While making a booking, always mention that you would like to bring your pet, even if the accommodation is openly pet-friendly. Ensure that the pet’s vaccination and flea and worming treatments are up to date before embarking on the holiday. Take longer breaks on your car journey so that your pet can relieve themselves, stretch themselves and rehydrate. Check and observe the off-lead areas of your accommodation and the surrounding areas like beaches and parks. So, which pet-friendly holiday destination are you planning to go in New South Wales?
