Traveling With Your Pet Photos Wanted!

Kim Anna SkyAre you taking a trip with your pet this summer? Share your adventure by snapping a photo of your pet during your getaway or a location nearby.

Send your photo to us by using this form now through September.

Photos will be posted on the Travel and Pets blog pages along with space for comments, and printed images will be displayed on the bulletin board in the Travel Neighborhood. It’ll be fun to see where people have bravely ventured with their pet!

Heading out of town with your beloved four-legged companion can be a challenge. Make your outing a little easier and check out AAA’s Traveling with Your Pet 2013 Guidebook, a quality resource to help you locate pet-friendly lodging around the country. If you’re doing your own research, read the pet policy details and contact the lodging facilities to ask specific questions before you book your reservation. Some hotels proudly promote their pet-friendly accommodations but have weight limit restrictions, charge additional fees, and are strict about pets left unattended in the room while you cruise the town or back country.

And remember the Pets Neighborhood. It’s where you can find great books to teach you how to train your pet. Plan ahead and everyone will be happy!

As a Public Services Specialist, in addition to Reference work I promote the Travel, Pets, and Lawn & Garden neighborhoods, coordinate nature-themed programs for adults and families, and serve on the Big Read planning committee. My interests include exploring new travel destinations, U.S. national parks, Alaska, hiking trails in Kansas, Colorado and Arkansas, birding, sandhill cranes, monarch waystations, Kansas native plants, citizen science activities, and reading nature essays. Peter Matthiessen's Shadow Country is my all-time favorite novel.
