This four-legged tour of New England is a complete guide for traveling with your dog, providing recommendations of dog-friendly places to stay, play, eat, and more.It's well known that finding accommodations when traveling with your dog can be difficult, if not impossible. In fact, approximately 90% of all lodging establishments do not accept pets, and the few who do rarely advertise the fact. But no longer, with this comprehensive guide at hand. Intrepid traveler and dog-lover Trisha Blanchet has scoured the six New England states with the aid of her trusty mutt Sadie to find establishments that don't just accept pets, but welcome them with open arms. She recommends accommodations ranging from high-end hotels in Boston, to country B&Bs in Vermont, to campgrounds on the coast of Maine, and every level in between. In addition, Blanchet points out restaurants with outdoor service, dog-friendly bookstores, historic sites and tourist attractions where pets are allowed, hiking trails and dog parks, and even doggie day-care centers, as well as where to find pet stores, kennels, groomers, and vets. With Dog-Friendly New England in your car, you won't have to leave your best friend at home the next time you hit the road. 30 black and white photographs, 26 maps, index.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this book to perhaps find some new dog stores and dog parks, but this book was severely lacking in this information. I know of several dog parks in Massachusetts (which are rare, but there are a few) and this book didn't list even one of them. For a book that says on the cover it has dog park listings, this is not acceptable. If you want to know of places to go in New England, you best be asking the locals by looking up a local pet store in the phone directory and calling. If you'll be in the Boston area (a larger area than what this book calls 'Greater Boston'), get the 'City Dog' book.
