What are the most pet friendly countries?

The holiday season is in full swing and the travel restrictions related to Corona have led many to love roaming. That’s why the promising sunshine is sure to entice you to travel more.

Meanwhile, 34.9 million dogs, cats, small mammals and birds live within the Germans’ four walls. One million more animals than before the pandemic.

The pandemic led to a pet boom: Many people living in the home with no way out wanted a four-footed companion. George Muller, president of “IVH”, suspects that “the trend towards four-legged friends, especially dogs and cats, which has continued for many years, has certainly intensified in 2020 due to the special home office conditions during the Corona crisis.”

Vacationing with your dog in Germany prevents stress from four-legged friends

But now the first vacation is on the agenda of many of these owners. But what do you do with a fur nose? It is best to bring your dog with you when traveling! Although there are many dog-friendly attractions abroad, Germans who have pets would like to vacation in their own country.

why not? After all, there is so much to discover at your doorstep: from the Black Forest to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains to the North Sea or the Baltic Sea – there is something for everyone here. In addition, the cuddly fur noses survive the hardships of long journeys.

The portal identifies the most pet-friendly federal states in Germany

However, the search for comfortable and at the same time affordable accommodation for four-legged friends in Germany is often a huge task. It’s a challenge to find an attractive accommodation that meets the needs of both types. Even dog owners don’t want to live in a moldy landfill with stains on the carpet and curtains.

That is why the online portal HomeToGo, which specializes in booking and renting vacation accommodations, has listed the federal states most suitable for dogs. The portal displays the results in the “Holiday with Dogs Index”. She determined this based on the number of all amenities in her system that had a “pet friendly” filter option. HomeToGo has included average nightly rates in its rating.

Schleswig-Holstein is most pet-friendly – but expensive too

Schleswig-Holstein is the leader with 28 percent of shows rated as “pet friendly,” followed by Mecklenburg-West Pomerania at 27 percent and Saxony-Anhalt at 25 percent of pet-friendly offerings. Bremen brings the ass. Only about 19 percent of the holiday homes and apartments advertised in the Hanseatic city are “pet friendly.”

The rescue of foxes goes on vacation with their dog in Saarland: the cost of a night there is between 76 and 84 euros. On the other hand, it becomes exorbitant in North Rhine-Westphalia from 156 to 220 euros per night and in Schleswig-Holstein about 140 euros.

Claw-certified accommodation with weft effect at DeineTierwelt . Market

So that your dog can accompany you on all your adventures, whether in the mountains or on the beach, DeineTierwelt has also created a holiday category for animal market accommodation. Best of all: Together with the German Tourist Association (DTV), creator of the star rating, we’ve introduced the first official dog paw rating for dog-friendly holiday homes and apartments.

For every home in our system, DTV awards one to five feet in exchange for “dog friendship.” The more paws, the more suitable the place of residence for dogs. The score is determined by an expert based on 32 defined criteria. Among other things, it takes into account whether there is a dog shower, suitable floor coverings for dogs, or free jogging areas. It also checks if there are partnerships with local vets and dog breeders. In the search, you can filter by the number of stars as well as by the amount of paws. This way you will find weft-effect accommodations that perfectly meet not only your needs, but also those of your beloved furry friend.
