April 2011 is National Pet Month – great news if you take your dog, cat or other pet along with you when you go on tour.

 

If you don't want to pay boarding fees for your pet, but are planning to take a trip abroad, DFDS Seaways will allow you to leave him or her in your 'van while you're on one of the company's crossings (or in a kennel if you're taking the Newcastle-Amsterdam route). It costs from just £19 per animal; for full terms and conditions, and details of the documentation and vaccinations required, see www.dfds.co.uk/pets or call 0871 882 0885.

 

Alternatively, if you're planning to stay on these shores and visit the New Forest with your dog, be sure to take a look at this website; part of the Visit Hampshire network, it details dog-friendly pubs, attractions and more that will welcome you and your pet. Click on 'Advanced Search' at the top right, and you'll also be able to search for dog-friendly campsites.
