    We found a great dog-friendly beach in Panama City Beach, FL. It is across from Margaritaville at Pier Park. You have to keep your dog leashed, but we had a wonderful time last week when we took our puppy, Murphy, to the beach for his first sand and surf experience.

    The Australian Government amended the Australian Food Standards Code last October, to now provide “food business operators with a choice to either permit dogs in their outdoor dining areas or prohibit them from the area”. However, the national law does not prohibit conditions being set by local governments, but in general dogs are being permitted in outdoor areas throughout the country. Here is some more information…

    A Gold Coast Australia Couple is challenging the Queensland ban on dogs at outdoor patios.

Australia, over the years, has lagged behind others. But things are changing.

    This is a great holiday house on the Bluff with magnificant sea views. Situated close to the beach, it offers a great way to relax on the Bellarine Peninsula. BELLARINE SEAVIEW is a comfortable family friendly holiday home, for your to enjoy as a couple, a family, or with friends (yes, they are dog friendly too)! I truly recommend it.

  8. I just wanted to recommend this fantastic in home training service in the Melbourne area because I cannot rave about them enough. They were very friendly and good with my dog and I was impressed with the instant results.

  12. Hi there,
    Please let travelers know that dogs are most welcome at my B&B. The master bedroom has French doors to the secure courtyard and yard and when guests go out they can leave their dogs in my own backyard where I happily keep an eye on them. Well behaved dogs are welcome inside.
