Finding a pet friendly holiday

There is a huge percentage of the population that own a dog and many of them could not bear to go on holiday with out it. If you are going abroad, this can be extremely difficult and expensive as the dog will have to be in quarantine for a number of months prior to travelling and this alone can be distressful on the animal let alone the actual travelling.

If you are holidaying in the UK and are driving to your destination then you will need to ensure you have regular breaks where you can get the dog out of the car for a short while and have a drink before returning to the road. There are some dog friendly camping sites and even hotels dotted throughout the UK. You may still have to pay an additional fee to have a dog so always make sure that you specify this when booking.

You need to consider what you will do with the dog whilst you are out. It may be that you want to go out for an evening meal where you cannot take the pet and in this case need to be sure that the dog will not start chewing the furniture or spend the whole time barking while you are away.

Yellowstone National Park

Widely regarded as the world’s first national park, and certainly its most famous, The USA’s Yellowstone National Park encompasses nearly 3500 miles of stunning and varied scenery. Established in 1872, it’s mainly situated in the state of Wyoming, spreading over the borders into Montana and Idaho. The park is teeming with wildlife and is home to packs of wolves and grizzly bears. Hiking and camping are great activities for getting in touch with nature and the great outdoors.
The landscape varies from rugged mountains, through sweeping pine forests to the world renowned hot springs and geysers. These are one of the premiere attractions and draw crowds of tourists every year. The most famous geyser is Old Faithful, so named for the regularity of its eruptions. The source of these geological marvels is the Yellowstone caldera, a vast underground magma chamber that heats the rocks below the park and forces hot water and gases up through the ground.
Being such a long established and popular park, Yellowstone has an excellent infrastructure, with a high quality road network to provide access to the most popular sites. The park is a must for those seeking a glimpse of America’s rich natural history.
