Dog friendly vacation rentals in British Columbia, we think your dog will love
Ahh vacation! A time to relax, restore and rejuvenate. Bringing your entire family, including the dog, along with you on your next trip might be something you're interested in.
Traveling with Fido can be extremely rewarding and great for avoiding kennels or unfamiliar people or homes. That said, a few missteps in planning can ruin an otherwise amazing experience.
Nowadays, most chalet and vacation rental booking sites offer a pet or dog option when sniffing out pet friendly cottage rentals. I’m partial to the Airbnb option for adding pets to your search- it works just like adding a guest- plunk the number of dogs/pets you’ll be bringing, and you’ll get results that take that into consideration. VRBO offers a simple yes/no to pet inclusion on their website, which is serviceable.
One booking site that is growing in popularity is bringfido.com. There you can find dog friendly hotels, restaurants, activities and more.
However you book, take notice of the pet policy and declare all dogs to the owner when renting. This will reduce the chances of excess cleaning fees or a stressful situation when you're trying to enjoy sandy beaches.
Planning ahead for dirty and wet dogs while away is a must. Whether it’s a dip in the ocean, running along the shores, or hiking trails, these activities beckon dogs to dirt. Honestly, just assume they'll get muddy so bring extra dog towels and a trusty brush! Ticks can be a problem for our furry friends, check with your vet for preventative measures.
