But don’t fret—there are plenty of great outdoorsy vacations you can take with your dog in-tow. Consider these outdoorsy and dog friendly destinations for your next trip:
A Trip to the Mountains
Travel to the mountains for a vacation filled with outdoor fun and activities. For a diverse experience no matter where you go, one of the best places to visit is Colorado. Breathe in fresh air as you and your pup go for a hike or simply relax by a cozy cabin fireplace.
Journey to the rugged Colorado Rockies and stay at a peaceful ranch like the Whistling Elk Ranch. Go hiking, mountain biking, wildlife tours, horse trail rides or go fishing.
