Biz That Gives

Win a weekend holiday with your dog by sending your best dog-friendly travel tip!



  • Baymont by Wyndham is sponsoring a search for the best pup-friendly travel advice.

Do you have any “ulti-mutt” advice for traveling with a dog? To honor your pets, Baymont by Wyndham has sponsored a countrywide hunt for the best pup-friendly travel advice.

According to an ASPCA poll, more than 23 million American families got a pet during the pandemic. Many first-time pet owners are now learning how to take their furry pets on their next vacation with them. Fortunately, Baymont is here to make their trip planning a little less “ruff.”

There are several things to consider while arranging a trip, according to David Unger, brand leader and vice president of Operations at Baymont by Wyndham. It might be overwhelming to add a pet to the mix, especially for the first time—but it doesn’t have to be.

“At Baymont, we want to make travel easy, especially when our furry friends are involved. It’s why we offer no-cost perks like dog treats and water bowls at our front desks. This initiative builds on those efforts, helping ensure our guests—the two or four-legged kind—have a great trip, even before they arrive.”

The 10 best recommendations will be featured in Baymont by Wyndham’s upcoming pet-friendly travel planner, which will be released later this year, along with a photo of each winning dog.

Each proud pup’s parents will receive two complimentary nights at a Wyndham Rewards hotel of their choice, as well as a free one-year upgrade to Wyndham Rewards Diamond membership, which includes benefits such as suite upgrades, early check-in, late checkout, free WiFi, rental car upgrades, and more.

Do you think you’ve got what it takes to be top of the list? Fur parents are invited to email [email protected] with their best pup-friendly travel tip in 100 words or fewer, as well as two high-resolution images of their pup—one travel-themed photo and one headshot.
