What to do with your beloved canine companion while on vacation is always a problem for devoted dog owners. A recent survey in Britain found that the vast majority of British dog owners worry so much about their pets while they’re on vacation that it spoils the experience for them – so much so that many scrap their vacation plans altogether. Most American dog owners would undoubtedly sympathize with this. However, more and more the need for this worry is being eradicated. Pet friendly hotels are springing up everywhere, ensuring that you can take your complete family with you on vacation and not leave your beloved pooch behind. With the added security provided by the LeashLocket, you need not worry about your dog getting into trouble in unfamiliar climes, either! Here are a few of the best options for a vacation with your dog in the USA.

Leash Laws

2/26/14 10:05 AM

Are you confused by leash laws? You’re not the only one! Leash laws vary by state, as well as by municipality. Some states require dogs to be on a leash at all times, others are more lenient and still others only require certain breeds to be on leashes. Some laws dictate the length of the leash, others the type of leash. No wonder we are all confused! But, the bottom line is, leash laws are there to protect you and your pooch and hopefully accidents are avoided when the laws are obeyed. They also protect dog owners and non-owners alike. Even though most dogs don’t mean any harm by jumping on others (they’re just excited!) there is still the possibility that an injury can occur, which isn’t good for anyone involved.
