Ski Holidays with Dogs

For the animal lovers - Your dog friendly ski holidays

You wouldn't want to leave your dog all alone during the best week of the year? Take your dog skiing (not literally!). Why not bring your dog along for your next ski holiday and make them part of the memories! France is a dog-friendly country and more and more accommodations allow pets in their apartments.

Some ski apartments do limit the number of pets allowed per apartment to one, but Ski Collection has a great choice of multi-pet ski accommodation to select from too! Charges will be applicable depending on the fees fixed by the accommodation. In most cases, the only rule is that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times around the residence.

Ski holidays with 1 dog

For those who have more than one dog?

Occasionally, we find a ski accommodation that allows more than one dog to travel with the family! Listed below are a few resorts & ski apartments/hotels that welcome families that are travelling with two or more dogs:

Last but not least, some helpful hints before you leave:

  • Be sure you have the Pet Passport safe as no other documentation will be accepted. The pet must have been micro chipped and had the necessary vaccinations.
  • Dogs must be at least 3 months old to travel.
  • Label your dog: put your English number and the name of your accommodation in case you lose your dog.
  • Check that your dog is not a banned breed in France.
  • If you have a long journey ahead: remember to give your pet a light meal before you go, and pack small few snacks! It’s always good to plan to make few stops during the journey as well.
  • Don’t forget a pack additional items with leads, beds, toilets bags etc.
