Dog-Friendly Glamping: Celebrating Our Lovely Pup’s Birthday
Dolly, our Parson Russell Terrier
To mark our lovely dog Dolly’s birthday on 16th July and National Dog Day on 26th August, we thought it fitting to talk about our four-legged friends and the joy they bring to our lives.
The Health Benefits of Owning a Dog
Unconditional love, ultimate companionship and never-ending entertainment are just some of the benefits of owning a dog. But did you know that a positive human-animal relationship can also help boost your health and reduce your risk of developing certain illnesses? Here are just some of the ways in which dogs can bring health and happiness to our lives…
Dogs help you stay active
Taking your dog for a walk, hike, or run are fantastic ways to introduce healthy daily exercise into your schedule. Many dog owners spend more time outdoors, dramatically improving their overall health and wellbeing.
Dogs help reduce stress
We all know that life can be stressful! Owning a pet can be an asset to your mental health, helping reduce anxiety and boost serotonin and dopamine production. Reducing stress is the key to enjoying a longer, healthier life.
Dogs help combat loneliness
Our furry friends offer emotional support and endless cuddles that help us feel comforted, reducing feelings of social isolation. It can also provide opportunities to meet new people, as you stop and chat whilst out walking.
Dog-Friendly Glamping Breaks at Swallowfields
Here at Swallowfields, we are animal lovers at heart; that’s why we welcome up to two well-behaved dogs to stay in our spectacular safari lodges! With oodles of room to freely roam and a complimentary doggy essentials pack provided, we guarantee your furry friends will feel right at home in our pet-friendly spa lodges.
With luxury dog beds, snuggly blankets, bowls, treats, and poo bags provided as standard, we’ve made every effort to ensure you and your pooch feel right at home. All our spa lodges have secure private gardens, so there is no need to worry about your pup making a run for it. There’s even an outdoor tap to wash off those muddy paws!
Malvern Hills and dogs are practically made for each other. There are plenty of dog-friendly pubs and attractions nearby and more unspoilt countryside than Fido could dream of! Your pup will be spoilt for choice with so many places for wonderfully long walks. If you fancy a day trip where dogs are not permitted, our local pet sitter can provide a trusted dog sitting service in the comfort of your lodge. We’ve truly thought of everything!
