DogJaunt.com advises travelers bringing small pooches. Links to dog-friendly hotels, parks and other online resources will interest owners of bigger canines.

Looking for ideas and tips about how to keep Fido happy on the road and in the air? The answers just might be on this website.

Name: DogJaunt.com

What it does: Provides advice for people traveling with small pooches. The "Guides" section offers reviews of airport pet relief areas, airplane under-seat measurements, U.S. airline pet policies for in-cabin travel and more. The site also offers dog-friendly guides to cities.

What's hot: I like that Chloe, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, accompanies the blog. Chloe's human companion, founder Mary-Alice Pomputius, includes cities such as San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, New York, Minneapolis and Paris in her guides, besides her hometown of Seattle. Links to dog-friendly hotels, parks and other online doggie travel resources will keep owners of bigger canines reading too. And there's an open call to post reader photos on Dog Jaunt's Facebook page.

What's not: My one small complaint is that the cute dog photos don't load quickly enough. If you're surfing quickly to read about dog-friendly beaches, you might see a gray box placeholder instead of a cute boxer-mix puppy named Sadie in Key West, Fla.

Worth it: Yes. This is a giant doggie treat for travelers.
