Donna Carsten is owner of Bailey Knows Travel.
“I will never forget the first time my dog Bailey first saw the Pacific Ocean,” she said. “Bailey Knows Travel was born as a way to continue to carve out options and alternatives for folks like us, who want to have travel experiences with their dogs.”
Carsten said books and websites are great sources for information but they all should be confirmed regarding recommendations.
“Travel with your dog is a wonderful experience and with so many options available, our services continue to grow,” she said.
Staff includes Deborah Nabb, who owned and operated a dog care facility written about in Dog Fancy and Fido Friendly Magazines, among other experts.
Past adventures include ones such as Sightseeing in Sedona and a trip to Santa Barbara among others.
At the Tenaya Lodge in California, pet-friendly rooms are available but must be booked over the phone. The resort also has a pet walking and pet sitting service if you plan to dine in the restaurants or indulge in a pampering spa treatment. The pet concierge there suggests bringing a favorite toy and familiar blanket for your pet as well as medications, leashes, leads, dishes; etc.
