If you already have the Doggie
Guide that you bought within the last two years, please
give me an email and I will send you the latest version :-)
If you don't
- the Dog Guide
(just like the Caravan and Trailer Guide) is a supplementary
guide to the main Destination Guide, and available inside the main
guide (because of the amount of updating
work involved, no other way would be viable).
Also for a
present - you
can buy the Destination Guide as a gift card here :-)
FEEDBACK ALWAYS WELCOME
I really appreciate any kind of feedback on the Destination Guide.
Please let me know if you enjoyed it while planning before the trip, and while using the information once on the trip.
If you get any questions about anything, please feel welcome to contact me.
That's all for
this time - happy planning, and happy travels to those on the road!!
Have a great day :-)
