Luxury Dog-Friendly Holidays
At Scamper-holidays we love well-behaved dogs, just like our darling west-highland terrier Woody - the original Scamp!
Dogs are welcome (up to 3) in all of our luxury accommodations so that your loyal friend can enjoy the break just as much as you do - we simply ask for a valeting charge of £30-£40 should you wish to bring your furry friend along.
We can also provide a blanket, dog bowl, small towel, poop-bags and dog treats upon request for use during your stay, to make them feel just as welcome.

Scamperholidays & RSPCA top tips for warm weather:
- Please ensure your dog is able to move into cooler, ventilated environment if he/she is feeling hot
- Never leave your dog alone in the vehicle or accommodations. Ensure your destination is dog friendly as you don’t want your day out to be ruined!
- If you have to leave your dog outside, you must provide a cool, shady spot where he/she can escape from the sun at all times of the day
- Make sure your dog always has a good supply of drinking water, in a weighted bowl that can’t be knocked over. Carry water with you on hot days and give your dog frequent small amounts.
- Walk your dog early in the morning or later in the evening. Never allow your dog to exercise excessively in hot weather.
- Dogs can get sunburned too - particularly those with light-coloured noses or light-coloured fur on their ears. Ask your vet for advice on pet-safe sunscreen.
