(SPOT.ph) Whether it’s for emotional support, medical assistance, or as part of the family, pets play a big part in the lives of many. But it can be a challenge to bring your furry friends to places with you. Fortunately, more and more establishments in Baguio City are welcoming them, so you can hang out in more places apart from Burnham Park and John Hay.

Just make sure that your pets are wearing diapers and are on a leash when you're out and about at these establishments. You also have to be responsible for your little ones, including cleaning up after them when they do their business.

Plus, other bus companies now allow pet parents to reserve seats for their faithful pals—as long as they have their own carrier. Check in advance for schedules and other arrangements.

With 28 hectares of wide, open space, you and your furry pal will have quite a bit of area to explore—even to run around and be active. You can stretch your legs and fill your lungs with fresh air while trekking the eco-trail, learn about Cordilleran houses from Sagada and Benguet, and take lots of photos with a backdrop of anthurium and poinsettia farms in full bloom. If you’re lucky, you may even come across some of the resident goats.
