Scilly Hailed As One Of Best Holiday Spots For Dog Owners
A national newspaper has promoted Scilly as one of the best places to go on holiday with a pet dog.
The Sunday Express shared the experience of journalist Victoria Gray, who stayed at Tregarthen’s with her two whippets.
She borrowed equipment from Pam Manning’s Creature Comforts service.
Pam rents a range of items, from baskets to bowls, to raise cash for the Vet Support Group and says in the last few years more accommodation providers have become pet friendly.
Pam says she’s had a bigger demand then ever this year and feels that hoteliers have finally woken up to the fact that dogs “don’t trash hotel bedrooms.”
She says there are more visitors bringing dogs to the islands and, although they’re restricted on the busier beaches in summer, she says they’re still welcome on all the coastal paths and at many local businesses.
Pam has even extended her range to include some unusual pet accessories like stair gates and lifejackets for boating.
She’s just provided a “huge” dog bed for a large Rhodesian ridgeback staying at Star Castle and the owners said the extra care their pet received actually made their holiday.
