Dog-Friendly Travel Campaigns and Opportunities

Hello. I’m Tonya Wilhelm, a freelance travel writer specializing in dog-friendly travel.  My readers are dedicated dog parents focused on LIVING life to the fullest and including their canine companions in their adventures. I enjoy collaborating with tourism groups and brands and coming up with unique and compelling content via the written word, photography, and videos. My goal is a win-win for you, my readers, and my favorite canine, Dexter.

Dexter and I are always looking for fun, dog-friendly adventures. If you have a dog-friendly establishment you would like us to visit, please contact me for details.

My inbox is always open. Wags~Tonya & Dexter

We are happy that yours did. Glad you and your family enjoyed Changing Tides; we certainly enjoy sharing it, especially with folks who appreciate it. Of course, a heart-felt review also helps us! Thanks for visiting us. Renee & Kathy-Changing Tides Cottages
