Co-founders of GoPetFriendly.com, Amy and Rod Burkert travel full-time with their two dogs, Buster and Ty, in their motorhome and write a blog about their adventures. In 2008 they already had Ty, their Shar-Pei, but found a stray German Shepherd, whom they named Buster. They wanted to travel around with their dogs but couldn’t find a suitable guidebook, so they created their own. Their mission is to make pet travel easy and fun – because pets deserve vacations, too!
