travelling with 3 golden retrievers

We are retiring to Bucerias in October and are travelling with 3 goldens. We are driving from Ontario Canada and as of today am having a terrible time finding pet friendly accommodations. (3 of them doesn't help).

Does anyone have any positive experiences or feedback?

Also at this point we are considering hauling a covered trailer with our personal stuff (household stuff) Does anyone have any feedback on shipping via containers.

Any input will be much appreciated

we travel to and fro from Toronto each winter with our pets (tho ours were 2 cats), we left them in the van overnight in cooler temperatures but once we hit Mexico we have to fast track, tho overnight in Saltilla was still cool enough for the animals to be comfortable, we usually did Reynosa to PV in the one day and its a LONG drive, we always did the entire trip in less than 4 days because of our animals. Would think even pet friendly accommodations might find 3 large dogs too much. Our biggest concern was finding accommodations with secure parking outside our units because of our animals on board. This year we are up to 5 cats and got an RV so we can travel comfortably and not kill ourselves rushing, also leave our pets in A/C comfort allowing us to finally enjoy the trip. One concern we had at the border, we were told no more than 2 animals, so would check it out.

hope this is of some help

I love Golden Retrievers and belong to a GR forum where I copied this site from and maybe you might be able to find pet friendly hotels at least in your travels through the US. It's bringfido.com

We have 2 GR's and I couldn't imagine not ever having one! Good luck with your travels.

Hi Sandi: Re: Dogs. I would really recommend you contact Sue and/or Phil Drexler Price of Pie-in-the-Sky. For years they commuted back and forth from the Bay Area with two yellow labs and a nice old rottweiler (hence 3 dogs). They went down the coastal road from Nogales, but they used to be able to find some places where they could at least sneak the dogs in. Might have some concrete suggestions. Good luck!
