We are hopefully going here with frank for a trip in the late summer/early fall.
Pet Friendly Hocking Hills Cabins
I agree with everyone, it's so hard to trust anyone with your baby, especially with all their issues like breathing, heat, exercise limitations, and allergies.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
So TOTALLY true!!
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
I was also going to suggest the Florida Keys and St Augustine, Florida. Both are very dog friendly cities and beaches. For big city travel I like any of the Kimpton hotels. They're super nice, clean, great locations and they are all dog friendly.
I haven't taken an international vacation since getting Ruckus and I'm looking for someone I trust to watch him, but it's a work in progress. So we like to take roadtrips to the mountains or the beach. I look on different sites like Airbnb, homeaway.com (better for beach rentals) and vrbo.com (better for cabins) and look for dog friendly rentals. I generally email the owner and make sure a bulldog is ok. I also like to ask around if friends of friends are renting their timeshare or vacation house. People are more likely not to charge you a deposit of they know you and trust that your dog isn't destructive.
I'd like to take Ruckus camping, but first is have to convince my boyfriend to sleep outside! Haha. He isn't the outdoorsy type but has branched out for me.
We rarely saw anyone on the beach. It was just perfect.
Here's some pics..

All of the St Augustine beaches are dog friendly at all times as long as the dogs add leashed. They're lax about the leashes if it's off season and no one is around. There are doggy waste bags at almost all of the free parking lots -- freeee beach parking! Living in DC I'm like free??? Nothing is free! Exile silly not parking.
St. Augustine is also super dog friendly in terms of restaurants, most will allow your pups on their patio and fawn over them. 2 of my favorite dog friendly establishments are about 20-30 minutes South of St Augustine in Flagler Beach. Snack Jacks is right on the beach and allows dogs outside -- it's a little divey but delicious. Also, Flagler Fish Company had the best fish dip. Flagler beaches aren't as dog friendly, only during certain moths and certain hours.
Ugh, i have a friend coming to watch mine from thurs - sunday and i'm having a fit already. this is the first time she's watched them and i know they are going to take advantage of her LOL. i'm so nervous.
We drive through Flagler Beach, each time we go to Florida (we like taking A1A.)
I love the area, so laid back. We've taken Blue to the beach there as well. No one seemed to mind.
We were considering a property in Flagler Beach, but the reality is, we wouldn't get much use out of it.
Maybe when we retire..
