I have been carting my dog Victor – an 11- year-old poodle/schnauzer cross – around since I got him three years ago, and I’ve been figuring it out as I go. I own a Kia Soul (bought before I got Victor) that turned out to be a great dog car because putting the back seat down allows for a lot of doggie space and an hatchback makes in and out easy.

National Pet Day Guess what? Pets make the […]
There’s only a few weeks left but with Family Day in Ontario coming up, I think I might take advantage of Red Roof Inn’s great deal for pet owners. Usually, hotels/motels that are pet friendly charge extra to have the pooches in tow. Not so at the always pet-friendly Red Roof: until the end of […]

Sometimes when hitting the open road we can take our canine companions with us, while other times we’re globetrotting across countries and seeking out a dog fix in […]
