If you are a dog lover who carefully plans your vacation destinations around whether or not your pup can come and have fun with you, these cities are your best options.
In today's society, for many of us our pets are part of our family, and in no way would we leave them out of a family trip. Going camping? Take your dog to Phoenix, Arizona; they have about 6 dog-friendly campgrounds. Snowshoeing? Take them to Sun Valley, Idaho. Hiking? Take your dog just about anywhere on this list.
According to the 2015-2016 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, approximately 54 million U.S. households own a dog, and for good reason. Studies have shown that dogs provide great companionship; they encourage healthy fitness routines and help increase social interaction.
With the help of BringFido's dog friendly city guide, I have come up with the best cities for dogs, the top activities for them to enjoy and the greatest adventures for you and your pet to embark on together.
