Are you the kind of pet owner who wouldn’t think of leaving your precious pug or precocious long-hair Persian at home while you’re on vacation in the Dells? According to the Wisconsin Dells Visitor Bureau, you’re not alone. The number of searches for pet-friendly options on the web site, wisdells.com, is through the roof, proving people do adore their four-legged friends. So, if your vacation is only complete with pet in tow, consider these ideas when planning your next trip to the Dells.
Book A Stay On Lake Delton
At Delton Oaks Resort on Lake Delton, owner Kate Pettit says it’s not unusual for a dozen well-behaved furry animals, mostly dogs, to be vacationing in the Dells with their families at the Wisconsin Dells resort at any given time. “We also have one rabbit who’s a regular and even checked in a baby parrot once who was being hand-fed,” shared Kate. While guests are enjoying the camaraderie, pets are making friends too. “Pets bring people together to meet and talk,” said Kate, “and the kids especially enjoy the animals.” Baker’s Sunset Bay Resort on Lake Delton also welcomes pets.
Board Your Pet At Nice Digs
Wide open green space and a pretty patch of flowers greet guests of the Pet Retreat on the outskirts of Wisconsin Dells. Owned by Sandi Jordan, this kennel provides lodging for dogs and cats while their families are staying at a Wisconsin Dells waterpark resort or another people-only property in the area. There’s a large fenced-in area with kiddie pools-turned-pet pools and a grooming area too. But the pièce de résistance for the well-heeled poodle has to be the 18 suites, complete with well-appointed bed and television. “Our customers feel most comfortable leaving their pets close by and some even come to visit,” said Sandi.
Know A Vet Is Close By
