Priceline.com based the rankings on the number of hotels within their network of “Express Deals” that are listed as “pet friendly,” the number of off-leash dog parks per 100,000 residents, and city walkability, as measured by Walk Score.
Priceline’s reservation network includes nearly 300,000 participating hotels and accommodation sites worldwide.
Susie says what: “How come we’re not number 1?”
Susie is a member of the Louisville Dog Park Association and regularly goes to the dog park in Tom Sawyer State Park. Besides the five existing sites the LDPA is getting ready to open additional sites in the area.
