Louis in a lavender field in the South of France, 2012

Grab a cup of tea and settle in for some tips on traveling with your furry friends! We’ve taken our pugs to Paris (blog post below on Belle’s journey from an Oklahoma puppy mill to Paris) and across the US on weeks-long road trips.

Since our current rescue pugs have special needs, we rarely go out to eat or travel together as a couple without them.

Hear my tips on how to find pet-friendly lodging, restaurants, and activities, what to bring, and how to make the experience with your beloved furbaby as smooth as possible.

Below you’ll find an assortment of photos from our travels with pets dating back to France in 2012 with sweet Louis! Wishing you happy and safe travels. Bisous. x
