DogChannel’s Top Traveling Dogs

Announcing the winners of the 2009 Roving Rover dog travel photo contest!

We saw dogs on the Appalachian Trail, on the Oregon Coast, and even in the Philippines! Here is the editors’ pick for the new face of Dog Travel, and a few of the top contenders that we just had to share.
