Whether it’s for business or pleasure, venturing out with a furry friend can be extremely fun but also extremely overwhelming if you can’t find the perfect place to house both you and your companion.

To make things a bit easier for your next vacation or work trip, we have compiled a few apps and websites that will hopefully help you find just what you’re looking for the next time you need accommodations.


GoPetFriendly is a one-stop-shop for all your pet traveling needs.

Did you know Comfort Inn Summerville and Woodlands Inn are just two of at least four pet-friendly hotels in Summerville? Montreaux Bar and Grill also allows pets to dine with their owners. The website provides each hotel’s pet policies as well, so you can be sure the hotel accommodates your needs before booking your stay.

GoPetFriendly also has a Road Trip Planner, which allows you to type in your starting point and final destination to see all the pet-friendly amenities along the route. If you’re traveling with a furry friend, GoPetFriendly is a good place to start.


BringFido.com is another option. It is both a website and an app that can be downloaded to an iOS phone, which finds pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, parks, beaches, dog events and more. BringFido works similarly as GoPetFriendly. Type in a city, state and country, and BringFido provides the hotel’s location, prices, availability and more. If you plan on traveling by air, check out the website to look at different airline policies and see which airline accommodates you and your pooch the best. The app is only compatible with iOS phones. It is free on iTunes and the website is free to all users.

The app provides contact information, office hours, the location of the vet and the distance from your current location, as well as the language(s) the vet speaks.

With this app, you can have peace of mind while traveling on a new adventure with your best friend.
