Holidaying with your Dog

For many people their holiday just isn’t the same without their dog – or another pet. Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to have your pet accompany you in Sønderjylland.
 

At Novasol, which is Denmark’s and Sønderjylland's largest holiday home rental agency, there’s a wide range of houses in which you can bring your dog. 

The other agencies in the area also offer houses in which you can bring your pet. - In around half of our holiday homes it’s possible to bring a pet with you, and we are experiencing a growing demand for this type of rentals, says the manager from Novasol.

The area's rental agencies make great efforts to provide services to dogowners. At several service offices you can rent a mobile fence and hire a dog-sitter while you’re on an excursion where it’s difficult to take the dog with you.

In addition, Novasol has holiday homes available that are particularly suitable for pets, including cottages with extensive grounds that have plenty of space for the dog to run around.
 

Dog-owners are very satisfied with the conditions. We’ve spoken to Lilli and Sabine Sieh from Mülheim in Germany, who’ve been on holiday in Denmark on many occasions with their German wirehaired pointer, Fietje. 

- Dogs are very welcome. As long as your dog is on a leash, you can take it onto the beach and we all know just how much dogs love the water.

During the low season, dogs are even allowed to run on the beach while off the leash.

There are attractive footpaths that are suitable for dogs, and finally the climate is ideal for dogs, with lower temperatures and humidity than you’d typically experience in the south of Europe.
