7 of the Best Dog Travel Blogs to Follow

Travelling with a dog isn’t that simple. You may be an experienced traveller, but once you start travelling with a dog, there’s extra questions every step of the way. What accommodation is dog friendly? Are they allowed on public transport or the plane? What dog-friendly sight-seeing and restaurant options do I have?

Since I’ve started travelling with my dog, Schnitzel, an invaluable source of information has been blogs and websites about travelling with a dog. Not only that, these websites were also the source of inspiration that made me realise that travelling with a dog is possible.

As I’m sure you’d love to find out more places to read about travelling with a dog (as well as this website, Travelnuity), I’ve put together this list of my favourite dog-friendly travel blogs. While there will never be as many dog travel blogs as there are general travel blogs (virtually an infinite number!) hopefully you can find the answers to your questions on these, plus be inspired to travel with your dog.

Dog Travel Blog

When You’re Flying Around the World:

Not quite a blog, this comprehensive site is frequently my first port of call to determine the rules for a dog to travel to any country. They also have a handy guide to the rules for transporting pets on different airlines.

It’s always best to double check the official government or airline rules though as well, in case any changes have occurred, or there’s extra finicky details you need to take care of.

When You Need Some Adventurous Inspiration:
Long Haul Trekkers

Long Haul Trekkers was one of the blogs that convinced me that travelling with a dog is possible, if you’re determined. Hey, they travelled by bikes with a dog through South America!

For plenty of next-level dog-friendly travel inspiration, check out their story on how they got to see Machu Picchu while travelling with a dog and no car.

When You’re Travelling in the UK:
The Pets Pyjamas

I was annoyed that I didn’t find out about The Pets Pyjamas until just after leaving the UK! Although initially also an online store with dog accessories, this site now specialises in dog-friendly accommodation bookings, mainly in the UK.

There’s a huge range of dog-friendly accommodation to choose from, and their concierge will take care of all the details for you. Best of all, there’s no extra dog fees, no matter what size your dog.

They’ve also got a blog, with great UK-centric articles, such as the best dog-friendly beaches in the UK.

When You’re Travelling in the USA:
Go Pet Friendly

If you’re travelling to or within the USA with a dog any time soon, don’t miss visiting Go Pet Friendly and their Take Paws blog. There’s a huge searchable database of pet-friendly locations.

Back in 2017, the team and their dogs behind the website took a mega road-trip around the USA, visiting all 48 lower US states, and compiling the list of the most dog-friendly attraction in each state.

When You’re Up for some Hiking:
You Did What With Your Weiner

Okay, I’m a bit biased when it comes to this site, as I’ve also got a Weiner Dog (or Dachshund). But hiking is one of the most fun things to do with your dog when you’re travelling, no matter how small they are.

YDWWYD (for short) has lots of tips for hiking with your dog, such as this guide to what you should pack when hiking with a dog. There’s also tips on camping and travelling, with a Northwestern US focus.

When You Want to Know The Best Gear:
Dog Jaunt

Dog Jaunt is run by Mary-Alice from Seattle, who has a Cavalier. While there haven’t been any recent posts, the blog still contains a wealth of information, in particular on dog gear, both on and off the road.

Check out her very comprehensive guide on all the possible gear you should pack when travelling with a dog.

When You Like to Travel in Style:
Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund

Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund is one of the most famous dogs around, and he has a big love of travelling. As well as travelling throughout Canada and the US, he’s also visited Caribbean Islands and Europe.

My favourite of his travel articles is from when he visited Cinque Terre, which of course I later made sure to visit with my dog, Schnitzel, when we also visited Italy.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂 It’s always great with these sharings of our favorite bloggers 🙂

    Bettina and her fluffies

  2. I really feel glad that people like you share such a great list of bloggers by taking so many efforts. It’s really inspiring. Keep writing and sharing more. Best wishes!

    • Fiona – There’s not many blogs out there covering dog-friendly travel in Australia. (Something I’m hoping to add more of next year!) One website I’ve come across is puppytales.com.au, which has a great Instagram account that I follow. Let me know if you find any others!

  3. “Everything was put together perfectly. It’s difficult to say what was the best part of the article. It was all put together so well”
    Through your article, I visited one of the websites and go to know that you can travel with your pet in Canadian trains. I really wanted to travel on a train with my dog. Finally, I can travel with my buddy “Bruno”.

  4. Thanks for the suggestion. Would visit You Did What With Your Weiner. Planning to go hiking with my poodle. I do need to prepare him and also I need to know what things I need to bring for him.

  5. I always recommend using a professional when traveling with my dog. Pet Transport can be dangerous especially on flights. Pet Transport Pro is my go to service. Guy named Anthony is a must

    • Brendan – I believe it depends on what type flight and the experience of the pet owner. Certainly for shorter flights where you have previous experience, it’s fine to do yourself, but longer trips requiring cargo bookings are often best done with a pet transport company.

  6. Thanks for this very helpful list! We love to travel with our dogs ourselves and this will help us planning our international adventures even better.

    We also recently started our own travel blog for Dutch pet owners at https://www.pawsandpassports.com where we write about our own adventures. Keep it up!

  7. This was an enjoyable read and it looks like it’s been updated. I just started getting into the blogging life and looking for my niche. I think it is geared more toward traveling with the pets but more toward vanlife and hiking. I already started going down the rabbit hole but I think that means you are doing something right! 🙂
