Doggy holidays have become really popular over the past few years and everyone is out looking for the best places to take their dog.
Only consider taking your dog on holiday with you if:
- They can confidently walk on a lead
- Have practiced travelling in the car
- They can be handled by you (eg. lifting into the car)
- They have been given at least a fair few months to settle in to the home properly
- Are ready to do so...
As mentioned above, some Rommies will not be able to cope with going on a doggy holiday; some dogs will never be ready, some may really dislike the car, others may be very timid outside of the home.
Think about where you're going:
Could your dog cope with sitting in a pub, walking on busy streets and passing other dogs? If not you will need to look for somewhere that is more quiet or a holiday home that is happy with the dog being left in the cottage/caravan etc whilst you go out. You must ensure that you dog is comfortable being left alone and do not cry or become destructive if they are left.
There are lots of holiday providers that will allow dogs but some will not allow the dog in the bedrooms so ensure to check before booking.
