Vacation with your French bulldog

Fortunately, French Bulldog is a very friendly, easy-going breed, so it’s not difficult to share a great vacation with them. Thanks to their relatively small body size you don’t have to worry about finding the right hotel room where they can fit. Still, there are a few things to consider when you book your accommodation.

Pet hotels for your Frenchie

Many hotels claim to be dog- or pet-friendly, but in several cases, it, unfortunately, means no more than they accept dogs in the rooms. However, it’s not enough to be accepted, look for a place where they treat your Frenchie as a guest. The rooms should be equipped with a crate and cushion, toys, water and food for Frenchies, the bathroom should come with soap, grooming brush, and towel. You have to carry less and your pup still has everything to feel home.

The best dog-friendly hotels welcome their four-legged guests with small treats, and there is water not only in the rooms but also in the restaurant and in the lobby. The chéf is happy to cook for the pups if there are any special requirements and the staff look after him or her if you have a program where only humans go.

Check the surroundings of the hotel:
– Are there dog-friendly beaches in walking distance?
– Is there a green area, garden or park nearby where you can go with him or her for a walk?
– What can you do in bad weather? Frenchies are happy to stay inside but to keep them healthy they will need some activities.

What to visit my Frenchie?

If you plan city visits, it’s better to keep a good balance of museum visits and going to public parks. Even if Frenchies are happy to be carried in a bag, it’s not ideal the whole day, or for long hours.

There are families with a four-legged member who prefer to rent a private villa where they can be themselves and their Frenchie has the whole garden for fun activities. If there’s a pool, even better, Frenchies enjoy some swimming after properly trained.

Pet-passport and vaccinations for your Frenchie

Some countries require pet-passport and specific vaccinations. You’d better check with your vet months before your trip. Be sure to take emergency medication for your puppy – or any medication they regularly take – as you have no idea how easy it is to source these on the venue of the holiday. It’s worth to have a good pet insurance to have the complete peace of mind.

To sum it up, traveling with your French Bulldog and spending your holiday with him or her is great fun if you prepare it well. However, if you prefer to travel without your puppy, – or there’s no other option – you can leave them in the care of a reliable sitter or dog-hotel.

  1. I was wondering if you allow visits to your farm. I thought it would be a nice idea to pick up the pups in person and spend time seeing the farm the beautiful pups and the hard work you all out into them

    1. Thank you for your kind words, it would be nice indeed. However, our puppies’ health is crucial to us so we cannot allow anyone to visit the farm in order to avoid infections.
