Travel goes to the dogs
Thirty million Americans traveled with their pets in the past three years--and 78 percent of the time that meant taking your dog along for the ride, according to the U.S. Travel Association. In the Midwest and elsewhere around the country, dog owners are finding hotels and attractions eager to cater to this growing canine culture.
"You used to have hotels that it was just, yeah, they'll accept the dog," says Len Kain, co-founder of Dogfriendly.com, a website that lists pet-friendly spots nationwide. "But now they have packages for the dogs, even massages for dogs and room service menus for dogs."
Midwest Living® Executive Editor Trevor Meers took his black Lab, Moose, and his family on a trek to the Chicago area to check out the area's doggy destinations. Read about their finds on the next slides, as well as tips for traveling with your dog.
