FitDog Friday: Traveling Edition

Today is FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and Peggy's Pet Place to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!) and to help combat pet obesity. Join in every Friday by linking up or visiting the blogs in the Hop. And be sure to comment and you'll be entered into a giveaway for great FitDog prizes!

We encourage you to join our Blog Hop by sharing your own FitDog adventures every Friday. And we want you to know it can be as simple as a photo, a quick tip or just some type of activity you like to do with your dog.  Then link up your posts to our Blog Hop below to share the inspiration! 

Our post today is about the adventure we're looking forward to this weekend as we head to Chicago for Mother's Day and  Rocco's first trip on an airplane!

Rocco has been preparing for this trip since he was a young pup... not too long ago! ... by getting comfortable with his travel bag and learning good manners!

While we're in Chicago I'm hoping to introduce Rocco to the beautiful walks along the lakefront and through Lincoln Park that Cosmo and I enjoyed so much.

We hope to see some of our bloggie pals in Chicago too! Stay tuned for more fun and adventure!

    1. We love lakefront walks and the park too. Check out the dog-friendly boat cruises too off Wacker Dr. at the Chicago River.

  3. There's so many great blogging dogs in the Chicago area you could have a great meetup...You're lucky that Rocco can fly with you...At 20# I don't know that Gizmo would be able to and there's no way I would have him fly as "freight" so our travels have to be by car. Have a great time

  8. Good luck to Rocco on his first plane trip! What kind of manners did you work on? I haven't taken Chester or Gretel on a plane yet and I am afraid they would cause a commotion.

    1. I've taken him around in his travel bag a lot, encouraging him to stay quiet! (not always easy). He also knows the basic sit, stay, down, come etc. and back up and "go bag" which helps him get in the travel bag and stay there!
