Hi Everyone,

As the summer is very nearly here, i thought it would be nice to get some ideas of 'dog friendly' holidays & accomodation for the UK and abroad.

When we return from our travels, i would imagine where possible we will be taking Brad with us on any future holidays, and there are many places around now that are so well equipped for dogs.

Here's a good place to start if you are searching for UK holiday accomodation:

If you are thinking of taking your lab abroad, you'll need to follow the pet passport scheme:

How do you feel about leaving your lab with dog sitters or kennels if family aren't always available?

It's not always possible to take your lab with you everywhere, and there are some great services available these days. I've added a few links to our links section for pet sitters etc., If anyone else knows of anymore, please feel free to add them to the links section.

Has anyone ever taken their lab on a boating holiday? I've always wanted to go on a canal boat holiday! lol

I've attached a poll also. :D

Happy holidays! 8)

Hi :)

We're off to Cyprus a week Sunday, and even though I'm looking forward to it, I'm not looking forward to leaving Harvey :(

We booked it last summer, long before we had him - and even though we discussed the holiday before buying him, I didnt realise what a wrench it would be leaving him.

He's going to Richs parents, so I know he will be spoilt, and will love it, but I will still be sad leaving him. God job it's only a week!!

From now on I think it's holiday with Harvey :D

Hi Fay & Mel, 8)

Hope you both have great holidays - labforums will miss you!!

I'm sure Harvey & Hershey will be fine, just think of all those excited licks and kisses you are going to get when you come back. :wink:

Found another useful website, which has a free booklet regarding animal health in Europe - it covers all of the main topics including ticks, mosquitos, sandflies etc.in an easy to read, concise ten page booklet:

Here's the link for the site:

All the best,

Julie

Cumon you guys! Get with it and get those pet passports sorted out! It's not hugely expensive. Travelling in Europe with dogs is a synch! Both mine regularly pop into Spain with me, stay in hotels and go into restaurants. Then you can come and visit me! Labbies welcome! :lol:

LOL! I've plenty of room for tents and 4 acres of labbie proofed grounds, a set of agility equipment and a labbie swimming pool! Check out my website www.frenchsecrets.co.uk. :lol: :lol: It says no dogs but exceptions always made for good labbie friends!
