Sustainable Travel with a Dog

The next travel destination is selected and the search for a fitting hotel begins. What is almost already a challenge on its own, is even more difficult for dog owners! Not many hotels allow pets and thus dog owners often simply get a dog sitter for at home, who takes care of the best friend during vacation.

But it does not have to be that way! Sustainable travel with a dog is possible, as two green pearls in Austria and Germany show! Here, dogs are not only allowed, but actually welcome!

Vacation with 4 Paws in East Tyrol

Travelers, who arrive at Gradonna Mountain Resort in Kals am Großglockner with their favorite four-legged friend immediately realize that it is not only a paradise for themselves, but also for their dog. The resort is car-free – that is not only great in general, but especially for dogs, which can then enjoy happy runs around.

In the room, a small surprise awaits the furry creature: a dog travel box with a few treats, a bowl and a soft dog blanket so that the dog has it comfy in the room, as well.

In an informational brochure, dog owners find a list of recommendations for taking the dog for a walk and even hiking trails that are dog-friendly. With a „peak ticket“, dog parents can use the mountain railways and thus take on elevated hikes with their four-legged company – completely without panting.

Blogger Olga from La Petite Olga has just recently spent a weekend with her dog Teddy at Gradonna and they both were impressed:

We immediately tried one hike on Saturday with gorgeous weather and Teddy would have loved to stay here, as he loves mountains and long walks.

At Hofgut Hafnerleiten, dogs are as welcome as the guests! In all „Langhäusern“ and in the „Teichsuiten“, guests can take their dog along and do not have to miss out on having their best friend during vacation.

Especially the house at the forest is suitable for sustainable travel with a dog. The house not only has a small dog house, but also is located right by the forest. From here, dog owners can immediately enjoy a walk with the dog in untouched nature. Afterwards, the furry friend can catch its breath and freshen up for the evening in the „dog wash“ in front of the house. Dog towels, a dog bag and a bowl are of course also in the house!

There is a lot of room for walks with the dog.

When the dog owners head to the main house for dinner, the animal companion can come along – because dogs are also welcomed here! There, dogs can lay comfortably in the corner or spend time with the house cats that are used to dog company.

A very special highlight for the four-legged visitors at Hofgut Hafnerleiten are the homemade dog cookies. The recipe for the cookies can be found here.

Blogger Michaela from Transglobal Pan Party was also very excited about the friendliness of Hofgut Hafnerleiten concerning dogs:

Rarely were my little one and I greeted so heartily. (…) The fireplace in our house was also the favorite spot of my dog, nice and warm with a great view onto the fields.

Sustainable with a dog thus is not only possible – but a great experience for all involved!
