Tips To Ensure Your Furry Friend Has A Stress-Free Holiday

Your four-legged friend is about to embark on an exciting adventure, but you want to make it as hassle-free as possible. Remember:

  • Keep dogs on a leash in public.
  • Clean up any mess they make.
  • Always take a water container to prevent dehydration.
  • To prevent frostbite and hypothermia when heading to places like the Victorian Alpine Region in winter, avoid exposing them to cold temperatures for long periods.
  • Keep fur babies inside when temperatures plummet.
  • Grab a super cute winter coat for them so they can stay warm and cosy.

Now, all you need to do is get ready for an exciting family holiday with your perfect companion.

How To Make Your Vacation with Your Four-Legged Friend Perfect

  1. Accommodation

    Hold onto your leashes! If you’re on the prowl for the ultimate pet friendly holiday stay, look no further than Alpine Valley Getaways. We’re your personal holiday heroes, crafting the perfect getaway experiences for you and your furry companions in magical destinations like Bright, Porepunkah, Wandiligong, and Harrietville.We’ve got all bases covered – from pocket-friendly pads for the budget-conscious explorers to ultra-luxe retreats for those who crave the royal treatment.

    So, are you ready to pack your bags, your pup’s favourite toy, and embark on a thrilling escape to pet-friendly paradise? With Alpine Valley Getaways, your dream pet-accompanied adventure is just a woof away!

    When booking pet-friendly accommodation here’s some things to remember:

    • Check the size and number of pets allowed at the property.
    • Make sure the backyard is fenced.
    • Make sure the backyard is of appropriate size if you’re planning to bring a large dog.
    • View pictures of the accommodation to see whether there’s a lot of breakables in the house which your pet could knock over.
    • Ask what doggy friendly pet friendly conveniences they have.

    Most of our holiday homes offer a secure environment for your pet, so there’s no risk of them escaping. However, there are some which don’t offer a secure fenced yard so you may need to consider taking your furry friend with you to experience the fun as pets aren’t allowed to be left indoors alone. Many of our accommodation features a grassed area outside the house, meaning there are plenty of pet-friendly backyard experiences for your family to enjoy. So be sure to ask our crew at Alpine Valley Getaways so you know exactly what you can expect and prepare for.

  1. Pet-Friendly Bars

    You’re out living your best life on vacation, and what could possibly top the sheer delight of savouring a satisfying lunch at a local pub? Ah, but the bittersweet dilemma of leaving your charming fur-baby behind to miss out on the merry escapades.

    Well, let’s just brush off that concern because we’ve handpicked some of the best pet-friendly pubs just for you. This way, your adorable little companion gets to share the spotlight and join in the merry mischief.

    First up is the Happy Valley Hotel Ovens, which exudes an irresistible charm, with its “dog-friendly” tagline. This cozy haven is reminiscent of those delightful, old-school British pubs, sending you on a sweet nostalgia trip.
