THE DOG LOVER'S GUIDE TO TRAVEL begins with basic advice for pet parents looking to take a vacation with Fido: How to determine if your dog is ready for a trip; how to select the right carrier and appropriate travel gear; what to know before booking a flight with your pup.

In each city, Carter highlights the best pet offerings, from top hotels to perfect parks to trendy pet shops and doggie bakeries. Special features include walks to take with your dog, insider tips from local pet owners and sidebars detailing unique opportunities available only to people with a dog in tow.
