For dog owners, the decision to go on holiday is usually faced with a logistical and emotional dilemma. Finding someone you trust to take care of your fur baby while you’re away can be stressful, and the extra hassle (and cost) of organising boarding or pet-sitting often puts a fork in the holiday plans. It all just feels too hard, right?

Aside from the logistics, our dogs are such important and adored members of our family that we don’t actually WANT to leave them behind! Judging by the huge response to our ‘dog friendly cafes and restaurants’ article, it’s obvious that many of our Adelady’s feel the same way. We want to include our furry friends in our day-to-day lives, and guys, believe it or not — this CAN include our holidays! 

What I’m getting at, is that we’ve done it again folks! We’ve asked our community to share all your favourite pet-friendly accommodations, (and done some research of our own to expand your pampered pooch’s holiday options). 

Your dogs can thank us later with a lick, a high five, and hopefully a very restful sleep after all the holiday fun!
