Holidays in the UK are not just reserved for humans, taking your dog on holiday with you allows the whole family to holiday together and can help put your mind at ease knowing your dog is safe and sound.
There are many types of holidays and different holiday accommodation to select from which allow dogs. Such holidays include a self-catering break to a UK holiday park, a caravan holiday or choosing to spend time away enjoying hot tub holidays.
In the past it wasn’t always an option to take a holiday break with your dog as it was usually difficult to organise and inconvenient. However, thanks to the upsurge in dog friendly accommodation, a change in pet travel regulations means family pats can now join in the fun and join in with the family holiday or short break.
Holidaying with your dog saves you hassle and inconvenience of arranging a suitable dog sitter or paying expensive kennel fees. Travelling with dogs usually means travelling light, so it may be a case of putting the dog bed into the back of the car then grabbing his / her lunch and lead and off you go. Staying in a dog friendly holiday to a cottage, lodge, caravan or hotel may cost you slightly more due to extra cleaning that is required once your stay is over.
When on holiday it is usually accepted that dogs are not allowed to remain on their own inside the accommodation whilst you go the pool, site seeing or for a bite to eat, for example. Some accommodation may allow dogs to stay, however if you are taking more than one dog on holiday with you it may be appropriate to contact the holiday company / accommodation owner to be certain that multiple pets are allowed.
