Special note:

The term “dog-friendly” can mean a lot of things and if you don’t want any inconvenient surprises, it is not enough to just use the filter “Pet Friendly” when you’re browsing for hotels on Booking.com. Always make sure you reach out to the property and ask what exactly their dog-friendly policy means to them: what kind of dog size they allow, do they provide any dog essentials in the room, how much they charge for a pet fee, and so on.
