4 ways camper vans are ideal for pet-owners wanting to have a dog-friendly holiday

Your family holiday just wouldn’t be complete without bringing your dog along for the ride. The question is: what’s the best way to accommodate your pooch on the trip? You should know that a camper van – rather than a hotel or tent – is a fantastic way for your dog to join in the fun. Let’s look at four ways it trumps all other options when you’re looking to enjoy a dog-friendly getaway.

1. Comfort

There are camper vans specifically designed with the intention of accommodating your four-legged friend. This means that your dog needn’t have to suffer any form of discomfort either when you travel or when everyone settles down for the night. The vehicle is so spacious that your pooch won’t have to struggle to find a spot it’s happy with for the night.

2. Relaxation

Camper vans offer a level of sound-proofing that you just can’t get from a tent. This won’t just guarantee that you and your family get a good night’s sleep, but also that your dog won’t be barking throughout the night upon hearing sounds outside. Ultimately, your canine should find it rather easy to relax in the camper van.

3. Health

There’s little more that’s important to dog-owners than their pet’s health. This is why you’ll want to ensure that you don’t put your pooch in harm’s way during the trip. You’ll be glad to know that camper vans allow for an increased amount of ventilation compared to cars thanks to the elevating roof. This will greatly reduce the chance of your dog overheating and becoming unwell.

4. Organisation

It can spoil the fun to be worrying about accommodating your pet when you’re on a trip. After all, not all hotels are happy to welcome pets – and it can make for a stressful experience to have to worry about locking down a place that will allow you to bring your dog. Luckily, when you’re in a camper van you’ll have instant dog-friendly accommodation wherever you go.
