Activity description
Located in Hungary’s capital city of Budapest, Dogmopolite is a very unique service that’s completely and utterly dedicated to tending to your dog’s needs while providing them with a friendly and homey environment. Dogmopolite offers boarding and grooming services for dogs, as well as a number of classes and other services. Dogmopolite’s prices depend on a number of different factors, such as considering how many dogs you intend to place in their care as well as how long you plan to use their services, but consumers who have given Dogmopolite high ratings have also raved about how low Dogmopolite’s prices are in comparison to the wide variety of services they offer. Whether you’re a dog owner who lives in Hungary or if you’re just visiting, Dogmopolite is definitely worth your time.
Step
1
Get familiarized with Dogmopolite’s services
As mentioned earlier, Dogmopolite offers a number of unique, quality services that are catered to the needs of dogs of all shapes and sizes. To see which services would be right for your dog, visit Dogmopolite’s main website and get familiarized with their services. Dogmopolite’s main website has the option to give you a quote for the price of their services after you answer a few short questions, so this should definitely be your first step.
Step
2
Plan accordingly
After you’ve learned the in’s and out’s of Dogmopolite’s services, you’ll want to plan your use of their services around your stay in Hungary; if you’re visiting Hungary as part of a vacation, you may not need to make use of Dogmopolite’s boarding services as much as someone who’s visiting the country as part of a business trip.
Step
3
Make the most of your stay in Budapest
Dogmopolite isn’t the only dog friendly place in Hungary’s capital city; there’s quite a large number of dog friendly restaurants that you and your dog can also visit while the two of you are within the capital city’s limits. Take “The Goat Herder” for example; we know, this restaurant has quite an extravagant name. But The Goat Herder also has garnered a reputation for serving great food and being very hospitable towards dogs.

Activity description
For this next activity, we want to recommend visiting a location in Hungary that isn't situated in the country's capital city. As a result, we ended coming across the Novotel Szeged while we were researching dog friendly hotels in Hungary. Located right next to Hungary's world famous Tisza River, the Novotel Szeged will happily accommodate two pets of any size for an additional charge of HUF 3100 (or just about $11.33 US) per night per each pet. That's quite a low fee for a four star hotel that's also situated right next to one of Central Europe's most iconic landmarks!
Step
1
Learn about Novotel's offerings
The Novotel Szeged has a number of services which are offered to guests during their stay at the hotel. Furthermore, quite a few of these services are dog friendly, allowing you and your dog to bond even more during your visit to the Novotel. For instance, the Novotel Szeged has a fitness center and an array of bicycles that are available for rent. You and your dog can both stay in shape during your trip to Hungary, should you stay at the Novotel.
Step
2
Visit areas surrounding the Novotel
The city of Szeged is renowned for being the third largest city in all of Hungary. As a result, there is a large number of parks and gardens that dog owners might want to consider visiting with their pets. The parks all have varying hours of operation, but most of them are free to the public and will allow dogs to be brought onto the premises as long as they are kept close by their owners and are leashed at all times.
Step
3
Walk along the Tisza River
As one might expect, there are a number of walkways and paths that have been carved out alongside the Tisza River. These areas are the perfect places to go out for a nice, long walk with your dog or even a brisk jogging session if the two of you are up for it. Best of all, these walking paths offer a great view of the Tisza River in all its glory and natural splendor!

Activity description
If there's one natural feature Europe is known for, perhaps more than any other nation in the world, it's the vast array of mountain ranges that dot the landscape and rise up towards the sky, as far as the eye can see. As one might expect, many of these mountain ranges are great places to go to hiking along as they provide both a challenging yet rewarding physical workout as well as an opportunity to see Hungary from a different perspective. Experienced hikers will likely already have a few of these ranges on their radar, but we advise that you and your dog try out one of Hungary's hiking trails even if the both of you are relatively inexperienced.
Step
1
The right hiking trail for you
Hungary’s hiking trails run the gamut of being light and easy to heart-pounding intensity. The sheer variety of the kinds of hiking trails in Hungary is undoubtedly a blessing, but it might feel more like a curse to the uninitiated. With all of that mind, carefully think about which type of hiking experience you’d like to have and then research the appropriate trail; the hiking trails around Lake Balaton are a lot easier than the Mátra Mountains trails, for instance.
Step
2
Gear up
In tow with finding the hiking trail that suits your needs, you’ll also want to get your hands on the right type of gear for the best possible hiking experience. Those of you who are looking for a more intense and physically challenging hiking trail would do well to bring along a hands free dog leash and possibly even a walking stick depending on the flora and fauna that frequent the area.
Step
3
Press forward
Completing the first few steps of this activity, you and your dog should be all clear to head out for a hike along one of Hungary’s hiking trails. Speaking from the perspective of avid hikers, we can say that this particular activity does just as much good for one’s mind and soul as it does their body. Hiking is one of the best ways to commune with nature, so to speak, and is an excellent way to relieve stress as well as see the world from another point of view.
