The Best Dog-Friendly Holiday Destinations
If you are a dog owner, there’s something not quite right about going away without your best friend. Luckily, when it comes to holidays, campsites and caravan parks are often welcoming of dogs.
Leaving the dog behind on a trip, either with a dog sitter or in a kennel, just doesn’t feel right. They’re just as much part of the family as anyone else, so why shouldn’t they get to come along? What’s even worse is knowing how much your dog would have loved it, running through the woods and bathing in the lake.
It’s hard to enjoy yourself and make the most of any trip knowing that somewhere your dog is missing you as much as you miss them. Thankfully, a lot of caravan parks across the UK and overseas are dog friendly, meaning no one has to miss out.
Dog Friendly Holiday Parks
Although there are still sites that unfortunately don’t allow dogs, a lot of parks welcome and even encourage you to bring your four-legged friends. Sites like Low Park Wood and Amberley Fields are great for dogs in the UK and Les Grottes De Roffy in Brittany is just one of the many campsites in France which welcome dogs.
Low Park Wood is found in the heart of the Lake District in Kendal, Cumbria. The site is set in woodland and is so peaceful you might never want to leave. With the nearby fells and lakes, there is plenty to do and some great walks for you and your dog.
At the other end of the country in Sussex you’ll find Amberley Fields. Just half an hour from Gatwick Airport, it’s also the perfect base for exploring the Downs and beautiful Sussex countryside.
There are many other dog friendly sites around the country and overseas but be sure to get yourself a pet passport. So long as you respect those around you and carry out all those things you need to do to make sure that your dog isn’t a nuisance (the nasty duties particularly), then dogs will continue to be welcome.
What To Do
Your dog almost certainly loves exploring as much as you do. So, wherever you are around the country, go for some nice long walks and take in the local scenery. Whether it’s the South Downs of Sussex, the lakes of Cumbria or the rolling countryside of Brittany, your dog is bound to love the adventure.
Play fetch on the beach and let them off for a run on the moors, it’s more or less doggy heaven. It just wouldn’t be right for them to miss out.
It’s understandable that some destinations don’t have the facilities to accommodate dogs. Thankfully, there is more than enough choice when it comes to finding somewhere that does allow animals. It’s up to dog owners to make sure that they and their dogs give such a good impression while on holiday that more sites realise that allowing pets is really good for the whole atmosphere.
If you love travelling on a regular basis and want to take your best friend too, you should consider investing in a caravan. At the moment this is one of the best solutions for holidaying with your pet. See if you can find a caravan for sale at www.caravanclub.co.uk. If you are not an expert at caravans, do not worry, there is lots of useful information that can give you guidance and help you through the process. In the future, leaving Fido or Rex behind will not have to be an issue.
