The South Asian country of India is often celebrated for its virtually nationwide love and reverence of dogs; we've already talked, at length, about how culturally significant dogs are in Hinduism in our Hinduism Dog Names Guide. Here, we have an opportunity to really dig in and divulge a number of activities that dogs in India can partake in. From walking alongside famous and well known roads in the country to visiting and exploring a number of dog friendly hotels, restaurants, and parks, there are plenty of fun activities that you and your pet can experience together while you are visiting India.
India has always been a very canophilic country and the number of dog parks and eco-friendly hotels that have been built over the years indicate that the country's continued efforts to make India an increasingly dog friendly zone. A number of different parades and festivals, such as the aforementioned Tihir festival, only happen once every year (during very specific times of that year, might we add,) so try to plan your trips to the country accordingly. Furthermore, remember to remain respectful of the indigenous animals and peoples of the land and honor their customs and traditions while you and your dog visit India.
