Dog-Owning RVers Welcome at Many Parks
Dog owners will find a growing list of public places in Texas where they may take their pets.
Many pet owners enjoy traveling with their pets because it is less expensive and there is no concern over leaving them at a kennel.
And, with options ranging from budget-friendly state parks and RV campgrounds to five-star hotels, there are plenty of dog-friendly travel choices, according to a story in the Abilene Reporter-News.
One option is Hidden Valley RV Park in Von Ormy, southwest of San Antonio.
Park operator Teri Blaschke said her guests and their dogs can enjoy walking trails and fishing at private Medio Creek on the property.
Blaschke, who is a dog lover herself, said traveling in an RV is a great way for many of her guests to enjoy traveling, many of whom are snowbirds who come south to escape the winter months up north.
"I would say that 90 percent of the travelers in RVs travel with their pets," Blaschke said. "That seems to be a main reason to choose an RV lifestyle.
"I don't often travel anywhere, but when I do, I have an RV and I do bring my dogs (because) it would be like leaving your kid, and I can't imagine doing it," said Blaschke of her dogs Louie and Dottie.
