Dog friendly holidays 2017

None of us like the idea of leaving a beloved pet at a dog shelter while us humans take a holiday in a tropical location. And the entire process of bringing our dogs with us on international trips is extremely complicated and can be quite stressful for our dogs. So why not consider some of our favourite dog-friendly holidays this year?

The Lake District

One of our personal favourites! The lake district is one of the UK's most scenic areas and makes for an unforgettable holiday.

The list of activities is enormous. You can take a day trip to medieval castles, historic sites, manor homes, hike one of the many mountains, rent a boat on one of the many lakes, have a go at some water sports or simply relax with an ice cream overlooking the beautiful Lake Windermere.

The Lake District is a very dog-friendly location and you'll find many other dog owners with their dogs on weekend breaks to multi-week holidays here.

We've found some great holiday rentals to stay which welcome pets:

A new holiday trend is 'Glamorous Camping' or simply 'Glamping'. These holidays are fun for all the family and almost all are very welcoming of our furry four-legged family members too! Glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.
