About Family Holidays with Pets

My name is Jessica and I love to travel around this great land of ours with my husband Shaun.  At the beginning of 2012, we expanded our family with a cute bundle of fur – Loki, a Siberian Husky.  Loki loves to go everywhere with us and we didn’t think it is fair (or safe for our garden) to leave him at home alone while we went away for a quick holiday.

While I was planning our first holiday together, I was searching around the Internet for pet friendly accommodation in Queensland and the next couple of hours were spent hopping from website to website gathering a shortlist of listings.  Then with those listings, I had to throw out half the listings as they didn’t allow dogs or were out of business.

I learnt a couple of things from this exercise.  Most accommodation directories don’t cater for travelling pet owners and those that do either only have a handful of listings or are neglected and out of date.  This got me thinking that I should create my own pet accommodation directory that was easy to use, looked nice and had a regular review for the listings to ensure that information stays current. As you can see, my vision for the best pet friendly accommodation directory has been turned into reality.

What now do you ask? We are now focusing on building the number of accommodation offerings to give travelling pet owners even more options when they are planning their next journey.  If you are like us and enjoy reading about the experiences of other travelling pet owners like us, then join our Family Holidays with Pets family both here on the website and our facebook page.  Plus you can email us your story to be published on our website.
