Going on holiday can sometimes be a bit of a nightmare for families who have a dog. You’ve found the perfect destination for your ideal holiday but before you can go anywhere you have to work out who will be looking after your pet while you’re away, and how you will be sure that he is going to be ok without you around. You could try and get a friend to care for him, but it’s a pretty big ask, especially if you’re going to be away for more than a few days. The other alternative is to find a pet-sitter or boarding facility but it’s difficult to know which ones are trustworthy and you know you’ll only end up spending your holiday worrying about whether he is happy and being properly cared for.
There has got to be a better alternative. Pets are part of the family after all, and it hardly seems fair that they should be left behind while everyone else is off having fun on holiday. Luckily, more and more holiday companies are beginning to realise this and are starting to offer pet friendly accommodation at only a small extra cost. OK, so you can’t take them on a plane to the other side of the world, but if you’re planning a holiday a bit closer to home it’s worth considering taking them with you – you wouldn’t have to worry about them being left behind and it’s normally cheaper than paying a pet-sitter or kennel to care for them.
Wales is a great place to go for a family holiday with a dog. Not only is there a huge range of different types of self catering accommodation, from flats and houses in the town to rural holiday cottages, Wales also boasts some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. And honestly, what dog wouldn’t love the opportunity to run around in the famous Welsh hills and valleys, or along one of the beautiful coastlines with their long sandy beaches and striking cliff faces.
It’s not just your dog who will love Wales, there is wealth of attractions and activity holidays for the rest of the family, not to mention the chance to explore a country that is not only beautiful but rich in history, culture and entertainment. So if you’re looking for the perfect destination to take the whole family – including the dog – for a short break, Wales could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
