The RV park where we’re staying in Marietta doesn’t have an off-leash area or even a field nearby where Laddy can run around, so finding a dog park is important. We found two within a few miles, one with bark/mulch (yuck!) and one with grass. Here’s my review of the grassy dog park on BringFido.com: http://www.bringfido.com/attraction/2855/#reviews.
While on Key West, we found a dog park near a beach, so we decided to give Laddy a break from being in the car for a bit. There was lots of shade as it was quite a warm day (low 80s in mid-January!!). Here’s my review of the park: http://www.bringfido.com/attraction/11509/#reviews
We were hoping to find a dog beach while here in Panama City Beach, but there’s only one beach where they allow dogs at all, and they must be leashed. But, we found a really nice dog park in town. Here’s my review of it on BringFido.com: http://www.bringfido.com/attraction/9931/#reviews
We’ve stayed in Morgan Hill, CA twice and both times have taken Laddy to the Morgan Hill Dog Park several times during our stay. He loves it there. It has grass, shade, water, lots of other dogs, in all a great dog park!

While staying in Chehalis we looked for nearby dog parks, as we always do, and found a nice one in Centralia, just a few miles away. The Fort Borst Park is heavily forested so the whole park is nice and cool and shady. The dog park is in one of the few places with some sun but it still had plenty of shade. Laddy enjoyed it! We did have to leave early once as a guy showed up with a friendly German Shepard, but he kept jumping up on Laddy and Laddy really doesn’t like that and would get aggressive on the other dog. We were a bit surprised at the aggressiveness in him and decided to leave. Oh well, dogs will be dogs!

While here in Montana visiting the Glacier National Park, we found a nearby dog park. It’s in Whitefish, just a few minutes away from our RV Park and is called the Hugh Rogers W.A.G. Park (W.A.G. = Whitefish Animal Group). Laddy had a great time running around with the other dogs there!

While in Cody we found a great dog park very close to our RV park. We took Laddy every day! It’s on a lake and has lake access so he had fun getting in the water when he got hot from running around with the other dogs. Here’s my review on Bringfido.com: http://www.bringfido.com/attraction/10807/#reviews
We’ve taken Laddy a couple of times to a dog park in Grass Valley – it’s about 30 minutes from where we’re staying, but is the closest dog park. It’s at Condon Park and it’s GREAT.
Here’s a link to my review of it.
After being on the road for several months, Jeff and I have realized we can’t recall names of restaurants we enjoyed, some details about RV Parks that we might want to remember if we come to an area again, etc.
And, we’ve realized that while online review websites such as Yelp.com and BringFido.com have some good information, we find some dog parks and good places to visit through other avenues such as neighbors at an RV Park or just driving by and saying “Oh, look…!”
So, we thought we’d better start documenting the good and the bad about places we’ve been. We’ll focus on RV Parks, dog parks and restaurants as we need those everywhere, but we’ll also include local attractions such as museums, state and county parks, etc that we visit and either like or want to avoid next time.
When we first got Laddy he was very unsure of putting his feet into water – what a long way he’s come!! We took him to a beach in Avila Beach that a neighbor had said dogs could go off-leash, and boy did he have a great time!! There were several other dogs catching a frisbee in the surf and he joined right in – got very wet but had a blast!
I’m hoping to upload a video of him playing in the water.
