BringFido.com, a directory of pet-friendly hotels and travel destinations, has launched a new events database, available at http://www.bringfido.com/events.htm . This database lists dog-friendly events, either by month or by state.
The front page of the database lists featured events, but not all events — to see those click on the name of the month. Beneath the list of featured events is a US map — click on a state to see all events for the year. (Some states don’t have many events — North Carolina has one, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wyoming don’t have any, etc.) Event listings show event name, date, and location.
Individual event pages (click on the name of the event) provide more information including contact information, cost, and a detailed description of the event. And of course BringFido will also provide a list of dog-friendly hotels in the area of the event.
If you know of a dog-friendly event you’re invited to submit it at http://www.bringfido.com/eventsubmit.htm . While you’re at the site you can also check out a dog-oriented link list and an aggregated list of pet policies for airline travel.
This is a fairly new directory; I don’t even own a dog and I can think of a bunch of events that could be added. Note to self: try to hook these folks up with the Flyball tournaments list…
