Introduction

The land of Israel has existed since the days of old and is both socially and religiously significant to many cultures around the world. Israel is more known for its historic landmarks than anything else by most folks around the world, but natives of the State of Israel can tell you that the country is incredibly dog-friendly as well. Places like Tel Aviv, Israel's second most populated city after Jerusalem, are major hot spots for dog-friendly activities. A number of restaurants and parks all around the country also gladly welcome dogs on their premises, so long as they're accompanied by a human chaperone.

Activity description
This pet-friendly hotel encourages visitors to bring their dogs at no extra charge. It will cost you about $200 to stay for three days depending on the time of year you visit but remember - you won't have to pay one cent more to bring your dog along with you! You can visit the Addar Hotel during any time of the year that suits your fancy but keep a few things in mind while you're deciding when to book your stay; sunnier times of the year like summer and spring tend to be the more expensive times of the year to visit. Isreal's average temperature usually numbers in the high 80's and 90's, so keep that in mind while booking as well.
Step
1
Breakfast in bed
Since the Addar Hotel encourages folks to bring their dogs along for visits, it's entirely possible to have breakfast in bed with your dog if you order your food early enough in the day. The Addar Hotel's kitchen staff will be able to accommodate diets of all kinds; regardless if you're an omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan, you'll be able to order something that'll suit your tastes.
Step
2
Lunch in the lounge
The Addar Hotel also has a large lounge area where patrons can go to hang out and order other meals beyond breakfast. The Addar is a smaller locale that operates on the "silence is golden" principle, so the lounge is the perfect place to read a book or play a game of chess. If you've got any dog puzzles on hand, this is the perfect area to let your dog play with them.

Activity description
KelevLand is a dog training service helmed by one David Sidman, who often teaches dogs in groups. You'll have to contact Mr. Sidman for a quote as he charges based on the specific needs of particular dogs. According to his bio, Mr. Sidman became a trainer after spending a number of years  training and working with K-9 units. From the information we've been able to gather, Mr. Sidman is a reputable and polite gentleman who's very enthusiastic about his profession. His classes usually go on for about an hour at a time and are scheduled weekly for the most part on days when the sky is clear and the weather is fair.
Step
1
Kelev group training
Mr. Sidman conducts his group training sessions in a fun and engaging manner, both for pets and their human companions, so you won't need to worry about your dog getting bored or distracted during training. Being there for your dog will be motivation enough for them to follow Mr. Sidman's instructions as if they were following your own.
Step
2
Gradual progress
Mr. Sidman will teach your dog an array of different commands, skills, and concepts. Naturally, some of those things are going to be easier for your dog to pick up than others. Don't get discouraged if your dog hits a point where they don't seem to be retaining information; stay calm and positive, and encourage them to try again until they succeed.
Step
3
Practice after class
It's also a great idea to continue practicing what Mr. Sidman covered during the training session for the week outside of class; whether you're at home, staying at a hotel, or walking from one point to another with your pet, try to practice as many skills as you can outside of class to reinforce them and make them more concrete in your dog's mind.

Activity description
The Hilton Beach is one of Tel Aviv's best known secrets (kind of defeating the purpose of referring to it as a secret anymore, but we digress.) The beach is located in a cove that's right next to Tel Aviv's Hilton hotel. Despite the proximity to the Hilton, you don't actually have to book a night there as the beach is open to the public. In fact, you won't really need to worry about money at all during your visit to the beach - just set aside $20 or so for beach supplies and you'll be good to go. Try to visit on a sunny day if possible for the best beach experience.
Step
1
Taking it easy
The Hilton Beach is the perfect place to just kick back and relax with your dog. So long as you bring your own towels, chairs, or mats, you can pick out any section of the beach that isn't too cluttered, set up your stuff, and soak up the sun if that's what you'd like to do.
Step
2
Getting busy
Conversely, the Hilton Beach is also big enough to go for long walks, runs, jogs, and even hikes if you so prefer. There are a few water fountains closer to the hotel section of the beach, but you'll encounter less of these the further you go so you definitely should bring your own water bottles.
Step
3
Socialize
There are going to be plenty of people at the Hilton Beach during just about any hour of the day that you can think of. Plenty of those folks will have brought their dogs along as well, so this could be a great opportunity for you to socialize your young puppies and pups.

More Fun Ideas...

Dog Wash

Yep, it's a car wash for dogs! Located in Tel Aviv is a quaint little shop that specializes in cleaning up dogs right on the spot. Should your dog end up getting sandy from playing at the beach or dirty from playing at the park, this is a great place to get them cleaned up in a relatively short time span.

K9 Style

K9 Style is a mobile pet grooming service that offers all kinds of services to pets and their parents. They proudly state that they can hook your dog up with "Summer Haircuts" and "Winter Haircuts" on their brochures as well as trim canine nails and thoroughly clean out their ears.

Conclusion

It always warms our hearts to learn about countries in which the citizens go out of their way to express their love for their pets in a major way, so we really enjoyed writing about Israel after finding out how much they adore their canine comrades. If you've been convinced to visit Israel after reading this article, then try to book your flight ASAP as the country gets tons of visitors on a daily basis. Tel Aviv is the dog capital of Israel (what with the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture noting that they had the highest ratio of pet parents in the land), so we'd suggest visiting that city first.
