Traveling with Your Westie.......

As you know, we are a very mobile society. If your Westie is like ours, they like to go where you go.  Some of these products are intended to make your travels a little easier so that they will be safe and trouble free as you (and your Westie) move into new situations.

Dog Friendly Hotels

Marriott offers many Westie-friendly hotels.  They offer a range of amenities designed to accommodate dog owners. Please visit Marriott.com for more details.

Hilton Hotels recently launched Hilton: Pet Friendly, a program designed to make traveling with pets easier. Beginning this summer, dogs will be welcome at most Hilton Hotels & Resorts throughout the United States and Canada. Your Westie will not only be welcome, they'll enjoy special amenities, too. Please visit Hilton.com for more details.

La Quinta has over 700 pet-friendly locations from coast to coast. Please visit LaQuinta.com for more information.

Choice Hotels offers more than 2,500 Westie-friendly hotels among 11 different hotel brands, including chains such as Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Econo Lodge, the Ascend Hotel Collection, and more. Please visit choicehotels.com for more information.

Sheraton has the following pet policy on their website:  "Dogs up to 40 pounds are allowed and will be provided with a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Dog Bed along with a pet welcome pack that provides information and supplies useful during their stay. Guests must sign a waiver at check-in and pets cannot be left in the room without supervision. The hotel reserves the right to charge for additional cleaning or damage caused by animals."  I have never seen a Westie over 40 lbs, so it would be safe to say that Westies are welcome at Sheratons.  Please visit StarwoodHotels.com for more information.

Riding in cars with Westies

Like most dogs, Westies like to go for rides.  They particularly like putting their heads out the window to feel the wind in their cute little Westie faces.  However, if you do take your Westie in the car, please don't leave them in a hot car.
