Travelling With Your Dog

Dog Friendly Holidays

Bringing your pet on holiday doesn't have to be a chore, but it pays to be prepared when doing so. We've collected some top tips for making your journey as trouble-free as possible.

Stay healthy

The last thing you need is a sick pet when travelling. This means it might be wise to make a trip to the vet for a pre-travel check-up and to ensure that your pet is up-to-date with all necessary vaccinations. It’s also worth considering how well your pet will travel, as many small dogs and cats can find travelling stressful, not to mention adjusting to any new environments.

Pet Friendly Accommodation

We at Park Holidays UK offer numerous pet friendly options allowing you to bring your beloved dog (or cat) along with you. There's plenty of room in a caravan holiday home for everyone, and most of our holiday parks are a great place to exercise a dog on a lead - with many excellent walking areas available nearby too. We offer accommodation for pets in bronze, and selected silver and gold grades - just look for the "Pets Welcome" Symbol on the accommodation type when booking online and add your pet as an Extra during the booking process.

Travel with care

Be sure to allow for plenty of rest stops whilst travelling, providing enough water along the way. This will help keep your pet calm throughout your journey and ensure you have the safest possible trip. Packing treats can also a good idea in order to encourage good behaviour, though be mindful of causing stomach upsets if used too much whilst in motion.

Pack the essentials

To make your trip as effortless and pain-free as possible, it’s a good idea to compile a checklist of items you need to bring along with you. To help, we have compiled our own list to get you started.
