Travelling with your dog in complete peace of mind? This is too often mission impossible in France, where fewhotels still accept them. To meet the expectations of the growing number of people who want to take their favorite animal with them in their luggage, several InterContinental hotels in France welcome them with open arms and offer various ” dog-friendly” packages, whether they are puppies or adult canines!

Will pets be banned from hotels?

That’s the question you might ask when you look at the French hotel landscape. Very fewhotels accept four-legged pets in their corridors. However, these absences due to professional reasons often force the animal to adapt to new conditions of dog care. Perhaps you are so attached to your dog that you have given up travelling. Because for you, it is impossible to abandon him in a dog boarding. You are part of the same family, in a way. Having a relative or friend look after your dog is heartbreaking, and you hate to be separated from your faithful companion. Your dog should have space and the best living conditions.

No pet services

However, the reasons usually given in hotels that refuse pets are the lack of cohabitation between pets and visitors. Indeed, if their owners have an unconsidered love for their dogs, other people find them invasive. Mathilde, 26, a flight attendant, is categorical: ” I don’t go to a hotel to hear dogs barking or worse. I find it disrespectful. ” For her, it’s impossible to cohabit with dogs. Of course, dog sitting is usually the most sought-after option when you have a pet.

A hotel for dogs

Maybe you used to not take your dog with you to the hotel? That you preferred to opt for a dog-sitter? However, some hotels of a major French luxury hotel brand Intercontinental, on the other hand, accept dogs in their luxury hotel. The InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel, located in the historic heart of the Gironde capital, makes life easier for their masters by providing two bowls and a cosy basket adapted to the size of their four-legged friend in the room. Everything is done so that the pet can adapt as quickly as possible to these new conditions.
