Dogs are such a big part of our family that we want to take them wherever we go, whether it’s on holiday or just a fun day out. From dog-friendly parks and camping sites to hotels and events, there’s a tail-wagging place for every dog and his owner to enjoy together. A popular place for dog-loving travellers in America is the Dog Bark Park Inn in Idaho, which is a giant building shaped like a Beagle, complete with doggy-themed amenities such as doggy pillows and doggy biscuits on arrival.
But you don’t have to travel across the world to have your dog-loving fun. Caroline Zambrano has put together some of the popular places of interest for dog lovers in Australia.
