Traveling with Your Dog

Etiquette for the Traveling Dog

Only travel with a well-behaved dog

Only travel with a well-behaved dog that is friendly to people and especially children. If your dog is not comfortable around other people, you might consider taking your dog to obedience classes or hiring a professional trainer.

Please keep your dog leashed

People that are afraid of dogs or even people with leashed dogs will greatly appreciate it. Plus most hotel owners, restaurant owners, store owners, and festival coordinators require your dog to be on leash.

Always clean up after your dog

Pet stores sell pooper scooper bags. You can also buy sandwich bags from your local grocery store. They work quite well and are cheap!

Festivals, Outdoor Events

Make sure your dog has relieved himself or herself before entering a festival or event area. The number one reason that most festival coordinators do not allow dogs is because some dogs go to the bathroom in areas where people might sit or on a vendor's booth.

Vacation Rental Units

  • Never leave your dog alone in your rental unit. The number one reason most management companies do not allow dogs is because some people leave them in the unit alone. Some dogs, no matter how well-trained, can cause damage, bark continuously or scare the housekeepers.
  • Unless the hotel management allows it, please make sure your dog is never left alone in the room. We have even found a case where two dogs were stolen from a unit.
  • When your dog needs to go to the bathroom, take him or her away from the unit to an appropriate place.


Keep a close eye on your dog and make sure they do not go to the bathroom in the store. Store owners that allow dogs inside assume that responsible dog owners will be entering their store. Before entering a dog-friendly store, visit your local pet store first. They are by far the most forgiving. If your dog does not go to the bathroom there, then you are off to a great start! If your dog does make a mistake in any store, offer to clean it up.
