Amy and Rod Burkert hopped in their tricked-out Winnebago this weekend and set out with their two best friends in search of the country’s best vacation spots – for people with pets.

The couple’s traveling companions are Ty, a 5-year-old Shar-Pei, and Buster, a 2-year-old German shepherd. And trying to find hotels to accommodate them and their dogs on a fishing trip to Canada two years ago led to a new career path and way of life for the Foster Township couple.

“We sat down that July and started to make travel plans and determined we needed to stay in seven different hotels on our circular road trip. It took me two full days to find the seven hotels we would stay in because of the way the Web sites were,” Amy said.

Web sites that advertised hotels as “pet friendly” didn’t necessarily indicate if they charged extra for pets, if there were weight or breed restrictions or if they allowed two dogs in one room.

“I kept saying to Rod, ‘This is crazy. People aren’t going to take the time to do this. They’ll just take their pet to a kennel because it’s just not easy enough to plan a trip with their pets.’ So, we got home, looked at other Web sites, did more research on what was out there for pet friendliness and we just decided we were going to make it easier for people to travel with their pets,” Amy said.
