As a reader and fan of FIDO Friendly Magazine for awhile now, I thought it was about time that I share my enjoyment with you all. I've always been a lover of magazines; I love to get the glossy glory in the mail, flip through each page slowly and just get lost in the content. FIDO Friendly is no different, I love that it combines my love for magazines with my passion for dogs and travel. I've kept every issue of the magazine too, it's not a throw-out-once-you-read-it magazine, it's a manual of sorts to all things dog-friendly.
You know what I get out of it now, but taking a closer look at the February/March issue, you'll see what's in it for you too!
In each issue of the magazine you'll find a lot of different kinds of articles about home life with Fido. In the current issue read about home design with Fido in mind; what the rich and famous are doing to spoil their dogs; and a then and now look at how life with dogs has morphed through the years. This issue also has a great feature about buying a Fido-friendly car, so if you are in the market for a new ride, read this article first.
As one of the leading magazine sources in the dog industry, FIDO Friendly shares a ton of great advice each issue. The February/March issue, in particular, is packed with useful advice from adopting a dog and alternative therapy to planning for the kennel and veterinarian health advice. There is one article in particular that I found totally intriguing about letting your dog help guide you to a loving relationship. It's the 3rd installment from a fun series written by author of the book Leashes and Lovers: What Your Dog Can Teach You About Love, Life and Happiness, which is a very interesting take on dogs assisting with humans finding love relationships. In addition to that great article, there is a handy step-by-step guide for readying your dog for his first kennel or doggie daycare trip.
FIDO Friendly might be a magazine, but it's also a great take-with-you road and travel guide. Whether you are in the planning phase, vacation daydreaming phase, or are already headed out the door, FIDO Friendly will help guide you to all things dog-friendly, all over the country.
Recently the magazine asked readers to submit their choice for the best dog-friendly locales, and in the current issue you can see the Top 50 Fido-Friendly Destinations. That information really comes in handy when you are looking to plan your next vacation with your pup by your side.
That's not all when it comes to traveling with Fido. The magazine also spotlights Fido Destinations in each issue (this issue highlights 9 places in 5 states). Diving deep into hotels, restaurants, and things to do while you are in town with the emphasis on traveling with your dog. The issue also has a feature on the Top 10 Luxe Hotels (pet-friendly of course) - the creme de la creme of upscale hotels. These hotels cater more to the dogs than to the humans (ok, almost), with doggy spas, specialized menus, pet sitting, magnificent off-leash areas and plush beds. If you happen to go to one of these hotels, feel free to let us stowaway in your suitcases; my dog will lick your face in appreciation.
Obviously reading the articles is entertainment in itself, but the magazine is full of other fun and entertaining tidbits. Games, trivia, book reviews and my favorite...themed reader photos. This issue has a photo montage of dogs showing off their tongues. In addition, the magazine offers contests and giveaways, which are also tied to their blog.
If you are reading the magazine, there is one thing we know for sure, you love dogs (who doesn't really?)! The magazine, in addition to being devoted to dog-friendly travel, gives readers awesome stories all about dogs. Anything from heartwarming personal adoption stories to informative breed lineage and beyond. In the current issue, there is even a fun article about dogs falling in love. It must be true what they say: you can learn something new every day.
Whether you spend your time at home or traveling the country, this magazine has something for you (and your dog). You might just discover some new things to do with your furry friend, right in your home town!
