In addition to this informative and useful newsletter, the DogTrekker staff of writers, researchers and research pups have worked hard since our April launch of DogTrekker.com to bring you informative and engaging stories about places to go and things to do with your dog, along with a wealth of localized and accurate listings by region in Northern California.
We thank the thousands of you who have used the site to find dog-passionate lodging, restaurants, hiking, splash sites and activities. Thanks, too, to those of you who have spread the word about DogTrekker.com, the website, to friends and family through Facebook, clubs and meet-up groups, rescue organizations, in person and on the trail. We also appreciate the very positive feedback that you’ve provided us at the many events attended by DogTrekker staff this summer.
In the past five months, we have increased our listings on DogTrekker.com 100-fold; added many of your road-tested, dog-friendly suggestions; partnered with veteran dog-travel writers for additional story and location ideas; added hundreds of dog-friendly events throughout NorCal; and vetted via personal experience (tough job, but someone has to do it) or direct contact the accuracy of the content we are providing. We have also listed and described the work of more than 140 rescue organizations, searchable by breed or area, with dozens of stories about the heroes who save thousands of our four-legged friends a year.
Even though summer is over, the next several months are really “best of show” when it comes to dog-friendly travel. The weather is terrific, crowds are lighter and prices are often lighter, too. We have an exciting line-up of fun places to go and great things to do with your dog coming up over the next several months of newsletters and at DogTrekker.com
Glad to have you trekking with us,
—Your friends at DogTrekker.com
