Chasing Waterfalls at Chutes Provincial Park (with the dog) … plus free park day!
Sometimes you have to go chasing waterfalls… especially if it’s easy. At Chutes Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada, it’s easy – and dog-friendly.
Located one kilometre off Highway #17 in Massey, Ontario, it’s the best provincial park between Sudbury and Sault Ste Marie, and the best stop if you’re travelling to either city from Toronto.
Dogtrotting goes to the cats… wait what? meowfest 2019 here we come!
Dogtrotting.net interview with meowfest 2019 organizer Sarita Fichtner. I don’t talk about this enough, but I was first a cat-lady before my dog Victor dropped in my lap. Suddenly, one of my fur-babies was portable and he and I hit the road. Dogtrotting.net was born. However, cats are my first love. I grew up […]
Dog Skijoring – Seeing is Believing at Arrowhead Provincial Park
Just when you’re looking forward to spring … I bring you snow-covered images. But not any images – pics of dog skijoring. That’s right, dog skijoring. You cross-country ski with your dog tethered to you. I thought it was crazy until I saw it with my own eyes: a group of excited dogs actively trying […]
Camper Van Dreaming: Ever go RVing with the dog?
The lure of the open road is hard to resist especially when you take the dog along … and sometimes that’s challenging when you can’t leave him alone in the hotel room and head to the museum.

Travel Nashville, TN: Fido fooling coffee shop and dog-friendly locales
‘Fido’ – the sign flashes by as I’m driving – not fast – through Nashville’s congested streets. Specifically, I’m in the ‘Hillsboro’ neighbourhood. ‘Fetch’ is the next sign, about half a block away from Fido. “Awesome,” I think. There’s an independent pet store here a block long. Why else is there a retro neon ‘pet […]
Take Your Dog to Huntsville, AL: Doggin’ the Paranormal on the Huntsville Ghost Walk
Victor, my terrier cross, is frantically turning circles while digging the grass. We’re standing in front of the Howard Weeden House built in 1819, allegedly the most haunted building in Huntsville, Alabama. Victor’s intense and determined, pawing on the ground like there’s mice beneath the soil surface.
Dog-friendly Myrtle Beach, SC: What you need to know when travelling with the dog
“This is the best layover ever,” says the Spirit Airlines flight attendant petting my dog at The Sheraton Hotel in Myrtle Beach during BlogPaws, [formally] an annual pet bloggers conference. The hotel is crawling with furry friends; the Spirit employees staying here don’t seem to mind. One tells me he used to be a dog […]
Top 7 Dogtrotting Spots of 2015
Whoahoo! Dogtrotting.net – the magazine-style blog for globetrotting dog lovers – is one year old! On January 5, 2015, I started writing about dog festivals, fun, and adventures, while carting my schnoodle Victor around with me, camera in one hand and leash (sometimes) in another. I started the blog as a complement to http://www.horsetrotting.net (about […]
