Things to Consider when Bringing your Dog on Holiday

Searches for dog friendly holidays have increased by over 60 per cent in the past couple of years, and are still on the rise. Being able to bring your four legged friend on holiday with you is a great experience, as it often feels like you’ve left a member of the family behind if you don’t bring them.

With this in mind, we have taken a look at a few things to consider if you are planning on bringing your beloved pet to our dog-friendly Wales holiday homes for sale


It may seem like an obvious item to bring with you, but it is usually the simplest things that slip our minds! North Wales has many beautiful walks for your dog to enjoy, which will certainly build up a big appetite! Bringing your own food and water bowls should also be considered, as this can help to create a more settled environment for your pet if they have something similar associated with their day to day life.


Packing your dog’s bed will also help to create some familiarity, as well as giving them somewhere comfy to sleep and settle in for the night. We’re sure you’ll have a great night’s sleep when you stay with us, and we want to ensure your faithful companion has the same experience.

Comforting Item

Bringing your pet along on holiday can be an exciting prospect, and we are sure your dog will enjoy the stay just as much as you do. However, having a piece of home away from home such as their blanket or their favourite toy can help to settle your dog in more quickly (combined with the other items in the list) which will ensure they will also have a great holiday!

Regular Stops

Being curled up in the car for long periods of time can be uncomfortable for you, but stopping for regular toilet and coffee breaks gives you the opportunity to stretch your legs. Your dog will also benefit from these regular stops which ensures they get the chance to have a run about. The AA suggest that you should stop every two hours if you are on a long journey, which gives everyone the chance to get some fresh air and have a walk about. These are just a few things you may wish to consider when you are booking into our dog friendly accommodation, but if you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
