A Pause with Paws – A pet-friendly cottage vacation spot!

We know that over 58% of travellers are looking for a vacation with their fur-babies in tow. If you are reading this, you probably have dog-friendly travel on your radar.  Here is what makes Duff’s a great spot for a dog – friendly vacation:

Space to run! Our vast property is a sprawling greenspace with a wide open yard to play fetch. 

Run-and-jump waterfront! Our sandy run out beach and wide dock are a hit for pups and children at play. The waterfront area is wide, so there is lots of room for 4-leggeds and 2-legged friends to share. 

Our guests are dog-friendly! Our guests at Duff’s have been cottaging with us for many, many years, and they are dog families themselves or understand that our furry friends are part of the summer vibe here. 

We have trails to discover! The back of our property abuts forest and a cottage road – perfect for exploring or having your dog accompany you on a morning run.

Here are some tips to ensure a great puppy-friendly stay: 

  • Well behaved dogs are always welcome off leash – please ensure that Mr. Mugs has recall! 
  • Please be mindful of noise and prevent excessive barking from disturbing other guests.
  • Please be mindful to pick up after your pets. 
  • A bonus is to pack biodegradable dog poop bags!
  • Golden Rule: Please be responsible and conscientious with your pet interacting with guests.
