Just a reminder that Cici and I have NOT visited nor rated any of the hotels below so we cannot vouch for them and they are not rated for dogitude.

What can you do with your pooch if you CAN’T take them with you on your Spring Break trip?

DogVacay may be an option. It is a community that offers dog owners a way to travel while leaving their pooch at home with a qualified host, starting at $15/night.

With hosts across the U.S. and Canada, you can also bring your dog with you

on vacation and have him stay nearby if your hotel doesn’t allow pets.

HomeExchange.com, is a home exchange service that offers an alternative to high priced hotels.

You can stay in a dog friendly home with a pool, game room and an amazing kitchen.

There’s always a well-stocked bowl of dog biscuits in the front lobby to help canines feel at home the minute they arrive. “We recognize that many people consider their dogs to be full-fledged members of the family,” says general manager Rob LeVine, owner of Miley, a 3-year-old Australian Sheepdog. “We offer dedicated rooms just for pet owners, and our staff is always happy to recommend canine-friendly activities in the area.”

The Antlers at Vail is the “Official Dog Friendly Lodging Partner” of the GoPro Summer Mountain Games (formerly the Teva Mountain Games), June 6-9. This year they’re offering an unusual special that actually makes it cheaper to stay with your dog. During the GoPro Games, instead of charging their usual $15 pet fee, they’ll reduce your room rate by $15 if you bring your dog!
