Vacation with the fur nose
Everything you need to know
For a vacation with dog Austria is already alone because of its scenic variety at each season a paradise for holiday-makers, who travel with their dog: There are forests, meadows, steep mountains, gentle hills, countless lakes, rivers and streams, snow in winter and bathing temperatures in summer.
Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in every accommodation. There, where they are not only tolerated, but rather desired,
it is a more relaxed vacation for everyone.
In the region Schladming Dachstein and in some of our apartments dogs are very welcome. If you wish, a dog blanket, water & food bowl and treats await you on your arrival.
A vacation with a dog is automatically connected with some preparations and in addition to your own suitcase you have to pack the "suitcase" of the dog. But what should you pack? Dogs are creatures of habit and love things they already know from home. We have put together a small list for you to make packing easier. :-)
Drinking bottle for the trip to the mountain
Address label with your contact details
Sackerl for legacies
Brush and comb
Basket or blanket
Medication if necessary
Treats in sufficient quantity
All our apartments are located in the green and the walkways are practically in front of the door. There are also some secret places
at the Enns, where your dog can cool his paws.
For the sporty human-dog teams there are beautiful paths that lead high up, kilometer long gorges,
almost untouched nature parks and mountain pastures that invite you to discover.
Speaking of herds of cows: You often meet them on hikes in Austria. In order not to provoke the basically peaceful alpine pasture inhabitants, don't go towards the cows, never try to stroke a calf, avoid them instead and move slowly. Dogs should stay very close to humans; cows often see them as a threat, especially when young animals are in the herd. If a cow or the whole herd is actually threatening the dog, you should lead it away and let it run away.
