Scotland is the best country to travel with your dog. Whether choosing to explore the Scottish Highlands by road, or to stroll through the streets of Edinburgh’s historical architecture, both you and your dog will enjoy an unforgettable trip in one of the greenest countries on earth.


If you’re looking forward to combining an urban experience with a more rural one, don’t hesitate to visit Edinburgh. This city has summer festivals and the Fringe Festival, which offers plenty of theaters, art, and dances. There are also more rustic monuments, such as Arthur’s Seat. This variety will allow you and your pet to enjoy the cultural panorama and the Scottish Highlands in the most comfortable way.

The Majestic Parks of London

Don’t be fooled by the apparent simplicity of going around the park with your dog. English monarchs have been founding and expanding parks since the sixteenth century, each time it’s more vast and ostentatious. Now that they’re open to the public, they offer a unique experience to enjoy nature in the heart of London.

Some places, like Hyde Park, are so large that they require a map and several hours of excursions to be completely covered. In this particular park, you’ll find a Holocaust memorial, the Serpentine contemporary art gallery and the memorial to Princess Diana of Wales.

Visit the Berlin Trail of Mauerpark

In German, Mauerpark means ‘the park of the wall.’ This park is very meaningful because it’s located on what was once part of the Berlin Wall that fell in 1969.

For example, the Botto Machado Garden allows you to walk peacefully through its green areas, while also giving you the opportunity to visit the Feria da Ladra on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Likewise, on the quiet Avenida de Liberdade, you can enjoy Portuguese kiosks and cafes without having to worry about a thing when it comes to your dog.
