It doesn't always have to be the long plane or car trips that keep dog owners going on vacation without a dog. Also, the holiday simply cannot be made for your animal partner, for example if you want to go on a hike and your dog cannot do it because of poor condition or because of an illness.
Go on vacation without a dog
If the four-legged friend cannot go along, there are various ways you can have your dog looked after in separate time. At best, he stays with family, friends or acquaintances who know him and with whom he is in good hands. If this option is not available, you can entrust it to a professional dog sitter or place it in a kennel or dog hotel.

With regard to third-party accommodation, it is important that you register your dog there in good time - especially in the summer holiday season, many dog hotels and guest houses are quickly booked up.
Requirements for the separate time
Some dogs are so fixated on their owners that they suffer a lot if the owner and owner are not there for a few days. An intensive friendship between humans and dogs is primarily a good thing, but your dog should also be able to spend time with other people without any problems. A well-socialized dog can engage with other people for the holiday season without getting depressed. At best, the interaction with other dogs is not a problem, so that your darling can bridge the time without you, for example, by playing with other dogs.
