Knoxville, TN - March 31, 2005 - According to a recent survey conducted by BringYourPet.com, 47% of respondents say they travel with dogs over 40 pounds and 78% stay at designated pet-friendly hotels or lodging at least once a year. With these numbers in mind, many hoteliers are revising their previous weight restrictions and ultimately increasing their bottom line. 

DogFriendlyDirectory.com, a leading pet friendly lodging resource for travelers caters specifically to those traveling with large dogs. On the Web site travelers can find dog friendly lodging by city or state and there are clear icons denoting whether or not the property will accept dogs over forty pounds. "Anyone with a big dog knows how hard it is to find a pet friendly place to stay that doesn't just allow your dog, but actually welcomes your dog. We’re trying to simplify things," states Dog Friendly Directory Spokesperson, Steven Davis.
