About Dog Friendly Certified

The team here at Dog Friendly Certified are dog owners who love taking holidays and weekends away with our dog, Ollie. However, the search for truly dog friendly accommodation, has always been a frustration.

Even though a property might advertise as “pet friendly”, it doesn’t mean that it is going to welcome Ollie inside or provide basic necessities for holidaying with dogs.

You still need to ask every property the same questions:

  • Do you welcome dogs inside?
  • Can we leave our dog safely outside?
  • Is there enough garden space for our dog to play?
  • Are there dog friendly parks, beaches, café’s nearby?

And then you get all the questions from the property manager:

“What breed is your dog?”

“How big is your dog?”

“Does your dog have long hair?”

All too often it turns out “pet friendly” properties are NOT very dog friendly at all!

So, this was the inspiration for Dog Friendly Certified, to find a group of genuine dog friendly properties committed to delivering the same high standards of dog friendly holiday accommodation.

We make it easy for you to book your next holiday with your furry friend.

When you see a property that displays the Dog Friendly Certified logo, you can book your Dog Friendly Holiday with confidence, knowing that your dog will be made as welcome as you are!
