How To Have An Elevated Vacation With Just You & Your Dog

Matt Kroll/Bustle

Think about it: Dogs are the perfect travel companion. Sure, they may not be able to help with navigation, but they’re loyal, and beyond excited to explore a new city. In fact, the up-for-anything attitude of a canine is probably something all human travelers could embrace more! So why not consider making your next vacation all about the two of you?

Of course, finding a dog-friendly destination complete with quality food options and fun outdoor activities requires a little extra research. To help you plan an elevated vacation for you and your pup, Bustle partnered with Castor & Pollux®, the maker of America's #1 organic pet food brand, to ask food blogger Skyler Bouchard and her four-legged BFF, Poppy, how they spent a weekend in Telluride, Colorado. This duo had everything planned out, from where to stay, what fun local activities to do, and even how to make sure they were both getting the highest quality food available over the course of their travel.

Are you starting to feel a bit inspired to plan a getaway with your furry best friend? Read on to find out how Skyler and Poppy pulled off their trip, and then start planning one for yourself!
