Milk Bone Ranks All American Doggy Road Trips

Summer is the top season for travel — but increasingly, Americans are choosing to hit the open road rather than brave airport delays. This summer, 88 percent of Americans will travel by car instead of by jet plane (according to AAA).

In the spirit of the great American road trip, Milk-Bone teamed up with other products in the Big Heart Pet Brands family (including Pup-Peroni, Canine Carry Outs and Milo’s Kitchen) to present the “Milk-Bone Doggy Road Trip Ranking — your guide to the top destinations to treat the whole family… including Fido.

By cross referencing online review sites with data on dog-friendly restaurants and hotels, the brand has compiled the ultimate list of pup-approved parks and landmarks and assigned each spot a “Milk-Bone Biscuit Score.”
