Tips to ensure you and your furry mate will be welcomed again.

Do check these tips to ensure the property owner will welcome you and pooch back again. It’ll also give the property owners a good feeling for the next time someone wants to bring their dog along too.

  • Before you arrive on your holiday- have you “de-flea” Fido? Allow at least two days before arriving for it to be most effective.
  • If your dog has behaviour problems, maybe best to not bring him along this time around.
  • Cleaners are NOT responsible for poop in the garden! Please do ensure you have checked the grass and the garden. There is nothing worse than having to pick up someone else’s dog poop. And a guarantee that you will not be able to return.
  • Avoid letting Fido on the sofas (particularly leather ones!) and the bed. As soon as you arrive, instruct Fido to sit on the dog bed in a spot he can see you.  It’ll help him remember when he is used to sitting on the sofa.
  • Ask the property owner if they supply dog bed and bowls, as some expect you to bring them with you.
  • Check with the property owner for paths that are accessible and pet friendly. This is important. Firstly, in peak season, that dog–friendly beach nearby may be closed to dogs.
  • Secondly, you may be cruising along a lovely scenic bush path that is a part nature reserve. You may need Fido leashed or not bring him along on your stroll. If the property owner cannot answer, the local council websites are great resources.
  • Of course, do be respectful of the law and ensure poop is collected and binned.
