In a recent study by popular travel booking website, Wotif.com, it was revealed that 91% of respondents have a pet, and from this a staggering 41.9% like to take their furry friend on holidays with them. One respondent even confessed, “We took our dog on our honeymoon and we have photos of her fishing, napping on the plush sofa, running through the waves, eating at the local cafe, swimming from the boat … she had a ball! The next time we went away without her I missed her so much, we cut short the holiday to go home!” – Anonymous Dog Lover.
So, it’s hardly surprising that a growing number of holiday destinations right here in Australia and around the world are embracing a pet-friendly policy to cater for the rise in animal-lovers. After all, your four-legged friend is a member of your family, so why should they get left behind when you travel?
Here at Experience Augusta, we too are already embracing this pet-friendly policy, with a number of our popular accommodation and holiday homes catering to the ‘pet-friendly’ criteria, holiday-makers can travel with their family and furry companion in tow stress-free, without having to find a pet-sitter or pay expensive kennel fees whilst they’re away.
