  1. My first visit and I already love it! I have been working Delilah FOREVER to be able to have her off-leash and in one minute you have given me another resource!

    Thank you so very much!

  2. What a great list–so much to learn!

    We go camping with the pups often, and seek out places that are out of the way and not frequented by scads of families with kids and dogs of their own. And we try to go for a nice hike before bedding down, so the pups sleep through the night despite the excitement of being so close to nature and things to sniff and chase!

  3. Since I have hounds, I second the retro entrepreneur – I’ll take the black Porsche 911 convertible. I love the list and will visit all (already read Kristine’s find piece) after work.

  4. Thanks so much for including us in your great list of links! I think taking Pyrrha camping would be a great first trip with her. As you know, our Shepherd is also reactive around other dogs when he’s on-leash. Finding a nice quiet campsite would be the perfect way for her to figure out what traveling is all about. We did a post a while back that has a few more tips for camping with a dog. Here’s the link: http://gopetfriendlyblog.com/make-camping-safe-and-fun-for-your-pet/
