Dog-owners understand the valuable companionship a dog can bring. The canine has served as “man’s best friend” for almost 15,000 years. The bond grows stronger with each passing year. And long trips away from one another can not only cause stress on owner but also to the best friend. But that stress is easily avoided with the right research.

Instead of leaving your dog at an expensive kennel, why not let him hit the road with you? Easier said than done, right? Don’t worry. While everyone is out exploring America, dog-owners have to be a little more creative with their destinations. Check out these national parks for a dog-friendly vacation.
