Things to Consider when Travelling with your Dog:
Whilst there are many hotels that will house your pets, some are more welcoming than others. Always research into each venue thoroughly and check that it is suitable for you and your family. Every hotel has its own set of pet rules, some more relaxed than other. Always check to see if they work for you and call the hotel to make your reservation so they know to expect a doggy visitor.
