Dog friendly holidays in Spain | NOVASOL

Dog friendly Spanish cottages

Your next holiday lettings spent with your favourite four-legged friends should be with one of NOVASOL’s various villas in Spain. Searching for this special holiday home status on pets really is simple with our site. Simply look for an area in Spain you would like to visit and then select a house and check for the green icon reading ‘pets allowed’ or even ‘very pet friendly’. You will soon be well on your way to enjoying playing catch with your canine friend in the gardens of our Menorca villas, or taking a walk down Las Ramblas in Barcelona.

Dog-friendly holidays – General information

Before renting your apartments in Spain, do some research into local rules regarding pets. Please note, for example, that in some autonomous communities a muzzle is compulsory and on public transport and most restaurants dogs are not allowed. Unfortunately, poison bait is still left for strays, so please keep your dog on a leash during your villa rental in Spain. Sandflies that transmit Leishmaniosis are also very common in Spain, so please talk about this with your veterinarian before arriving at your Spanish accommodation.

Dog friendly cottages – Entry requirements

Dogs, cats and ferrets younger than 3 months are not permitted entry into Spain. Health certificate (also in Spanish): Your pet must have been examined in the five days prior to the departure from the country of origin. A passport, microchip and proof of rabies vaccination must be shown with a vet certificate drafted in the 10 days prior to departure at least in Spanish. Owners of dogs belonging to the classified as potentially dangerous breed should apply to the competent municipality in Spain or the autonomous government for registration before arriving at your villas in Spain.

Walks on the beach – Villa rental Spain

That being said, a beach holiday with a dog in Spain is not ideal as there are barely any beaches which allow this and a dog ban on all beaches in Spain also applies from June until October. There are only some deltas that flow into the sea, where it is possible for your dog to swim in the water freely. The information on this page is compiled to the best of our knowledge. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee it is entirely up to date. Please check carefully before departure the current regulations for entry to Spain – whether you rent Lanzarote villas or Madrid apartments.
