17 reasons why dogs make great travel companions

There are plenty of dog lovers within the BIG4 family, and we love it when we can enjoy pet-friendly holiday adventures. In fact, some among us even cheekily suggest that our dogs make better travel buddies than our partners!

All this love for our pooch pals got us thinking – what is it about dogs that make them such great travel companions?

The subject is even more pertinent now that more than a third of BIG4 Holiday Parks offer pet-friendly accommodation. So let’s pay tribute to Rover, Rex, Ruby, Randy, Ralph, Roxy, and Rollie with 17 reasons why dogs make the best travel buddies.

1. Dogs are always excited about a holiday.

2. Yet travel light.

3. Dogs don’t ask ‘are we there yet?’.

4. And don’t complain if it’s raining.

5. They never grumble that the walk is too long.

6. Or that the water is too cold.

7. Although dogs make friends with ease…

8. …They never forget their roots.

9. Dogs are always fun to play with.

10. And patiently wait for you to finish socialising.

11. They’re always happy to pose for photos.

12. And love a good ol’ afternoon nap.

13. Dogs never talk back!

14. Not only are dogs always happy to see you in the morning…

15. …They don’t hog the bathroom.

16. Dogs are always there to share your most memorable holiday experiences.

17. And are sure to be with you at the end of the day.

If you’re going to embark on holidays with dogs, it all starts with BIG4.
