Good Morning America featured pet travel expert Kelly E. Carter, Founder of The Jet Set Pets, and her new book The Dog Lover’s Guide to Travel in an entertaining and informative segment about new ways to vacation with your pooch.
Dog-friendly cultural attractions such as museums and live theater, doggie bakeries and luxury hotels that cater to four-legged guests were featured. The taped segment was shot in dog-friendly San Francisco, where Kelly and her longhair Chihuahua Lucy took GMA contributor Becky Worley on a mini-tour of the City by the Bay. From Yappy Hour at the Galleria Park Hotel in SF’s Financial Center to a cruise on the Blue & Gold Fleet San Francisco to a side-by-side massage with Shelah Barr of Happy Hounds Massage, viewers saw what an exciting time humans and their hounds could have when visiting beautiful San Francisco, just one of the 75 great destinations in the U.S. and Canada to vacation with a dog that is featured in the book.
