CAN PET OWNERS ENJOY THE PINOT IF FIDO HAS TO STAY HOME?

NEW GUIDE LISTS “DOG FRIENDLY” VINEYARDS, RECREATION SPOTS FOR FALL WINE COUNTRY TRAVEL

“Dog Friendly” Vineyard Listings, Tips for Vineyard Dog -Etiquette Are New Information Resources on PetFriendlyTravel.com – Website Linking Pet Owners, Pet Friendly Lodgings

Hollywood, CA, October 18, 2006 -- What can be more enjoyable on a crisp fall day than a vineyard tour and wine tasting? For dog owners – knowing they can bring their pet along can be priceless – especially when traveling far from home.

PetFriendlyTravel.com, a leading web destination for pet owners seeking travel and vacation lodgings that welcome animals, has added new listings of “dog friendly” wineries. The feature, plus Top Tips for Wine Country Doggie-Etiquette, builds on PetFriendlyTravel.com’s commitment to provide comprehensive information resources that meet the needs of traveling pet owners. The website already provides listings of “Dog Beaches” and rules for pet access to National Parks.

Tracey Thompson, pet travel expert and founder of PetFriendlyTravel.com, said, “With two-thirds of pet owners typically bringing their animals along on leisure travel, knowing where to find welcoming recreation facilities is essential to their enjoyment. As a dog owner, I know how much it means to bring your pet along for the day – and not have to kennel or leave them behind. But it is also critical, as a responsible owner, to know in advance where our pets will be welcome, and what rules apply for their access.”

The new listings for Pet Friendly Wineries can be found on the website’s Activities and Attractions page, http://www.petfriendlytravel.com/?page=activities , with more than a dozen wineries in four states and their individual policies on doggie visitors.

As increasing numbers of family pets take to the road with their owners this fall, Thompson has also posted on her site Top Tips for Wine Country Doggie-Etiquette:

Top Tips for Wine Country Doggie-Etiquette:
1. Learn each winery’s rules in advance, and follow them.
2. Other visitors may be less comfortable around dogs -- keep yours leashed at all times.
3. If your pet misbehaves, be prepared to leave the winery immediately.
4. Dogs and wine don’t mix.
5. Always clean up after your dog.
