Julie (right) says ''bartender pour me another''
Kim and Larry, winners of our June 2013 DogCation, recently took pugs Bert and Julie to the Hotel Rex in San Francisco and had this to say: "we cannot thank you enough for providing us with a wonderful Dogtrekker.com weekend! Our 2 pugs, Bert and Julie, LOVED staying with us, as much as we loved being there. We were able to eat at the bar with Bert and Julie present, and everyone loved saying hello to them. The food was good, the room was great, loved the location, and people were super kind."
Heading south on H/W 101 just past the first Mill Valley exit (East Blithedale), on the way to DogTrekker.com HQ, Kayla lifts her head up from the backseat of the car and looks around. As we exit off the freeway onto Redwood Highway, she stands up and her head goes out the window. By time we turn in to one of the double driveways of the Cable Car Coffee kiosk, her nose is working overtime and sometimes she has to be warned to stay inside the car -- leaning is OK, climbing out isn't.
As the always cheerful baristas prepare Dad's excellent cup of morning coffee, the biscuit appears and makes its way to the back seat where Kayla has her first treat of the day. How does she know that heading to the red cable car building means a treat? Well, she has been visiting Cable Car Coffee for some time now and of course, she is a lab after all!

Thinking of loading up your pack and heading off on a road trip? Well take a cue from one of our intrepid trekkers who did just that this past summer. She loaded her three pups into the “Doggie Mobile” and headed off for adventure on the highway. With no set plan, other then finding and experiencing dog-friendly spots, they were able to stop when and where they wanted to. One stop was the Larkspur Hotel in Truckee where Bentley, Cooper and Murphy were greeted with doggie treats and presents. As you can see the boys made themselves right at home. more »
