Pet Twitter Parties – Join the Fun | thepupdiary.com

11 Mar

Our doggy friend and pet expert, Charlotte Reed, has been hosting pet twitter parties the past few months and we finally had a chance to participate in one last week. Being new to Twitter (we are @thepupdiary) we wanted to see how the party worked and more importantly, we were interested in the topic – traveling with your pet. Char had a great lineup of experts who offered tips and tricks on pet travel. We couldn’t type fast enough – #gopettravel – to keep up!  Giveaways included Sherpa Bags, AAA PetBook, and a 2-night stay at the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort!

So, what did we learn?  Plan, plan, and then plan some more!  Here are a few sites we love that can give you a great start:

GoPetFriendly.com is a great source because they are actually out on the road and visit the places they recommend.  They cover thousands of miles and several states each year with two large pups as doggy guides. (They also picked our very favorite vacation spot – Glen Highland Farm – as their top pick for last year!)

The AAA PetBook has more than 14,000 pet-friendly accommodations in North America so be sure to pick up a copy.  (They also have a fun pet travel photo contest every year!)

The upcoming Go Pet Travel Facebook Q&A on March 25 from 12:30 to 1:30 pm ET will offer more great advice.

And don’t miss the next Twitter Party – #getpetclean – April 9 at 7 pm on Twitter!
