Dog Road Trip Ideas


2019 will be the year of dog-friendly traveling and exploring for Dexter and me. Yup, Dexter and I are going to hit the open road and experience some unique dog-friendly destinations. A road trip with Dexter the Dog isn’t new to me, but 2019 is going to be epic, and here’s why.

Road Trip with a Dog

I’m eager to travel the US with Dexter and visit as many states and towns as we can. There are so many impressive dog-friendly cities and states, and I want to see them all with Dexter. I know that may not be possible, but we are going to try to visit as many as we can.

Each Wednesday starting in 2019, Dexter and I are going to start hosting weekly vlogs on all things dog-friendly and related to traveling with dogs. We will be documenting our dog-friendly vacations, weekend getaways, and even short day trips on my YouTube channel then uploading that content, right here on the blog. But, wait, there’s more.

I will be putting together online dog-friendly travel guides highlighting our adventures. Through our vlog and blog you will be able to virtually experience our dog-friendly accommodations, restaurants, festivals, parks, and other fun and quirky activities we may find. I’m on a mission to inspire you to LIVE and explore what this vast world has to offer you and your trusty companion. I’m hoping through our journey, I will motivate you to travel more with your dog or to enjoy your hometown with your dog at your side.

Dexter The Dog’s 2019 Road Trip Destination Goals

I love my dog training clients too much to be a traveling nomad, so our dog-friendly vacations will circle around extended weekends and a few week or two-week trips. I’m still researching and finalizing my dog-friendly vacation ideas, but Dexter and I have narrowed our list to a few key states. Drum roll please… Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Whew.

  1. i don’t travel with my dog – he HATES cars! he gets so anxious anytime we have to ride off somewhere; drool and everything! happy you and dexter get to explore though, he must be thrilled to see so much of the states.

  2. You have such a beautiful dog, and how fun to plan a dog-friendly trip. They are like traveling with kids, traveling with a pet must take a lot of extra planning.

  3. I’ve always wanted to travel with our dogs so this is such a handy series to make. I hope you and dexter have safe travels! I live in PA and it’s a beautiful state to hike in, so I hope you guys make some time to check out the trails and water falls!

  4. Road trips with animals must be super exciting, but also demanding. I’m happy to read about your experiences and possible destinations. I need to buy a dog now! πŸ™‚

  5. My parents retired recently and have been traveling in their RV for long periods of time. Their dog loves it! He goes everywhere with them so I will have to let them know some of the fun dog friendly destinations.

  6. Dexter is so cute!! I love the idea of writing out your plans and goals for the new year. Looks like you and Dexter have a lot of fun and exciting roads trips planned for 2019. We have two dogs and would love to travel with them but they are bigger dogs so that makes it a little harder and not to mention our two toddlers.

  7. We were be moving by the end of this month to other state. We have a cat that never been travel I hope this tips will works for her as well.

  8. A road trip with your dog sounds great! I love traveling and my pup enjoys the car rides, so I can only imagine how much fun this would be with my own dog.

  9. Your dog is adorable! I got a puppy a few months ago and he loves the car but I don’t think I could take him on a road trip. He’s only 8 months and already 95 lbs. He definitely likes his space.

  10. First off…. I have to say Dexter is adorable! I am also loving your plans for this year and it looks like there are lots of things planned for this amazing pooch πŸ™‚ I cannot wait to read all about them as I love seeing your dog posts.

  11. Dexter is truly adorable.. while we do not have pets ourselves, we do know of friends and family who hate leaving their pets while traveling and i will share your blog with them…

  12. I had a dog when I was younger, but I don’t recall ever taking him on a road trip. You’ve certainly covered a lot of miles with yours!

  13. Tonya that sounds absolutely amazing!! You and Dexter are going to have such a fabulous time, I can’t wait to read about all your adventures.

  14. Looks like you have some great trips ahead of you for your dog. I wish I had something like this more local on the west coast to know more places to take my Dog Oreo. This is really cool.

  15. Wow, this sounds amazing! We took a road trip from IL to Cape Cod with Ruby last summer. If you are going to Plymouth, I would definitely recommend going out on the Cape for a few days. We found it to be very dog friendly especially in the off season. I look forward to following your adventures!

  16. Wow this has to be the most adorable post I read in a while. A dog makes a great best friend and I adore the bond you two share.

  17. How fun. I’ve done a few road trips with my dog and they have been interesting. While he doesn’t mind being in the car, getting him to go the bathroom during stops is a huge challenge.

  18. This story has just made my day! And those pictures of your dog are the cutest. I don’t have a dog, but I really want to get one this year.

  19. We traveled with our pugs frequently. Our new pup is a little too energetic so I’ve been hesitant thus far. But I survived traveling with toddlers, so I know I can manage a scruffy rescue dog. Plus, the new experiences are good for all of us. Can’t wait to follow along more of Dexter’s adventures.

  20. Plush and I will be following along because often if it’s dog friendly it’s cat friendly too – or should be but people don’t know that Traveling Cats are a thing. New England is our stomping grounds, maybe we’ll bump into each other. I’ll be the one with the Persian at the dog thing πŸ™‚

  21. I think it’s great that you are going to be traveling with Dexter. I’d love to visit some of these destinations with my dog as well. I live alone so he travels with me.

  22. Your schedule looks amazing and you’re going to have so much fun! What an inspiration for other pet owners. Back in the day before vlogging and social media I used to travel with my two cats around Ireland when I lived there. My oldest cat was a show cat so after shows we would travel around the country with our two leash trained kitties and take them for walks on the beaches and cliffs! It was so much fun!
    Wishing you safe travels with the handsome Dexter πŸ˜‰

  23. First, that top photo is so adorable! I loved the vlog! Eagerly looking forward to seeing more of your trips! So exciting, and to have a video record of your travels together is priceless, and just wonderful to be sharing with others. Happy and Safe Trails to you both!

  24. What an adorable pup you have! It’s great to see different places that allow pets during vacations. I know a lot of people that would like to take their dogs with them on vacation but aren’t sure of places that would allow it. I’ll be sure to pass this along. Thanks for sharing!

  25. I am planning to buy a dog. And I’d love to visit some of these destinations with my dog as well. Great ideas!

  26. You made traveling with a pet dog so simpler. Your dog is really beautiful. Thanks for the tips. I am also going to take my dog on a road trip following your tips.

  27. You made traveling with a pet dog so simpler. Your dog is really beautiful. Thanks for the tips. I am also going to take my dog on a road trip following your tips.

  28. I can’t wait to see you and Dex’s updates! You’re going to get so many cool photos. Me and the dogs are moving out of state soon, so we’ll be traveling a few hours at a time – I’m going to go on long walks before so they just sleep the whole way, hopefully!

  29. I’m kinda jealous with your dog, he have more goals for this year than me! That’s really good for him and for you guys. He really knows how to travel πŸ™‚

  30. Thank you for this article! Many people think that having a dog ties them down a lot, but there are so many ideas about traveling with dogs. Your blog clearly shows that it’s possible!!! Love it.

  31. Dexter is sucha cutie! It’s so great that you can take your little pup on a road trip. I wish I could take mine on one but unfortunately my country isn’t very pet-friendly. One day I hope he gets to do this though!

  32. A road trip with your dog sounds great! I don’t have a dog right now but I’m seriously considering buying one and have it as my travel buddy

  33. I would say it is more like Road trip with a dog in US ideas :)) Definitely a great article to get the ideas where to travel with a dog. Thanks for sharing!
