When it comes to vacations, hotels are slowly becoming a thing of the past. Thanks to applications such as AirBnB, holiday-goers are now slowly leaning towards home rentals. If you have some cash to spare, then you should look into booking your own home away from home. In Denmark, you can even book an entire holiday home for you, your family and your dog to enjoy. Prices may be a bit on the expensive side and the price range may depend on which area you decide to stay in. However, with most holiday homes being situated in the picturesque countryside, these homes are definitely worth checking out. 

Step
1
Find the perfect holiday home
These holiday homes are mostly located in the Danish countryside, offering spectacular views and lots of areas for your dog to play in. Look up a listing of Danish holiday homes and find one that has the things you are looking for and falls within your budget. Check for availability on your desired dates and make all the necessary bookings to seal the deal.
Step
2
Live as the locals do
On the day of your stay, enjoy the simple, Danish way of life. More often than not, these holiday homes feature spacious yards where dogs can move about freely. Bear in mind, however, that you need to follow the local rules associated with the place of your stay. Furthermore, make sure your dog does not destroy or damage any property to avoid any trouble with the homeowners.

Dogs are known for their eagerness to move around without restrictions and to go for a nice, long stroll with their owners. Aside from your dog’s enjoyment, another important benefit of walking is that it helps keep your dog healthy. Even when on a holiday trip, you need to keep your dog physically active and stimulated. The best way to explore new sights in a foreign place while still getting some exercise in is to go for a walk with your dog. Luckily, Denmark has some notable walking trails that you can take on with your pooch, ranging from forests and dog parks to beaches.
Step
1
Check out your options
Denmark has lots of places where dogs can go for a walk. You can search for some information on where to go or ask the residents for tips and recommendations. Some off-leash parks in Denmark include the Botanical Garden, Faelledparken Dog Park and Bernstorffsparken. You may also check out the walking trails, including the Nornalup Rail Trail and Mokare Heritage Trail.
Step
2
Go for a stroll
When you have chosen the place that you would like to explore by foot, head to the location with your furry friend. Be aware of the rules of each visited place; most parks require your dog to be on a leash with the exception of some off-leash parks. Most beaches also allow dogs, but only during certain periods or months. Don’t forget to clean up after your dog if needed!
