Bring your Furry Sidekick
Going on holiday is a fantastic way to relax and enjoy doing something different, and we all love a good getaway! If you can’t bear the thought of going on vacation without your pet, or just love to go adventuring together as a family, there are plenty of pet friendly property owners who understand – who can offer great pet friendly accommodation in popular locations around Western Australia. It just takes some extra planning to ensure everyone can enjoy the journey!
Benefits of Travelling With Your Pets
Besides having a furry sidekick on all your amazing adventures, there are a ton of unexpected benefits in traveling with your pet. You get companionship, warm snuggles, and some Instagram-worthy photos! You’ll make friends pretty quickly too, as most people can’t resist a friendly pet.
If you’re travelling with your dog, you’re bound to feel safer in dog friendly accommodation. In the unlikely event that someone tries to break in to where you are staying, your dog would alert you pretty quickly (and probably try to protect you). Even when you’re out and about, you’re bound to feel safer with your pup by your side. After all, walking your dog makes you look more like a local and less like a tourist who can be easily scammed or pick-pocketed.
Whatever your mode of transport – car, train, airplane? – you’ll want to be sure that you’ve planned a safe and enjoyable trip for your pet.
If you’re driving around Perth or WA, a safety harness or barricade across the backseat is a must! Allow for extra time to arrive at your destination, so you can stop easily for toilet and exercise breaks along your planned route. Bring a water bowl, bottled water (in case tap water isn’t available), treats and a leash; and try to stop at a park where it will be nice and safe for your pooch to run around.
For those taking to the air, ensure you check all the requirements with the airlines in advance. They have strict rules around using an authorised crate or carrier, dog breeds, excess baggage fees, and so on. Save yourself stress and unexpected fees and do your homework beforehand!
Lastly, our cats, dogs and other beloved pets can get sick on holidays too, so you’ll want to make sure you’ve searched for the local vets around where you’ll be staying. This is a ‘just in case’ scenario, especially if you’re staying somewhere remote or going camping. It goes without saying that if your pet needs medication, be sure to bring this along and consider any storage needs (eg will there be a fridge at your accommodation?)
Pet friendly accommodation in Perth or greater WA
Before you book your accommodation, check that they will welcome your particular pet. There’s nothing worse than booking a holiday house and then discovering that ‘pet-friendly’ is limited to small dogs only – and you happen to have a cat or great dane!
Some places have kennels on site and don’t permit pets in rooms, so if this bothers you be sure to check for these details first. The best places are sure to go quickly, so book your preferred dog friendly accommodation in advance to avoid disappointment.
Finally, if you can’t find a pet friendly place to stay at – consider finding a suitable boarding kennel like West Coast Pet Care Centre so your pet can still enjoy a fun holiday away from home.
