Walkies with a view: the best walks and hikes with dog

Time to walk the dog? Off you go! But first, head to reception to collect some valuable tips for the best dog-walking routes near your hotel! The animal-loving Falkensteiner team knows the best walkways, dog parks and hiking paths for you and your dog. Who knows? You might find the perfect playmate for your dog there!

What’s more, your dog is free to roam during the hotel’s daily play hour (unsupervised). Frolicking around with other dogs in a safe location is a fun activity that is sure to make your furry friend “dog-tired” for a restful night’s sleep in your holiday home.   


Your dog in safe hands

You would like to spend a few relaxing hours in the wellness area of your hotel or enjoy an extended breakfast? Then why not make use of Falkensteiner’s special dog-walking service (charge)? After all, it’s so much easier to relax and unwind if you know your dog to be in safe hands, frolicking around the surrounding nature. All you have to do is book an appointment at reception!


Perfectly cared for: Your four-legged friend played a little too rough, was bitten by another dog or has caught the flu? Don’t worry! The Falkensteiner team knows the way to the nearest vet! In order to prevent your dog from catching diseases, Falkensteiner Dog Hotels only accept animals that are chipped and have a vaccination record.

Travelling with dogs: what’s important?

You have already found a dog-friendly hotel or booked your holiday at a Falkensteiner Dog Hotel? Great, then it’s time to start your travel preparations! To make it a bit easier for you, we have compiled a little checklist for your perfect holiday with dog.


Carefree dog holidays: what to pack?

The following things should definitely make their way into your suitcase or backpack when travelling with a dog:


  • dog collar with dog tag and contact details
  • leash and poo bag for walks
  • muzzle for excursions
  • copy of your dog liability insurance: this will cover small damages caused by your dog
  • European pet passport: vet certificate stating that your dog is chipped and vaccinated
  • favourite toy
  • travel bowl for food and water
  • food your dog is used to
  • for summer holidays: cooling vest and sunblock to protect your dog from heat and sun
  • dog first-aid kit: for emergencies and small injuries


You forgot something at home? Don’t worry! You can rent or buy dog gear like blankets, towels, bandanas, poo bags or treats directly at your hotel!


Tips for a safe journey

Travelling by car can be quite stressful for your dog. That’s why you should make the journey as pleasant as possible for your four-legged friend. The following tips could be helpful:


  • Don’t feed your dog shortly before the start of your journey. Keep in mind that dogs can get car-sick, too!
  • Take regular and sufficient breaks to drink and stretch your legs.
  • Ideally plan your stops somewhere in the countryside. Service station and rest stops are often unsuitable for walks.
  • Don’t leave your dog in the car in the summer heat!
  • It’s legally required to secure your dog in the car. Use dog crates, safety guards or special car restraints to keep your dog safe. If you use a crate, give your dog some time to get used to it before the journey.
  • Bring chewing bones and toys to distract your dog during the drive.


As you can see, finding a dog-friendly hotel is easy – at least with Falkensteiner! Book your dog holiday at one of our hotels in Austria, Italy or Croatia and look forward to some happy times with your furry pal! Contact the dog hotel of your choice now!
