Take Your Dog on Holiday!

This Friday (23rd June) is National Take Your Dog to work day. It’s something that we’ve been doing for years – and those of you that have visited us for a few years will have seen our Spaniel, Annie, grow from a tiny pup into the lady she is today.

Taking your dog to work has lots of benefits for you and your dog; but really having a dog in your life is about sharing the special moments, the fun times. That’s why both Yorkshire Holiday Parks, Weir Holiday Park and Allerton Holiday are dog friendly. We believe that a dog is part of the family and they should enjoy your holiday as much as you do.

Both of our Holiday Parks have some great dog walks direct from your holiday home – at Allerton Holiday Park there’s even a great field where your dog can have some off-lead fun.

If you book a holiday with us and would like to bring your dog, then tell us when you book and we’ll ensure that your dog is made welcome on arrival, just as you are. We do make a small charge for your dog to stay with us of just £15/week.

Packing your dog’s suitcase can seem like a mammoth task so here’s our list of things to bring:

  • Collar with an ID tag with your phone number on, and ours! Get an extra ID disc made up with our number on too, just in case you become separated whilst you’re away.
  • A lead. Dogs do need to be on leads around the Holiday Parks. We would suggest bringing a short static lead as a lot of dog-friendly attractions don’t allow extendable leads.
  • Your dog’s bedding. This will help your dog settle whilst away – the familiar scent of home will ensure your dog feels secure in an unfamiliar environment.
  • Dog Towels to dry off any wet muddy paws before taking your dog indoors
  • Your own dog food, food and water bowls.
  • Poo Bags – please always pick up after your dog.

If you do need anything for your dog whilst you are staying with us, then just pop into reception and we’ll be happy to help or advise on where to go to make an emergency purchase.

If you’re staying with us and not bringing your dog, then you will be in a holiday home that hasn’t had pets in it – we appreciate that not everyone is a dog lover and that sometimes pet dander can cause allergies so we do keep some of our homes dog-free.
