Short trips for happy looking wet muzzles – Four-paw time-out in Germany, Austria, South and Southeastern Europe

Your dog is restless and can hardly wait to return to his familiar surroundings? In this case a short trip in Germany is an ideal option. Many holiday home providers have long since adapted to dogs. At the Baltic Sea and North Sea your four-legged friend has everything it needs for a happy dog life: Exercise, fresh sea air and sometimes even free lodging. A holiday home or hotel with full or half board near the dog beaches of Kampen, Föhr, Amrum and Husum on the North Sea coast promises a lot of fun. If the sea is too rough for you, you will find a great alternative with short trips to the Mecklenburg Lake District. Are you in the mood for green nature as far as the eye can see? Grab your dog and spend your short holiday in the Erzgebirge, Bavarian Forest or Thuringian Forest.

When the days are getting shorter and the silence of the snow cover lies over the landscape, you can expect a gorgeous snow flurry with your four-legged friend. Spend a relaxing short holiday in Austria and make the dreamlike natural scenery of Carinthia, Tyrol or southern Burgenland unsafe. Why don’t you just spend Christmas or New Year’s Eve with your dog beyond the home of the Fressnapfes? Like God in France, you live in a chic holiday home during a short break. We are sure that your dog in Aquitaine, Rhônes-Alpes, Limousin and Normandy will feel at home in your domicile in picturesque surroundings even without curly fur. If you choose a holiday home in the Midi-Pyrénées region, you can even make a detour to neighbouring Andorra.

Enjoy the sun, mild climate and a long siesta under azure blue sky during short trips to Spain. Explore the Spanish back country in Catalonia or Alicante with your dog and talk to the locals during long walks in pretty villages. Further east in Europe, but no less idyllically situated, you and your four-legged friend can expect relaxed holidays at camping in Croatia and of course at camping in Italy. Short trips in the lap of the Biokovo mountains in Croatia offer perfect conditions for relaxing days at the wonderful coastal sections of the Adriatic. Stroll on the Italian side of the Adriatic together with your darling through beautiful pine and oak forests or disappear into another world while camping in northern Sardinia. There’s no better way to enjoy Italy’s “Dolce Vita”, is there?
