We believed that if people could see us doing it – I mean we’re not rocket scientists we’re not dog behaviorists – we’re just normal people doing the best that we can. If people could see us doing it all the time, then they would believe they could do it for a week at a time or two weeks at a time. That’s what mattered to me. Because this all comes back to a base philosophy of no matter how long our pets are with us, it’s never long enough.

The Burkert Family Story: 

While on vacation, Amy and Rod Burkert started to wonder what their dogs were supposed to do while they were all on the road. A CPA by trade, Amy started to research what the road had to offer their pups and realized that there wasn’t a streamlined resource that listed all of the pet-friendly places to visit while traveling. So, Amy and Rod launched Go Pet Friendly. The couple believed it would make sense to travel full-time while creating content for their new venture, but they did not anticipate it turning into a life of full-time RVing. Now, the couple and their dogs Ty and Buster live and work on the road.

Stories from the Road Podcast

One of my favorite parts of RVing is sitting with other people and sharing stories: the good, the bad, and the hilarious.

The Stories from the Road Podcast talks to RVers from all walks of life about what led them to the RV lifestyle, the things they like and the things they don’t like, and where they see themselves going in the future.


Other things we talk about in this episode:

  • Getting out there to show people what it is you’re doing
  • The time it takes to compile multiple sources of information into one place
  • Working for nothing for a period of time
  • Asking yourself “are you doing what you want to do?”
  • Positioning your brand
  • Cultivating business partnerships in a purposeful way


Thanks for Listening!
