As vacation season heats up, many pet owners face an unappealing choice—an expensive and sometimes depressing stay at a boarding facility for Fido or a drastically curtailed selection of pet-friendly accommodations for the family. Fortunately, more and more hotels and vacation rental properties these days are recognizing how much people want to travel with their furry friends, but keeping the costs and parameters of these policies straight (number of pets, dogs/cats only, weight limits, etc.) can be confusing. Enter TripsWithPets (, which compiles detailed, up-to-date information on hotel pet policies and pet amenities and offers online reservations at nearly 50,000 pet-friendly hotels across the U.S. and Canada.
