Hire a motorhome and enjoy a dog friendly holiday
We at Easicampers understand how important it is to find dog friendly accommodation or a suitable dog friendly holiday, so we have some dedicated hire vehicles that are exclusive for dog owners. In our experience, we know dogs absolutely love living in a motorhome or campervan, they too can enjoy your adventure and not be left behind (plus you will save some money on kennel fees).
So, please bring your dog along to your campervan or motorhome hire holiday, this way the whole family can enjoy being together and create memories you’ll never forget.
Our dog friendly vehicles can accommodate two small dogs or 1 medium-sized dog. You’re welcome to give our motorhome hire team a call on 01942 77 88 99 to discuss your requirements.
The joys of traveling in a motorhome with a dog
One of our many regular hire couples, Arthur and Eileen from Edinburgh, love to take their dog on their Scottish travels. We asked them to give us their top 5 reasons why camping out with their dog Oscar is a real joy for this retired couple.
Our number 1 reason why we love to take Oscar with us is so we can all enjoy the motorhome holiday together, when we don’t take him with us we are often wondering how is doing with our friend Alice.
Secondly, we believe that bringing the dog in our motorhome allows us to build a stronger bond. We enjoy forest walks, beaches and we think Oscar enjoys these as well as us.
The next reason would be the new places we visit in the motorhome. We have explored many miles, and we hope to explore more miles in the near future. They do say new environments can be good for your dog.
I’d then say bringing the dog along with us makes us not feel guilty, this is a reason in itself. We recently went on a cruise and didn’t bring the dog. We were often talking about Oscar and felt guilty about choosing a holiday that did not permit dogs.
And lastly, I would have to say we have enjoyed time meeting new people during our dog travels. They say “dogs can connect people” and we can vouch for that. We have spent a lot of time in the motorhome campsites as well as dog-loving communities talking and meeting new people.
Dog safety tips
Mike in our hire team is also a real dog lover, we asked him to give us some tips about traveling in a motorhome or campervan with a dog and things to consider regarding your dog’s health.
I would recommend all hirers to ensure that their dog is microchipped and to keep the details up to date, likewise please ensure insurance details and dog vaccinations are up to date too.
Consider searching online in the weeks prior to your trip for the closet Vet Surgeries near to the motorhome campsite you’re staying in, in the event your dog becomes unwell in the motorhome, you will have the details ready and available.
I would also recommend that basic commands are practiced before your travels for obvious reasons! I would definitely check the leads and collars for signs of wear and tear, and replace these if there are any signs of damage. In my vehicle, I have a first aid kit ready and available for my own dog Max. In the event I need to use a muzzle, need sticking tape or control bleeding, I am well prepared.
