To help you find and book a suitable pet friendly cottage, read our blog Pet Friendly Cottages for Holidays with Your Dog.
Holiday cottages that welcome pets tend to be in locations where you and your pet will be able to enjoy your holiday together, such as having a secure garden, nearby footpaths for dog walking as well as beaches where dogs can run free. As a responsible dog owner, it's always a good idea to bring a blanket or two to throw over the sofa that your dog will no doubt single out to sleep on to avoid them moulting on the cushions. Many cottages, as well as allowing dogs, will provide special facilities such as bowls, blankets for sofas, collar tags with a local contact number contact details for a local vet or even a few doggie treats in the welcome pack. Always ask what facilities are provided for dogs as some truly dog-loving cottages even include beds, toys and outdoor kennels.
Most pet friendly holiday cottages will charge a small amount to cover the additional cost of cleaning a house that has had dogs staying in it, but this is well worth the price compared to the cost of kennels. One thing is certain through - a cottage that welcomes dogs means you no longer have to pay handsomely to endure the heartache that comes from being parted from your pet if they stay in kennels at home while you holiday without them. Just take your pet on holiday as a part of the family - after all, that's what they are aren't they?
