Have a Great Holiday by Taking Your Dog With You!

November 30, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 129

Planning a holiday can be stressful. Choosing your destination is only the first step in a long line of steps to ensure your holiday is a success. But just because you're looking to get away from it all, doesn't mean you're looking to get away from everyone. Sure, you could leave your beloved dog behind when you go away, but with all the options available for holiday travel with your pet, why would you?

Dogs have been working their way in to our hearts for thousands of years. With their unconditional love, soulful expressions and wagging tails, they have long been considered members of the family. There was a time when it was unheard of to have a doggy holiday, but not so anymore. There is an abundance of dog friendly hotels and other accommodations available for you and your best friend.

Not only are there entire networks devoted solely to matching up pet owners with accommodations in virtually any part of the world, they can also provide you with a list of dog friendly restaurants, cafes, and pubs. If you are wanting to bring doggy on holidays with you, you needn't worry, the information is yours for the taking.

Accommodations can vary from 4 or 5 star hotels, to cottages, bed and breakfasts, self catering and caravans.

Some require an extra deposit, and some do not, be sure to check before you book so you're not caught unaware. Dog friendly hotels can be found all over the UK and Europe, for every kind of budget. Keep in mind the activity level of your doggy before booking a holiday spot. If you have a small dog that doesn't do much in the way of exercise it may not be as important to you to be near a park as it would if you have a medium to large size dog that needs a few good runs each day. Some dog friendly hotels may have restrictions on the size of dog they will accommodate, and you may find there are less options for larger breeds. Above all, be honest when booking. If the reservationist says they only accept small breeds, and you are the proud parent of an Irish Wolfhound, do not think no one will notice. Find a dog hotel that suits you and your pet.

If it is important to you that your pet come with you on your next holiday, take the time to research the accommodations in the area to find just the right fit for you and your dog. You'll both be glad you did.
