Dog-Friendly Places to Stay

One of the challenges dog owners face when traveling with their canine family members is finding hotels, motels, RV parks and other dog-friendly places to stay. Many establishments simply do not allow pets of any kind, and a number of RV parks and camping grounds have rules against pets so it can be difficult to find a place that you and your four-legged friend(s) are welcome to spend the night at. 

Casual RVers can plan well in advance, take the time to locate places to stay that welcome them and their dog, but for the full-time RVer who finds themselves suddenly faced with a mechanical issue that requires their home on wheels to stay at a repair shop overnight or longer, there may not be time or consistent Internet to allow for searching for a suitable place to sleep while the RV is being serviced.


BringFido.com is a website and smartphone app that has a directory of over 200,000 places that you can stay with your dog, and restaurants that allow dogs on the premises. While knowing which hotels, motels, restaurants and other establishments are dog-friendly is helpful, bringfido.com has a lot more to offer, including reviews from other dog owners so you can see which places other travelers recommend.

Other places you can find out about are:

  • beaches that are either designated specifically for dogs and their owners or allow dogs
  • dog parks that are safe zones for dogs to be off-leash 
  • recommended veterinarians
  • so much more!
