Bring the Whole Family

  • 17th May 2016

Bring the Whole Family

You don't have to be human to be family, as anyone with a fur baby - otherwise known as a pet, would agree. While you aren't likely to bring your rabbit or even your cat on holiday with you, taking your dog with you is fairly commonplace. All the more-so when you book a caravan holiday in the UK!

Here at Allens Caravans, we have a number of caravan holiday parks that welcome pets, which is ideal if you can't bear to leave your pooch behind. You can enjoy the countryside, the mountains, the hills, the beach and much more with man's best friend by your side the whole time.

Our parks that welcome pets are Abbot's Salford, Leedons, Overstone Lakes, Severnside and Sunbeach. With plenty to see and do for you, your family and the dog, you won't be disappointed when you holiday with Allens.

As with any new environment, your dog will be overwhelmed with new scents; trees to sniff and fields to explore.

In order to keep your beloved pet as safe as possible, it's important that you stick to a few fundamental guidelines.

  • Use a dog harness when travelling to, from and around your holiday, and remember to stop frequently if you're on a long journey to allow your dog to stretch its legs, eat and have a drink
  • Keep your dog on a lead between the months of March and July when on access land, or all year round on farmland - don't let your dog get too close to farm animals in fields when you're walking, either
  • Remember to clean up any mess; as you would if you were at home
  • Check where the local vets are, just in case
  • Only let your dog off the lead to run free when it is safe to do so. Country roads may appear quiet but many drivers won't be expecting a dog to cross their paths should they wander off
  • Be aware of the dangers of ticks, especially when walking in areas of long grass or woodland. Ticks can lead to Lyme disease and much more
  • You should also be aware when walking your dog near farmland, as many farmers leave poison out for rats and badgers which can be very dangerous if ingested by your dog

Going on a caravan holiday means you can bring the whole family; does life get any better than that? For more information about our holiday parks that welcome pets, please visit our website and see which you prefer!
