While Jasper is not too keen on camping, he does love traveling with his people. In the Toyota Tundra pick-up truck that is our travel vehicle, his preferred travel spot is the center console situated between the two of us. He is leashed to keep him safe and his view includes the road ahead as we motor down the highway.
We don’t take him kayaking any more as he is a bit anxious and has actually jumped ship (or kayak to be specific) to swim with the gators. Not a good time!! But we do take Jasper bicycling in his bike trailer and he definitely enjoys walking around the campground, meeting other dogs and their people.
When we plan a trip with Jasper, we use the Bring Fido website to learn about the community and the dog-friendly opportunities that are available. This site lists: restaurants, hotels, dog-parks, attractions, and campgrounds that welcome dogs when accompanied by their owners. It also provides up to date references for services you might need such as veterinary clinics, grooming and dog sitting. We have used several times and have found that it is reliable as well as useful in providing good information for planning our trip.
As we travel with Jasper, we will provide listings of places he has seen and been along with reviews. If you have places to recommend, please share.

There are some great sites and attractions listed on Bring Fido. We will provide listings of Jasper’s Travel Spots on this next adventure.
Bayou Café on River Street– Jasper was able to sit with us on the upstairs side porch where we enjoyed watching the Savannah River roll by. We drank a cold beer, ate some delicious steamed seafood and had great conversation with the other couple on the porch.
Skidaway State Park Trails– Jasper joined us in his bike trailer this morning as we explored the trails in the state park. By using the bike trailer we were able to go a bit farther than a normal walk with him. Nice to find a state park that allows leashed dogs on the trails.
