We will be in booth #619, so please stop by if you’re around! We will be doing a drawing for a free t-shirt and your furry friends are allowed at this event so we will make sure to have plenty of treats on hand for them! We always love these shows because we get to see so many cool new pet products. It’s also fun to see all of the dogs running around!

Spring is right around the corner which means many of you may be thinking Spring Break! But what do you do with your furry friends when you go on vacation? Some people are lucky enough to have friends or family that will take care of their dog. Others have a great doggie day care where they can trust that their canine companion will be safe and happy. However, sometimes it is nice to bring the WHOLE family on vacation and that’s where pet-friendly hotels come in. Many hotels are starting to allow pets in some of their rooms.

Websites such as www.petswelcome.com or www.pethotelsofamerica.com can help you find the perfect hotel for your needs. These websites allow you to search by route to find hotels all along your trip. Some bigger hotel chains, such as Marriott, are also offering pet-friendly rooms. Even search engines, such as Expedia, allow you to narrow your search by hotels that allow pets. This all makes it so much easier for us to travel and bring our dogs along!

Are you going anywhere for Spring Break? Are you bringing your dog along?
