What's more, well-lit lights in this city can dine inside the restaurant with their owners.
On a Sunday morning, you will see men and women dressed in elegant clothes walking with their well-prepared pets on a Sunday picnic tour and heading to the nearby park.

Brussels He is also on our list of Top Ten Destinations. Although your pet may not be welcome in museums, it will be welcomed almost everywhere. This is the walking city, and if it stays for a month it will not run out of different places to visit with your pet. There are wonderful gardens everywhere, or you can walk in the famous antiques markets, or stroll past the Belgian past at Cinquantenaire Park.
Have you ever installed Segway? It looks like a oversized skateboard with a handle and an electric motor. Brussels is famous for the availability of these small devices that will transport you around the city at a suitable speed for your pet to work alongside.

Madrid It is one of Europe's oldest cities and deserves to be ranked in the top ten best pet friendly places to visit. This is a city of squares with fountains and statues everywhere. The Spaniards love their pets, and they will also love you if they are well behaved and friendly.
Take your pet on a stroll to Plaza Mayor, known as the "Aristocratic Center" in Madrid, home to the stunning Royal Palace, a 17th-century monument combining Baroque and classic styles. Next to the palace, you can find Plaza de Oriente (square), the opera house and the modern Almudena Cathedral, which was dedicated by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
Another option during your visit to Spain is the beautiful Costa del Sol coast with beautiful white sandy beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see.

PLAYA DEL CARMEN In Mexico it is a great destination for fans of wonderful blue water and white sand.
Little Shi Shi Tzu named Rogles and lived there for a while, and there was almost no place that was not welcome. If I need to exercise, there is a small partial gym in the open air, where Ruggles lay in the shade and waiting for me. Down on the beach there were dozens of small patio restaurants where Ruggles and I were sharing lunch.
On at least one occasion, we took the luxury intercity bus from Playa del Carmen to Cancun. Ragles took the seat next to me. I am not sure if it is legal, but no one has said a word about it in any way.
Near Mayan temples in Chichen Itza. I don't think pets are allowed in the grounds.
Two or three kilometers away, there are many caves that contain underwater pools. I saw many pets during my visit to these caves.
Costa Rica It is a popular destination for pet travel owners. Customs pass with your pet a little more than just a wave of hand. If you are looking for gambling and an exciting nightlife, San Jose is the place for you. There are a lot of pet friendly hotels in the city.
Most people who visit Costa Rica head to the countryside where tall trees, beautiful birds and wonderful waterfalls are located on every corner. Of course, don't forget the rainforest as gorgeous blue butterflies flutter around the lush vegetation. The accommodations in these areas are less elegant, but you will find many people who welcome you and your pet.
To enter the pet-friendly Costa Rica, you will need a good health certificate indicating that your pet is disease-free and properly vaccinated. Dogs should be vaccinated against rabies, disease, hepatitis, bone disease and virus disease, and cats should be vaccinated against rabies.
Upon completing the ten best pet friendly destinations, we travel to the United States. You can bring your pet to the United States with a health certificate stating that it is healthy and has been vaccinated against rabies.
The main west It is probably the most pet friendly city in the United States. This small town can only be called "laid-back" as life moves in a slower place. Your pet will be welcomed in almost every hotel, bed and breakfast in the city. Each restaurant has an outdoor dining area where your pet will be welcomed, and some restaurants allow small pets that have acted well inside.
I visited the city a few years ago, and while Raggls and I were out for a stroll, I stopped by in front of a fairly elegant restaurant. I was studying the list and Maitre came out to talk to me. I asked if Ruggles would be welcome and his response was: Does he like beef or chicken?
Big Apple – New York Worth a place on our list. It seems that everyone who lives in this bustling city has a pet. There is so much that everyone who walks pets will have six or eight at a time to leashes on a morning outing. Sunday at Central Park is the Doge Heaven. Your pet will meet and receive hundreds of other pets while you are outing. Then you can stop at an outside café for a "coffee and roll".
It is also the city of chic hotel and pets are not welcomed anywhere more than chic hotel. The higher the room rate, the more pet welcome. However, there is a wide range of places where your pet will be welcome. Pet listings travel over a hundred hotels that welcome pets.
A few years ago, Raggels and I stayed at one of the beautiful hotels in Central Park. In the late afternoon, I went to the pub for a cocktail and took Ruggles. We were sitting in the bar when the manager came. Rogles has given some bets and said, "I would rather have a well-behaved pet in my hotel than a little kid not behaving well." This hotel, like many others, sent a guest to my room every morning to take Ruggles for a walk.
Some hotels in New York have room service listings for pets!
Asheville, North Carolina Well worth a place in the top ten list. Over 50% of Asheville accommodations accept pets that testify to their claim as one of America's most pet friendly cities. For the travel pet owner who loves golf this is the best option.
During the summer, Asheville boasts a number of outdoor concerts, street fairs and festivals that your pet will be welcome.
San Diego It is only a short distance from our borders. This metropolitan city on the ocean contains only "dog shores". There are hundreds of pet friendly accommodations in the city and its surroundings. On a recent visit with my new pet also Shih Tzu named Bear. We stayed at the Sofia Hotel which couldn't be the most pet friendly. Young women who worked at the front desk always stopped talking to Bear and even offered kindergarten.
Every day we walked to an outdoor cafe or something for lunch or dinner. Almost the first thing to do was bring a Bear a bowl of water.
Being a famous animal owner travels
The range of accommodations and travel options available to the pet owner during travel continues to expand because these companies realize the value of your business. However, you have a responsibility to be the owner of a courteous and caring pet. Don't let your pet annoy you by letting them roam or bark. And base number one, be sure to pick up after your pet.
Visiting these pet friendly cities will make you a vacation you will never forget. Make sure to book your airline tickets early if you fly by air. Most airlines have a limit on the number of pets per flight. In addition, call or send an email to the pet-friendly hotel where you stay to confirm its pet policies so there are no surprises upon check-in. We wish you nothing but happy trips.
