The Dog Lover’s Guide to Travel: Best Destinations, Hotels, Events, and Advice to Please Your Pet — and You
By Kelly E. Carter
(National Geographic, $17)

Author Kelly E. Carter explains in the introduction to her guidebook that woofers are now welcome at many tourist attractions in the U.S. and Canada. Organized by region, the guide lists hotels, restaurants and recreational options that range from classic (a stroll through Savannah, Ga.’s 22 squares, some of which are equipped with doggy drinking fountains) to rad (a canine surfing competition in San Diego) to “the ultimutt in pampering” — a chef in the Hamptons who creates “mutt-tinis.” Tips from local “pet parents” and practical suggestions, like ­applying sunblock to Fido’s ears at the beach, round out this handy bow-wow Baedeker.
