Dog-friendly travel goes high tech and luxury

Pet-friendly travel has emerged as one of the hottest trends in the tourism industry, with a growing number of pet owners planning to take their furry companions along for the ride (or flight), according to new research from the University of Surrey published in the Journal of Vacation. The hospitality sector has responded by offering an array of pet-friendly accommodations and amenities, from basic offerings like treats, beds, and bowls to extravagant luxuries such as gourmet dog menus and spa treatments.
