Guest Blog: Aurora James of Dog Etiquette

Not long ago, I was contacted about hosting a guest blog.  Hmmmm, a guest blog?  Interesting.  A blog about dogs?  I thought to myself, this entire website is about Route 66, how can I justify a blog about dogs?  Then I remembered several of my Route 66 friends travel with their 4 legged companions, which most refer to as their family.  Therefore, the following guest blog was written by Aurora James.

 

Hitting the Open Road with Fido: Camping Tips for Your Route 66 Adventure

Route 66, the Main Street of America, the Mother Road — whatever you prefer to call it, this infamous road is sure to provide plenty of adventure. Whether you load up the car, van, RV, or motorcycle, your pooch will surely love to ride along too. However, the road stretches as far as the eye can see — over 2,000 miles to be exact — so you’ll be making several pit stops along the way, including setting up camp for the night. If you are looking for something new and exciting to try with your pooch, Route 66 just might be the ticket. Before you hit the road, check out this infographic for resources and tips to make this a trip that will leave Fido barking for more.
