We all need a vacation at times, and there is nothing like a “cheeky” weekend getaway or extended trip to leave us feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and ready to get back to work after the Holidays.
The problem with most vacation rentals is that they are not dog friendly, or if they are they charge a huge “security deposit” to enable our K9 friends to stay with us. Because of this, I have started using Airbnb as my first choice of travel provider.
In this new Series, we want to highlight some of the incredible places you can stay at with your dog in our fav cities around the world
We may be slightly bias as we live here, but London is a super pet friendly place to stay. Dogs are welcome into pubs, restaurants and shops. I have never been turned down from an establishment with my dogs and they are always a welcome site (they are super cute though).
We take the dogs for walks along the river, to the market, on the underground and even to the Pub or restaurant. It is hard to find a reason not to take your dog anywhere.
Paris is often said to be the “most romantic city in the world” as well as the heart of fashion and food. Paris is also superbly dog friendly with dogs being seen in restaurants and department stores all over the city. A lot of Parisian hotels are dog friendly and most of the AirBnB‘s we found online were welcoming of pets so the options are plenty. We have never had a problem taking our dogs anywhere in Paris- whether it be the local bakery or on the public transport.
Montreal is one of the most wonderful places to visit in Canada and much more pet friendly than it’s Southern counterpart. We have seen dogs in cafes and bars but a lot of restaurants now are only service dog friendly so make sure you call ahead and ask if you can bring your dog with you.
The number of hotels in the center of town that were pet friendly were limited, but we found the below Airbnb‘s that look incredible
So there you have it. Our first top dog friendly cities perfect for a holiday with your dog.
