A Dolphin Coast beach holiday with your pets

Nothing makes you feel more guilty than packing your bags to go on holiday and having your furry friend look at you with those sad how-can-you-leave-me eyes.

The solution: take them with!

Before you and your furries get ready to chill out with the ocean breeze in your hair, check that you have covered the basic pet ethics house rules:

  1. Make sure your pet is socialised. There may be other furries on holiday with their families and you do not want to be the one causing a scene, so make sure Fluffy knows how to behave like a lady and that Bruno can keep his voice down.
  2. Being house trained is a must – no compromises.
  3. When you leave, make sure you take all of your pet with you, including the stray fluff on the coach.
