I was in California with my dog Rusty, and I was in search of a dog food supplier because he was experiencing hair loss. The veterinarian I visited told me that he simply was not getting enough nutrition and that the food I was giving him was not very healthy.
At a local dog food store in Florida, I was pleased to find some natural dry dog food that is specially formulated for dogs that are experiencing hair loss and other problems. Luckily, Rusty responded well to the natural dog food and happily grew back his hair within three weeks.
America is a wonderful place for your dog, because there are so many places that are dog friendly. You can find pet stores and speciality boutiques practically everywhere, and you can buy some great stuff for your pooch.
Of course, if you want to go on vacation with your dog, here are the best vacation spots in the US for your and your dog:
Carmel is perfect for dogs on the beach! There is no leash law, so you can let your dog run around on the sand and in the surf without anyone telling you off. Dogs of all shapes and sizes come here to frolic in the sun, and there are enough wash rooms for easy clean up. I love bringing Rusty to the beach – it is his favourite place to be.
Key West, Florida
Key West is beautiful for those who love boating – you can rent a boat and even go on a dog Kayak with your pet. Best of all, there is a fantastic dog beach there called the Key West Dog Beach. Paddling, swimming, and lounging about while afloat on the waves is amazing.
Kansas has many Pet Ranches and Off-Leash Dog Parks so if the beach is not for you, maybe a nice river or forest park is the perfect place for you and your dog. There are some pet facilities that have membership fees, but other parks offer great walk-in rates.
If you want something more controlled, there are artificial turf grass parks and fenced outdoor play areas where your dog can safely run around without worrying whether or not they will run off and get lost. This is perfect for younger puppies.
The majestic Missouri river is a gorgeous, historical natural landmark. The river trail tours there are very dog friendly, and you can talk your dog out for a long, luxurious walk around the shores of the river. The Weston Bend State Park is also dog-friendly, though you may want to keep your dog on a leash while walking so that it does not run off.
The US is perfect for dog owners of all ages, and when I can afford it, I make sure to travel with my dog Rusty. I just bought extra bags of his special dog food so that he does not end up eating bad kibble while we are on the road!
