Dog friendly vacation rentals in Ontario, we think your dog will love
Taking a vacation that includes our dogs, is a win-win- no kennel for your dog and you get to enjoy down time with them. However, a little advanced planning can go a long way when including Rover. Making your next vacation plan doesn’t need to be difficult. There are a wide variety of cottage rentals that allow guests with dogs. To save yourself a headache, check their pet policy for details and determine any extra fees upfront for bringing a furry friend.
Nowadays, most cottage and 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.
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 at a cottage is a must. The blue water lakes, shores, and trails beckon dogs and dirt. Honestly, just assume they'll get muddy so bring extra dog towels and a trusty brush! Ticks in Ontario can be a problem for our furry friends, check with your vet for preventative measures.
