Everyone has a favourite spot. The one place that you keep dreaming about escaping to, maybe it holds a special memory, maybe you visited as a child and it became a tradition to visit, or maybe it’s just so pretty that you can’t wait to get back there. So, why is it any different when you have four paws?
Dogs are known to enjoy walking in familiar places as well as exploring somewhere new, so it lends itself to think they must have a favourite spot to revisit too. Memories of bounding along sandy beaches in Cornwall, cosying up by the warmth of a country pub’s warm log fire in Wales and discovering new sights and smells in the mountain ranges of Scotland, will keep your hound’s tail wagging for years to come.
However just like humans, every dog is different; some love adventures in the great outdoors and can walk for miles, whereas others prefer a more relaxing day out with plenty of places to rest their paws along the way. And equally, what canines look for in terms of the perfect dog-friendly holiday accommodation varies, with energetic woofers opting for larger properties with spacious gardens and those with shorter legs preferring single-storey retreats.
So here at Canine Cottages, we’ve put together a guide to the top destinations to holiday depending on your dog’s breed. Whether you’re a Labrador who loves lots of space to run around for exercise or a pug looking for more ‘seeing’ than ‘doing’ our graphic will help you find a place perfect for everyone in your family – whether on two legs or four!
