It’s quite normal to take your dogs with you when you go camping, but that’s because you are generally using your own tent and bedding etc – so it’s nice to know that there are quite a few dogs welcome glamping accommodation providers, so your dog can go glamping too!
If you have a dog like mine, who doesn’t like to be left behind, then this must be music to your ears if you have been wanting to go glamping, yet not found a solution to your dog-minding problem! Always double check with the glamping provider first to make sure that they still accept dogs, so you don’t rock up with your pooch only to find they have changed their rules!
Remember to always follow the Countryside Code in particular; and quoted from Natural England’s website ‘It’s always good practice (and a legal requirement on ‘Open Access’ land) to keep your dog on a lead around farm animals and horses, for your own safety and for the welfare of the animals. A farmer may shoot a dog which is attacking or chasing farm animals without being liable to compensate the dog’s owner. However, if cattle or horses chase you and your dog, it is safer to let your dog off the lead – don’t risk getting hurt by trying to protect it. Your dog will be much safer if you let it run away from a farm animal in these circumstances and so will you.
Everyone knows how unpleasant dog mess is and it can cause infections, so always clean up after your dog and get rid of the mess responsibly – ‘bag it and bin it’. Make sure your dog is wormed regularly to protect it, other animals and people.’
Despite Glossy Glamping being a very new site, we already have some great dogs welcome glamping accommodation on our site (directory coming soon):
