Dogs on tour: Where you can take your pets on holiday, according to Pipper the pup
14 July 2019 @ 14:13

INFLUENCERS – or prolific social media users paid to advertise with their posts – tend to be human, but not exclusively; in fact, one of Spain's most famous is a Parson Russell Terrier who earns his living hiking around the country and reporting on his experiences.

Pîpper has just spent the last year travelling 22,000 kilometres and has now taken a well-earned summer break, but will be back on the road again in September, says his owner, journalist Pablo Muñoz Gabilondo.

With 60,000 followers on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, three-year-old Pipper is becoming something of an oracle for those who want to find out where in Spain they can take their dogs.

Hotels, shops, bars, restaurants, and even museums, monuments popular with tourists and golf courses, plus beaches, are gradually being opened up to pets; on average, 18% of holiday accommodation in Spain welcomes dogs, although the average in Europe is 40%, largely because of animal-friendly France, Italy and Germany where it is rare for anywhere to bar entry to customers' non-human family members.
