Have Dog, Will Travel - Quirky US Pit Stops
From a Beagle-shaped guesthouse to a dog-inspired winery, 10 fun spots worth detouring for.

1

1. Dog Bark Park Inn, Boise, Idaho
A three-story freestanding hotel room in the shape of a Beagle. Enough said. dogbarkparkinn.com

2. Dog Mayor Sunol, California
In 1981, a dog named Bosco was elected mayor in a town just an hour outside San Francisco. Thirty years on, you can visit his animatronic replica at the local bar—lift his leg and he pees beer! boscosbonesandbrew.com

3. Charles M Schulz Museum, Santa Rosa, California
For all things Snoopy. The documentary film is particularly charming; apparently the real life Snoopy loved nothing better than riding in cars. schulzmuseum.com

4. Mutt Lynch Winery Sonoma, California
Canine connoisseurs are welcome at this laid-back vineyard offering Fou Fou Le Blanc Sauvignon (featuring a chi-chi white Poodle on the label), Merlot Over & Play Dead (gruff Bulldog) and a great life motto: Bark Less, Wag More! muttlynchwinery.com

5. Drive-thru tree Leggett, California
Dogs love to pee on trees, humans like to drive through them. My dog Bodie and I actually did the similar Tour-thru Tree three hours north. drivethrutree.com

6. Bobbie The Wonder Dog mural Silverton, Oregon
This is so touching: in 1923 a family were on a road trip in Indiana when they lost their beloved Collie. Broken-hearted, they returned to Oregon without him. Six months later he turned up all scrawny and tattered of paw, having walked nearly 3,000 miles home. What a legend. silvertonor.com

7. Wizard of Oz Museum Wamego, Kansas
Cairn Terrier lovers will find an abundance of Toto memorabilia and cheeky treasures in the gift shop, not to mention Toto’s Tacoz next door. ozmuseum.com

8. Wild West portrait with your dog Breckenridge, Colorado
What can I say? Bodie is such a natural-born outlaw. Breckenridge Old Time Photo, 326 South Main St. Tel: 970 453 4444

9. Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina
If you’ve always felt that you and your dog were “to the manor born,” you have to visit the wondrous Biltmore Estate where you can spend the entire day strolling the elegantly landscaped grounds—8,000 acres complete with fountains, woodlands, and sunflower-trimmed bicycle paths—with a silver-topped walking stick and a monocle, if you fancy. At $59 per person it’s not cheap, but this does include entry to the grand 250-room French chateau and though your dog is not permitted inside, they do have kennels where he can kick back while you are marveling at the priceless artifacts. Afterwards you can dine at Cedric’s Tavern, named for George Vanderbilt’s beloved St Bernard, Heaven. biltmore.com

 

10. AKC Dog Show Many locations throughout the US
Never mind the parade of purebreds, check out the astounding range of doggie beauty products. I got myself a great dogprint salon robe for when I wash Bodie! akc.org
