The 1st "how to" published on the subject I wrote this book from the love I had for my dogs. I spent many a mile hiking with novice hikers teaching and showing them how much fun it can be hiking with your dog. I was very proud to have my book a runner up for a Maxwell Award (Dog Writers Assoc of America). It has been well rec'd. A Guide To Backpacking With Your Dog came out in 10-92, but the information between the covers is timeless. I hope you enjoy sharing the trails with your four-legged family as much as I have!

The writers of this anthology packed up the dog toys and water dishes and took their pets along. Others were solo travelers who made new canine friends along the road of life. Notable authors include Pico Iyer, Helen Thayer, Gary Paulsen, John Steinbeck, and James Herriot. Recommended by Nicole Fassbender.

On the Road Again with Man's Best Friend is the critically acclaimed collection of regional travel guides that offer detailed reviews of the best bed and breakfasts, inns, hotels, and resorts that welcome dogs, as well as fun things to do with them once you arrive.

The Habgoods ask a number of questions and perform extensive research before even considering a lodging for inclusion. They then head out on the road to visit one. Their insiders perspective on each establishment is unmatched, as is their ability to accurately assess the attitude of the staff toward people who travel with their dogs. As a result, readers learn about the best rooms and amenities, the cuisine (for both canines and people), and any intriguing activities on the premises or in the area.

The Habgoods dont depend on paw, diamond, or star ratings. Instead, travelers form their own opinions after reading the detailed two-page descriptions. The Habgoods never accept fees for inclusion into their books, ensuring their assessments remain independent and based on merit.

Their reviews are so personal and detailed that the Los Angeles Times commented that "these aren't just books for dog owners, but any traveler." Moreover, Pamela Brandt of the New York Daily News feels that, "the authors have a far more appealing approach than other animal-friendly accommodation guides: full and very inviting descriptions instead of the usual name/address lists."
