Did you know that over 57 per cent of Canadian households are pet owners? (That’s about 7.5 million households filled with furry friends.)
No wonder vacationing with our pets has now become the norm. Booking.com has now made it even easier to find pet-friendly getaways thanks to their brand new search platform. The new ‘Passion Search’ engine will find destinations based on your interests with everything from kite-surfing to jazz music and of course the best spots where your four-legged friends can put up their paws, chill out and join in all the holiday fun.
If you’re looking to really spoil your furry best friend, consider staying at one of these accommodations on your next trip.
