We've got a New Year's Resolution that we think is one RAD idea: travel more with our dogs this year!
Our products are all about getting out without the fuss, which got us thinking, "How can we get out more often, see more places, and do more things with our dog?" The answer: take a look at some of the best travel adventures for dog owners and the canine companions.
So, here is the list of dog-friendly hot-spots we'd like to check out this year! Where's your favorite dog spot? Tell us, so we can share with our fellow Rad Pack!
