Good Sam Names Top Pet RV Parks
The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory announced its list of Top Pet-Friendly RV Parks for 2014. These select RV parks stand out for amenities and special services tailored to owners of pets, according to an announcement from Good Sam.
These parks offer facilities ranging from dog runs to pet washing areas, and some hand out free treats to canines upon check-in.
Highlighted Features of the top parks include:
• A number RV parks feature fenced-in dog runs on their property – a boon to travelers who want to give their furry passengers a place to run after idle travel time. Also offered in some parks are trails for pet walking.
• As a gesture of welcome to pet owners, some RV parks offer free treats and toys to pets traveling in RVs.
• Among the most luxurious pet amenities are fenced-in dog-wash stations, with stainless-steel sinks, soap and warm water available to wash pets.
According the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), more than 50% of RV travelers bring pets on their travels. The RV industry's suppliers and manufacturers have made an effort to accommodate mobile pets with products that include collapsible pet window cages to special tie-downs for dogs built into RVs.
Among pet owners who take their animals on the road, 78% bring dogs, 15% travel with cats and the remaining pet owners travel with birds or other small pets.
