A recent study names the best destinations in the United States and United Kingdom for travelers who cannot bear to leave dogs behind.

The study from comparethemarket.com analyzes the amount of dog salons, training centers, kennels and parks relative to the total population of a city.

In the United States, Long Beach, California; Mesa, Arizona; Atlanta, Georgia; Sacramento, California; and Seattle, Washington, top the list. Long Beach has 985 dog-training centers, more than 445 kennels and 259 grooming salons. On the East Coast, Atlanta has 65 open parks for dogs and owners to explore.

Rounding out the top 25 ranked cities in the United States are Chicago, Tucson and Baltimore.  Across the United States, different destinations offer a number of activities for owners and dogs to participate in, from dog yoga to nose work, where dogs learn how to sniff out different smells.

In the United Kingdom, Nottingham takes the No. 1 spot. Liverpool, Hull, Birmingham and Edinburgh round out the top five. Wolverhampton, Swindon and Northampton round out the top 25.

In the United Kingdom, sheepdog training, crime scene investigation training and plentiful dog-friendly restaurants make it dog-friendly.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
