We have just taken our first holiday with our nine month old pup, what a wonderful experience. Cornwall is very geared up to dog holidays and we found she was welcome into most shops and restaurants (they even had water bowls outside many). Beaches too allowed dogs, along with dog bins and notifications for clearing up. Every day, no matter the weather she had a run on one of the beautiful beaches and met so many friendly dogs. This is a new experience for us, our previous dog travelled very badly it was never an option. Our cat stayed comfortably at home with our sitter Jon and was also very happy with the arrangement!
