It’s here! The 2016 Best City for Pet Travelers contest sponsored by Go Pet Friendly. A contest that mirrors “March Madness” where pet parents go head to head for bragging rights about their pet friendly city.


The Boys and I are one of 110 nominees who believe OUR beautiful city #charlestonsc is the best city for pet travelers! #thedoodletruth

Just like the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament, the contest “tips off” today and runs for three weeks #marchmadness

With your votes, and your friends votes – Harley & Jaxson could take this “all the way” and win the championship #adoodlesdream


Here’s the schedule.

March 14th – Opening Round

March 17th – Round of 64

March 21st – Round of 32

March 24th – Sweet Sixteen

March 28th – Elite Eight

March 31st – Final Four

April 4th – Championship

April 6th – Winner Announced

Each round, Harley & Jaxson will share convincing arguments as to why #charesltonsc is more pet friendly than their opponent for that round. They will provide the link for you to vote during each round.

The Boy’s were randomly selected to receive a first round bye and will automatically advance to the second round – they’ll be in the game on Thursday, March 17th!…



As they –

  • brag about Charleston’s 25 pet friendly hotels
  • boast about Charleston’s 40+ pet friendly restaurants
  • bark about Charleston’s 34 pet friendly attractions
  • bite at their competitors one by one #trashtalking #doodlestyle

We’re excited to share all that Charleston’s got to offer a furry four legged friend. So pack your bags and travel with us. You won’t need much because the weather’s always beautiful…


Round 2 opens on March 17th, vote for #charlestonsc

    Can hardly wait to see who Charleston takes down in the next round. And I’m really anxious to see doodle style trash talk. Is that what happens when Queens meets the genteel South? 🙂

    Just now catching up with all my blog-post reading. I had my brother visiting for a while and have spent this past week getting Ducky back to normal. She was stressed out most of the time because there was a “strange” man in her house. Thank goodness for doggie daycare! At least she was able to relax and enjoy herself with her doggie friends during the day.

    I’ll vote in the next rounds, I promise!! Charleston is one of my favorite cities in the world.
