Dog-friendly TOP 10 Holiday Parks

From dachshunds to dalmatians, and collies to cavaliers, no matter what shape or size your dog takes, we know they are a big part of the family. At TOP 10 Holiday Parks we recognise that for many travellers a holiday is not complete without their dog, which is why over 80% of our holiday parks welcome responsible pet owners with their dogs that are well socialised and properly cared for.

Each of our dog-friendly holiday parks have few simple guidelines to ensure you, your dog and other guests have a good experience throughout their stay. To avoid disappointment, please phone or email ahead to the TOP 10 Holiday Park of your choice and make yourself familiar with the rules and pet requirements of that holiday park before booking and arriving. Each park’s guidelines and requirements differ, and the owners have developed these guidelines to ensure a comfortable, enjoyable and safe stay for all park guests. This does mean that some parks may have dog-free areas of their park, most holiday parks have dog friendly camping, motorhome and caravanning sites but only a small handful have pet friendly roofed accommodation like cabins and units, and some parks will have certain block out dates where pets cannot be brought to the park. Sticking to the policy will allow these parks to continue to accept dogs wherever possible. When travelling we also encourage dog owners to check the council website and read the signs at each local beach/park to make sure they’re following the rules in place.

For many of the remaining TOP 10 Holiday Parks, there are council regulations and laws in place that prevent them from accepting dogs on premises. Others have made the choice to remain dog-free for conservation reasons in a bid to protect their native animals and bird life and the kids of other guests in the park.

If you are someone who lives with the support of a Disability Assist Dog then you are absolutely welcome to bring them to stay with you at any of our 50 TOP 10 Holiday Parks, even if their holiday park name doesn’t appear in the list above. All TOP 10 Holiday Parks accept assistance dogs. The dog must be one that’s been certified as a “disability assist dog” by an approved organisation like the Blind Foundation, Assistance Dogs NZ or Hearing Dogs for Deaf People NZ. If you are travelling with an assistance dog, we ask that you please let us know in advance so we can make sure our staff are aware and are prepared ahead of your arrival.

If you are planning on going on a holiday with your pet, want to explore pet friendly accommodation options, or have any questions about TOP 10 Holiday Parks’ dog policies, please feel free to give us a call.
We hope to welcome you at a TOP 10 Holiday Park soon.
