    About pet-friendly vacations where they accept dogs.
    Are you planning a vacation and don't know what to do with your doggy (perrito)? Did you arrange for someone to take care of your pet and now the plans have fallen through at the last minute? Now you don't know where to leave him?
    [Here's an idea to save the day!] It is very possible that very near the place that you are going to visit, there are hotels that accept doggy guests.
    There is no excuse to leave to your best friend at home. Take him along with you. The only thing that you have to do is to call to the hotel before arriving so that you can learn about the hotel rules concerning dogs. If your doggy is not housebroken, you have to train him before going.
    Another member of the family   Dogs are "a very important member of the family, and very few vacationers want to leave them in the house or in a kennel," says Martin Schwalbaum, proprietor of Fourpeaks Adirondack Camps & Guest Barn, a pet-friendly vacation place in upstate New York.
    Kim Smith, of the hotel Inn Suites in Tucson, Arizona, agrees. "The dogs are part of the family, therefore hotels should have rooms that accept dogs, to permit their owners to take without having to leave them at home. As long as the owners pick up the doggy poo after their dog, there should be no problem," she adds.
    CLICK HERE to meet Your Adirondack Guide. Dogs behave better than children.   There are hotels that prefer dogs to children.  This is the case with Fourpeaks. According to Schwalbaum, "the majority of families have dogs as mascots and in many cases they take the place of children." Dogs are convenient, because "they can be trained easily so that they obey." In fact, according to him, he may convert his Fourpeaks cabins as a center of holidays "only for dogs." And this is natural, because one of the invitations that Schwalbaum offers to his guests is getting to know his dog George, a playful Mini Golden [who tells them all about the vacation opportunities at Fourpeaks for folks vacationing with their dogs.] These cabins are right on 20 miles of trails and paths so that the dogs can run and the River AuSable for the ones that want to take a dip.
    At Fourpeaks you need the cage ONLY IF YOU LEAVE YOUR DOG ALONE WHEN YOU GO OUT. Avoid bad behavior.  Some hotels emphasize that it is not possible to leave your dog unattended. That's the case with Crestwood Suites, in Trimming, Florida, near Disney World. If your dog is left alone and unattended, you do not only leave it, you will see surcharges when you are going to pay the account. So...
    Follow the rules.  Be courteous in the hotel, with the personnel and the other guests. Leash your dog so you can control it in case people get too close. Remember that in the hotel there will be people who do not have a dog or who do not take so well to dogs as you do. Do not leave your dog unattended if you are not sure that he will be tolerated without your supervision. A dog that barks constantly could be reason for bad feelings from the other guests and can generate complaints. ALWAYS clean the poo-poo that your dog does.
    Dog free or jailed?   Some hotels require that the dog remains within a cage when it is in the room. Others, allow that it runs outside off lead and within the room. So that "guests feel as if they were at home, as if the pet lived in an apartment," explains Odil Jimenez, of Towne Place Suites, located in Miami, Florida. If for example you want to leave your doggy behind when you go out, some hotels request that you put them in a cage and that a special card in the door is placed indicating that there is a dog inside, informs Byron Perryman, manager of the Monterey Beach Hotel.

    Hoteles perrunos
    Hoteles que aceptan perros.

    ¿Estás planificando irte de vacaciones y no sabes que hacer con tu perrito? ¿Querías dejárselo a alguien para que lo cuidara y ahora los planes cambiaron? ¿Que no sabes dónde dejarlo? Pues es muy posible que muy cerca del lugar que vas a visitar, haya hoteles que los acepten y hasta ofrezcan cuidados especiales. No hay excusas para dejar a tu mejor amigo en casa, llévalo contigo. Lo único que tienes que hacer es llamar al hotel antes de llegar para que enterarte de las normas. Si tu perrito no es de los santitos, puede que tengas que entrenarlo antes de ir.
    Otro miembro de la familia. Los perros son “un miembro muy importante de la familia”, y son pocas las personas que se van de vacaciones, y quieren dejarlos en la casa o en una jaula, dice Martin Schwalbaum, propietario de Fourpeaks Adirondack Camps, unas cabañas al noreste de Nueva York. Kim Smith, del hotel Inn Suites en Tucson, Arizona, está de acuerdo. “Los perros son parte de la familia, por eso los hoteles deben tener habitaciones que acepten perros, para permitirle a sus dueños salir sin tener que dejarlos en casa”. Después que limpien el desorden que haga su perro, no debe haber problemas, añade.
    “Los perros se portan mejor que los niños”  Hay hoteles que hasta prefieren a los perros sobre los niños. Este es el caso de Fourpeaks. Según Schwalbaum, “la mayoría de las familias tienen perros como mascotas que a menudo toman el lugar de los niños”. Y son convenientes, porque “se pueden entrenar fácilmente para que obedezcan”. De hecho, según él, puede que conviertan sus cabañas en un centro de vacaciones “sólo para perros”. Y es de esperar, porque una de las invitaciones que hace Schwalbaum a sus huéspedes es ir a conocer a su perro Tramp, un Cocker Spaniel. En estas cabañas hay 20 millas de senderos disponibles para que los perros corran y el Río AuSable para los que quieran darse un chapuzón.
    Evita que se porte mal.  Algunos hoteles enfatizan que no se pueden dejar a los canes desatendidos. Así es Crestwood Suites, en Orlando, Florida, cerca de Disney World. Si tu perro es de los que hace de las suyas cuando no estás cerca, no lo dejes sólo, no querrás ver recargos cuando vayas a pagar la cuenta. Así que... ...
    Sigue las normas.  Seé cortés con en hotel, el personal y con los otros inquilinos. Amarra a tu perro con un cordón que puedas sujetar para controlarlo en caso de que se emocione demasiado. Recuerda que en el hotel puede haber personas que no tengan perro o que no se lleven tan bien con ellos como tú. No dejes al perro desatendido si no estás seguro de que se va a comportar sin tu supervisión. Un perro que ladre constantemente podría ser motivo de disgusto para los otros huéspedes y puede generar quejas. SIEMPRE limpia los desastres que haga tu perro.
    ¿Libre o encarcelado?  Algunos hoteles requieren que el perro permanezca dentro de la jaula cuando esté dentro del cuarto. Otros, permiten que corra a sus anchas fuera y dentro de la habitación. Para que “las personas se sientan como si estuvieran en su casa, como si se viviera en un apartamento, explica Odil Jiménez, de Towne Place Suites, ubicado en Miami, Florida. Si por ejemplo quieres salir y dejarlo, algunos hoteles piden que los pongan en jaula y que se coloque una tarjeta especial en la puerta indicando que hay un perro adentro, informa Byron Perryman, gerente del Monterey Beach Hotel.

    CLICK HERE to meet Your Adirondack Guide. Dear Visitor,   This page is a translation of an old Univision Spanish language webpage that is no longer available online. CLICK HERE for credits.
    Aside from the fact that I was interviewed for the page I saved it and updated it with this note for advice to my visitors when they are "on the road."
    I am a lot and it can be a scary experience. Need to stop and rest, grab a meal. But where will they take you with your doggie, where you, the dog and the other hotel guests can be comfortable and happy?
    My personal choice is Motel 6. It's cheap and there is never a question. I don't bother to state that I have my pet with me. If the door is by my car I just walk George in. Inside door? No problem. Desk clerks and guests have never blinked an eye. Many want to stop and pet. Look at www.motel6.com/promotions/pets.aspx read the rules (same common sense rules as at Fourpeaks) and find locations. I carry the current Motel 6 directory with me when I travel, right along with my driving glasses and the map or MapQuest printout.
    Google "pet-friendly motel hotel "chain"" and explore this vacation driving solution yourself. But you can't beat Motel 6. I hope there's some on your road!
    Sincerely yours,
    Martin (Your Adirondack Guide)
    P.S. More than one dog? Problem. Motel 6 says, "One well-behaved pet per room." You'll just have to drive all the way here to Fourpeaks. Never a limit. I just booked two dog sled teams with 10 doggies each. OK.
