HOLIDAY PARKS SOLVE DOG DILEMMA AT A STROKE
The Best of British (BoB) parks group has reported the finding after boning-up on booking data produced by the 50-plus independent holiday parks in its membership.
BoB believes that it is people who previously went abroad for holidays who are snapping up the chance to let their pets share the holiday experience. They save on kennelling costs too.
The BoB survey also suggests that many member-parks are taking the lead when it comes to providing attractions which will give them the ‘Rex-factor’ among holidaymakers.
Doggy day-care facilities, special shower points for muddy mutts, dedicated exercise fields, walking guides for owners and even dog training classes are among the canine come-ons.
According to Best of British chairman Claire Jeavons, ‘Many families hate being separated from their pets when they go away, but a holiday park solves their dog dilemma at a stroke.
‘Parks are ideal locations for well-behaved dogs as there is little or no traffic and often easy access to footpaths and country walks which don't involve getting in the car.
‘Owners don't have to fret that their pets are pining for them in expensive boarding kennels far away.’
