South Australia is well known for its wine regions, perhaps the most famous is the Barossa Valley but equally as good are McLaren Vale and the Fleurieu Region, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills but wait there is more…Eden Valley, the Limestone Coast, the Riverland and even the Southern Flinders.
You betcha! Our feeling has always been that dogs enrich your holiday experiences, they are the ones that will always go with you for a walk even if it’s when the sun is rising or after the sun has set.
We have always been kelpie owners and we seem to have been lucky in that after the initial mad puppy stage they have been obedient, eager to please, and intelligent dogs.
Most of our holidays over the years have involved taking the dog too. In fact a lot of times it’s the deciding factor in where to go for holidays. Is it dog friendly? Can you have a fire? Is it close to the water? Does it have a view? Walking distance to town / food / pub? All of those questions come in to play when we are looking for the next destination, but the dog one is a biggie, after all they are part of the family. Of course they have to be on leash at all times in caravan parks and not making a nuisance of themselves and ALWAYS clean up after them.
Our dogs have all been kelpies, we’ve found them to be extremely intelligent and well behaved, they’ve rarely barked, loved the great outdoors and a run on the beach and are absolutely no problem on holidays. They are also very friendly with other dogs, adults and children and have great personalities.
