At Glamping with Pets, we believe that our furry friends deserve nothing but the best. It’s a pretty simple mantra (or should we say a dogma), but we ground all of our work in the idea that dogs deserve luxury just as much as their human companions. But what’s the best way to pamper our pups? Well, in our opinion, it’s to take them glamping (or glamorous camping)! Not convinced? Here are five reasons that are sure to convince you that a glamping getaway is the perfect way to show your four-legged family member that you care.
1 – Dogs need a break, too!
To go glamping is to have an adventure, to explore in a whole new way in a whole new place, away from the hustle and bustle of working life. But our pets deserve a chance to escape the confines of the city just as much as we humans do, so they can get back to nature and roam free and wild.
2 – It’s good for their health.
This is very much related to reason number one, but it’s worth reiterating. Boredom is the most common detriment to a dog’s mental health and wellbeing, from a lack of either mental or physical stimulation. Getting out and exploring together with your pup is a great way to bond, and also to expose your furry friend to a new and stimulating environment for activity.
3 – To get you moving.
We’ve all experienced the scenario of arriving at your vacation destination, tired after a long journey, only to sit down on the couch and turn on the T.V. or check Instagram.Finding motivation to get outside and discover the secrets of your secluded glamping spot will never be hard when you have your eager travel companion with you. Our furry friends are a great way to help us get the most out of our travel.
4 – To stop you worrying.
Let’s face it; going on vacation is never as stress-free as we’d like it to be, especially when we’re constantly worrying about the pet we’ve left at home. Sure, there are kennel camps and dog-sitters, but nothing beats the comfort of having your canine companion by your side, where they belong.
5 – To see the world through their eyes.
Going glamping with your dog allows you to make the most out of every moment, thanks to the way our pups make us see the world. When you walk, hike, run, or just plain sit back and gape at nature with your dog, you get to see the world as they do, where every new sight and scent is a world in and of themselves, and where every new piece of nature is an opportunity for discovery and adventure.
