Doggy Dos and Doggy Don’ts
Don’t forget to clean up any little messes in the houseyard – nobody wants to see or clean up your doggy dos
Don’t dispose of the doggy dos in the farm house garden – YUK!
Puppies are rarely allowed in accommodation, be honest about their age and be ready to make other arrangements for pups and young dogs
Yappers are disturbing to others – make other arrangements for constant yapping dogs…
Don’t expect to be able to go on outings without your dog – unsupervised dogs are unlikely to be welcome on a working farm
Whiners are even worse – make other arrangements for dogs who pine for you whilst you are absent
Respect your owners rules for your dog.
Bring your dogs bed or bedding. Don’t allow your dog to sleep in the bed, on the bed or other soft furnishings
Many pet friendly farm stays will let you bring your dog, but some not inside the house – check their pet policy
Farm fences are rarely dog proof, and dogs that want to get out will find a way
Rangers will take a loose dog in the country very seriously – i.e. BIG FINES, and it is LEGAL to shoot a dog so keep it safe and close.
Don’t take naughty dogs
Don’t use your farms policy of being dog friendly to save on boarding fees, only take well mannered dogs on your farm holiday
Don’t take dogs that chase animals or birds – you may be asked to leave!
Dogs are not allowed in National Parks, if you go for a bushwalk – then what are you going to do with him or her?
This dog would certainly be welcome at my Farm Stay
I don’t want to go to the farm, I’d rather go get spoiled at grandmas!
