Tip 3 - Provide adequate entertainment

After a hectic and busy period, you're probably planning to let all those worries slip away from you and enjoy some 'me time' for a while. If your dog loves being active, you would do well to provide plenty of entertainment.

Tip 4 - Create a private space for your dog

Once you arrive at your destination, you'll likely want to enjoy the weekend getaway with your dog to the fullest and not think about home for a while.

This is easily accomplished with the help of the dog's own basket or rug, so please make sure not to forget to bring those with you.

Tip 5 - Venture into the Dutch countryside

You can't make a dog happier than with a walk through nature. That is why a stay at a holiday park on the Veluwe, a weekend away with the dog at a holiday park near the water in the Netherlands or a holiday at a holiday park in South Limburg the ideal choice. Although you are allowed to let the dog run free in many places, it is wise to find out where the dog does not need to be leashed. It is also useful to bring a leash or hip leash for the areas where it is needed. Let those lovely walks begin!
