Plan in advance! While there are many pet-friendly hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, and campgrounds, there is no guarantee that you will find one by chance. Some places require a pet security deposit, which is returned if the chairs are not chewed up or carpet piddled on. And some places charge a non-refundable fee just for the dog to stay there.

Also, be specific with your questions. Some places may allow only one pet per room. Others say "only small dogs". What is considered a small dog? One hotel manager says this is defined as "knee high" (but whose knee?).

Pet-friendly accommodations are listed and comments are available on various websites including www.pettravel.com, www.petswelcome.com, www.doginmysuitcase.com, www.1clickpethotels.com or www.travelpets.com. But as policies may change, demand a confirmation with all details in writing. Actually, some hotels even offer pet perks - from dog walking to room service menus for pets!

Also, it is best to use your own food (or at least the same brand) from home when you travel. And it is important for all dogs to wear a rabies tag, ID tag and to have an implanted microchip.

When you arrive at your destination, plan some dog-friendly activities. If your dog is going to stay in the room all day, everyday, what is the point of bringing her along?
