How to plan for a holiday with multiple dogs


03 July 2023
Planning a holiday or weekend break can be a challenging task, especially if you have several furry family members to consider!

However, with the right approach, although finding dog-friendly holiday accommodation that accepts multiple dogs requires a bit of extra effort and research, you can still ensure a comfortable and enjoyable getaway for you and your pets. There are plenty of dog-friendly places out there that will welcome multiple dogs!

Start by looking online and refine your search to properties that accept a number of dogs. Check out any detailed descriptions about the accommodation and user reviews. Look for properties that have positive feedback specifically related to accommodating multiple dogs. Hearing about other pet owners’ experiences will also give you a better understanding of the property’s suitability for your dogs.

It’s a good idea to contact the accommodation providers directly. Some properties may not advertise their pet policies online and may have specific requirements for multiple dogs. Contacting them directly allows you to confirm their pet policies and address any concerns or questions you may have.

Take the surroundings of the accommodation into account to ensure there are plenty of opportunities for exercise and recreation for all your dogs. Look for nearby parks, dog-friendly beaches, hiking trails, or other amenities that will help keep your dogs happy and entertained during your stay.

Be prepared and you can look forward to a fantastic break with your furry companions.
