FIDO Friendly Magazine Review and Giveaway!

Whether you read FIDO Friendly magazine online, in bed (like Toby does) or cuddled up on the couch with your pup (like I do), it should definitely be on your must-read list. Not only do they cover everything dog, but it’s written in an interesting and conversational way.

My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much recently had the opportunity to review the online subscription (we currently have a print subscription) and it was one of the easiest online magazines to read. You can flip through the pages just like you do the magazine, you can see the ads just like you do in the magazine and you can zoom in and out so if you want to get a closer look at something you can.

What I like best about FIDO Friendly is the magazine’s diversity. There is information about everything I want to know: dog nutrition, the hottest dog trends, contests, interesting features about other doggie parents, travel information and so much more. And, more importantly, it’s consistently fresh content. Other magazines, including mainstream news stand ones, cover the same general topics just written by different people. It gets boring after a while. But, with FIDO Friendly, the content is always new.

For example, in the most current issue, the magazine brings readers behind the scenes at The Honest Kitchen, takes a look at alternative therapies for dogs in an article titled, “Not Your Grandparent’s Veterinarian,” gives tips on how to prepare yourself for leaving your pup at the kennel for the first time and addresses the question, “Can Dogs Truly Fall in Love?”

My favorite section in this latest issue though, has to be the Top 50 FIDO Friendly Destinations and the photos of dogs at the places! It made me already start planning my 2011 vacation days.

So, now for the fun part! One My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much reader will receive a one-year print or digital subscription to FIDO Friendly magazine!

1/20/10 – UPDATE!  ANYONE CAN ENTER THE CONTEST, BUT IF THE WINNER IS OUTSIDE THE U.S. THEY AUTOMATICALLY GET THE DIGITAL SUBSCRIPTION. (it was previously U.S. only)

Since the travel part of the magazine is usually my favorite section, leave a comment below telling us where you would take your pet on vacation if money wasn’t an issue to be entered.

  1. I have always dreamed of taking Prudence to Paris! So if I had the money (and the ability to get us both over there without having to put her in cargo) that's where we would go. She's a very chi-chi pup; she'd fit right in.

  2. I am not entering the contest because I live in Canada, but I am curious whether they do send subcriptions up here? It seems like such a great magazine. Hope you're keeping warm!

  3. If money wasn't an issue, I would pack Spike and Dru in the car and drive across the country. I would take a couple of months so I could do it right.

    Thanks for the give away, it sounds like a great subscription.

  4. I, like Helen, would love to pack Darby into an RV and trek around the country, checking out all of the really coll dog-friendly places there are to visit!

  5. I'd love to take Marzipan and Dubs to Hawaii if money wasn't an issue and also if this was an alternate universe where Hawaii wasn't a 12 hour plane ride away bc I'm pretty sure they can't sit still that long πŸ™‚ I think they'd love hanging out on the beach and enjoying the laid back atmosphere.

    Thanks!!
    Janine

  6. If money wasn't an issue, I would LOVE to take my 3 Border Collies for a vacation in Alaska. I've only been there once but it is gorgeous, and I would love to go enjoy the beautiful views with the 3 dogs I love the most. πŸ™‚

  7. Oh boy! I think i would want to go to south florida…..anyone want to meet me there for some sun and sand vacation…..I've been there before……but I've never had a chance to read this magazine…..thanks!

  8. We would take our Great Dane Charlton to everywhere listed as "pet friendly" and review how well they handle us and our huge pup! Then we would publish a book about our journey and include lots of photos.

  9. Jenks wants to travel the country in a small RV with me!!!! We are hoping for a vintage tincan….I want a pink stripe..Jenks just wants it to have a really big dog bed!!!!
    We want to take hikes at every national park that allows dogs!!!

  10. Blog hop! My Airedales and I would visit County Aire in the UK to see the place where Airedales came from. We'd go in the middle of the summer when the weather's good.

  11. Hi guys! We would love to enter the contest for the magazine! We'll read it anyway, whether we win or not. Hu-mom loves the beach and warm weather, her favorite destination is anywhere in the Carribean and doggies do love the beach!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  12. Mom says that when we hit the BIG ONE and win the lotto, we'll get a big RV and roadtrip all over Canada and the US. We have made a TON of great online friends through their blogs and social networking sites and we'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet them all! Since they are all dog people, it's be a real dog friendly vacation.
