to your dog, you must get to San Diego, CA. Dog Beach at Ocean Beach will definitely get your buddy his fill of running around in sand, splashing in the water, and making lots of new friends. Later, when you stroll the streets, you’ll be surrounded by a friendly crowd of dog lovers. But what to do when the beach is dog-friendly, but the amazing rental you found is not? No fear! You can live in your luxury rental AND have a great time with your dog during the day when you pick him up from his/her Rover sitter.
