Homewood Suites by Hilton has officially climbed aboard the pet-friendly-across-the-brand train and that’s worth noting. As of January 2022, Homewood Suites is pet-friendly across North America. Pet tourism is the trend for the new year.
Before each walk, I rub the tube on my dog’s feet, coating my dog’s paw pads with wax. This adds a barrier between her paws and the road salt. In a pinch, you can use petroleum jelly. Neither are toxic if the dog licks them, but both wear off in less than an hour. Long walks need reapplication.
