Welcome to Paw Press, DogTrekker.com’s update on what’s happening in the dog world. We cover doggie events that we attend; provide updates on where we've been; inform you of new, dog-passionate lodging packages; and keep current with dog advocates' on-going battles to maintain and grow access to dog-friendly areas. Occasionally, we also throw in a few howls and barks from the editors and managing partners of DogTrekker.
As always, let us know what you think about our coverage and let us know how DogTrekker can help make life more rewarding for you and your pups.
