A CHRISTCHURCH holiday park is encouraging dog owners to take their four-legged family members away with them.

Hoburne Park in Hoburne Lane offers a range of dog-friendly camping pods and caravans as well as open space, a nature trail and nearby beach walks for you and your furry friends to enjoy.

Rod Tucker, managing director of Hoburne Holidays, said: “As a family-run business, we understand that our dogs are just as much a part of the family as anyone else, and that it’s important to provide dog-friendly stays at our parks for those who wish bring their pet with them on holiday.

“Given the expense it can cost to find alternative accommodation for the family dog while our holiday guests spend time away from home, and the variety of activities which are perfectly geared up for dogs to enjoy, it was an easy decision to make to provide inclusive stays for families with pets."

Mr Tucker said they had seen more families taking their dogs to Hoburne holiday parks.

He added: “We expect this trend to continue with greater numbers of family pets joining the rest of the family during their holiday, and will look to explore further options to make our holiday parks even more appealing for the dogs who come along with their owners.”
