A family vacation may not be complete without your furry friend. Although humans get excited about packing a bag and leaving home for a week or so, dogs may have a harder time adjusting to something new. They are unsure where you are going or what is going on, so making them comfortable is a top priority. Try these products to ease the stress of your traveling fur friend.
The first thing to do may be common sense: Bring their favorite toys and blanket. A little piece of home will make their anxiety lessen as the familiar smells are swaddled around them. A bone or chew toy is great to help ease tension and allows dogs to release endorphins. A great option are No-Hide Chews, as they are easily digestible, do not contain chemicals and last a long time to avoid a nervous chewer biting hotel furniture.
Second, provide a space for your pet to use the bathroom. If you are on a higher floor of a rental property or hotel and don’t want to make the trek down the elevator every few hours, try Bark Potty. This all-natural and disposable box contains tree bark that conceals odor from bacteria. Travelers can set this up in their hotels, campers, rental property or homes to give their pets a heavenly space to do their thing. The natural smell of the tree bark attracts dogs to the box, making it an eco-friendly alternative to using regular potty pads made of plastics. Easy and lightweight, Bark Potty gives your pet a dash of luxury while on the road.
Lastly, bring water everywhere you go. A nervous dog tends to get thirsty quickly. By providing a panting pet with some liquid relief, they won’t feel the need to drag you to the nearest puddle to gulp down dirty water. The lesotc foldable water bottle is a two-in-one bottle and bowl. The top flips upward into a bowl just big enough for some sips of water. By squeezing the bottle, the water travels up into the bowl. Any remaining water your pet doesn’t drink gets sucked back into the container, leaving no wasted water.

Though the Chicago area has been my home for decades, the view from the Water Tower Suite on the 26th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago made me gasp. I had admired Chicago’s dramatic skyline many times, but never from this angle. Through expansive windows, the skyscrapers of 900 N. Michigan Ave. and the John Hancock Center, now named 875 North Michigan Avenue, rose to my right. Far below, the landmark Chicago Water Tower nestled in a ring of trees. One of the few survivors of the Great Chicago Fire, a turning point in the city’s history being remembered on its 150th anniversary in 2021, the Gothic Revival relic resembled a fairy-tale castle in a children’s playset.

There’s an aspirational rustic chic/farm-to-table restaurant genre often associated with Northern California’s wine country. When you drive down the main street of Napa, Sonoma or any of the other towns, it appears there are as many of them as there are vineyards. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this genre, as the quality of the food is consistent and ambitious chefs earnestly endeavor to elevate home-style dishes to a higher standard.
