We are so excited to announce that our first ever dog-friendly travel guide is now on sale!
Over the last few months, many of you reached out to us to share how difficult you find travelling with your dog. Not because your dog is naughty or troublesome but because it can be an absolute struggle to work out where to go. As those of you who follow us online will know, with family interstate we travel all the time. And like you, whenever we travel we always bring our golden retriever Indy along. But man, can it be hard! Working out whether a venue has enough outdoor seating, umbrellas for shade, whether there are any time restrictions at the beach… it can all become very stressful very quickly. And don’t even get me started on how difficult it can be when it rains!
But travelling with your dog shouldn’t be a stressful experience. It should fun and full of wonderful memories. So to help, we’re launching a new travel series called ‘Dog-Friendly Getaways.’ It’s not just another list of places to stay or a bullet list of off leash parks. Our Guide is full of ALL of the fun that makes up a holiday. Whether you’re looking for dog-friendly places to eat, drink, shop, play or stay, we’ve travelled up and down the coast and found the best for you!
The first issue in our new ‘Dog-Friendly Getaways’ series is all about Victoria’s Coast. It’s an epic 100+ page digital guide jam-packed with dog-friendly cafes, hikes, beaches, markets and suggested itineraries to help you plan your next family holiday. Summer, winter, rain or shine, our guide helps you work out which activities will best suit you and your pooch.
If you’re looking for something specific, our first issue includes: Aireys Inlet, Anglesea, Apollo Bay, Barwon Heads, Blairgowrie, Inverloch, Lorne, Ocean Grove, Phillip Island, Point Lonsdale, Port Fairy, Portarlington, Queenscliff, Rosebud, Rye, Sorrento, Torquay and Venus Bay. It also very briefly touches on dog-friendly activities in East Gippsland. It is not an exhaustive list of dog-friendly venues or activities by any means. Rather, we’ve tried to identify places that offer welcoming and quality experiences for you and your doggo.
For those wondering whether any of the content in the guide has been sponsored, the answer is no. Every meal and bed we paid for ourselves. Hopefully this means you can rest easy knowing the Guide features places we’ve been and loved or were recommended by locals. We’re not pushing any products or venues. This guide is all about sharing our knowledge with you, our amazing readers. So if you love what we do and you’d love to see more of it, make sure to buy a copy and tell all your friends. Our sales will allow us to make more issues and deliver new and improved content for you.
You can find out more about the latest issue on our Travel Guides page or buy it now online.
A big thanks to all of you who supported us along the way with suggestions, ideas or simply encouragement. We look forward to hearing all of your feedback on our social media channels or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
