Many people are looking for pet-friendly places to go winter vacationing this year. As a result, there are many articles that list these locations. However, not all of them take into consideration how much fun your dog will have with you! In this article, we’ll give you some suggestions on where you can go with your furry friend and still enjoy yourself.
The first step is deciding what kind of climate you want to visit during the winter months. If it’s warmer climates that interest you then consider visiting Florida or Arizona in December or January when they’re warmest, but note that the last week in February could be chilly due to snowstorms coming from Canada which might make things less enjoyable for both humans and their pets.
If you want to go somewhere with colder weather but still warm enough that the temperature won’t be too harsh on your pet’s paws, then consider visiting some of these cities. Chicago is known for having a major dog culture which means there are many places where dogs are welcome. New York City has also become more dog-friendly in recent years, with places like Central Park allowing dogs on leashes.
For those who want to go somewhere where the temperature is cold but not unbearably so then consider visiting Vancouver or Seattle in late January when it starts warming up again due to their proximity to the Pacific Ocean which keeps them warmer than other cities at similar latitudes. If you want to visit somewhere with colder weather but the temperature is not quite as harsh on your pet’s paws, consider visiting Ottawa or Montreal in late January when it starts warming up again due to their proximity to the Great Lakes which keeps them warmer than other cities at similar latitudes.
For all these locations you’ll want to ensure that if there are any activities you want to do with your dog that they are pet-friendly. For example, if you will be going skiing or snowboarding then find a resort where pets can go as well so everyone in the family has fun!
If you want to go on a winter hike then find out if there are any areas that allow dogs but be aware of signs which may indicate that your pet needs to remain leashed. If you’re visiting an area with public transportation, make sure the mode of transport is animal-friendly before getting in!
In general, just be sure to do your research on the location you intend to visit so that everyone in your family can have a good time.
