Millions of Americans recognize that dogs are wonderful companions and bring their furry friend along on their travels. Michael Morgan of Seattle is one of them, and he has a very simple rule when it comes to travel: If his dog Myles, a 25-pound Puggle, isn’t welcome, neither is he.
Morgan is among the 62 percent of Americans who own at least one pet, according to the Humane Society of the United States, and thanks to the collective $50 billion they spend annually on their four-legged family members, destinations once off limits now welcome well-behaved pets.

So whether you’re planning a scenic fall color tour, a holiday sojourn to relatives, or a summer road trip, Chevrolet is sharing these tips to make your travels more pet-friendly.
