Dog Friendly Campervans
We get a lot of enquiries from people about wanting to bring their four legged friend along for the ride when they hire a campervan. Dog friendly camping Scotland is easy with Big Sky Campers because, as dog owners ourselves, we always welcome a well-behaved pooch. And why wouldn’t you want to share your campervan adventure with them?
Why would you leave them at home?
You are going to immerse yourself in some of the most beautiful, wild landscapes in the UK, so you know that your dog is going to have as much of an adventure as you are. Racing up a Monroe, swimming in a Loch, running on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It would almost be mean to leave them at home!
Most campsites welcome dogs
Dog friendly camping Scotland is available at most campsites as long as you keep them on a lead when on site. Although perhaps the most rewarding times can be had when off the beaten track, wild camping with your trusted friend by your side. It’s a good idea to have a look at the Outdoor Access Code here.
Things to remember about taking your dog in a campervan
There are a few things to remember when travelling with your dog: bring a bed with you; have a long lead with you so you can secure them to the van if you are on a site; don’t forget a dog towel for a good rub down after a days’ messing about; and, most importantly, never leave your dog alone in the campervan for a prolonged period of time. If you’re travelling with a pet, surely you want to make sure they enjoy the experience as much as you do, so you won’t want to leave them alone in the van for long anyway! Take a look at our dog policy here.
Rules for the owners, not the dogs
Of course there are a few rules: no canine lounging about on the upholstery, and always clean up after your dog, but the VW campers are plenty big enough to accommodate your dog in comfort.
Not all our vans are available for dogs, as we like to keep at least one or two doggy free for those travellers with allergies, so if you are planning to bring a pooch along on your holiday, please check with us on the availability of a dog van before booking.
