Dog Friendly Holidays

We Brits love our pets, and most of us would like to be able to take them on a holiday that they will love. Well, with College Cruisers you can!

A holiday on the Oxford Canal ticks every box in a doggy world – they can join in all the activities, meet new doggy friends, encounter new challenges such as walking over a lock gate, tell off the odd swan, and explore new walks with lots of exciting smells. Best of all they get to spend all day having fun with the people they love.

All of us at College Cruisers own or have owned a dog so we know that they are an important part of the family, and we have all taken our dogs boating.

For a small extra charge your pet can join your family on holiday – much better than being sent to the kennels! All we ask is £35.00.

We are just as conscious of their safety as we are of yours, so we can provide dog life jackets. We suggest that you make sure they have your mobile telephone number on their collar and ours (01865 554343) just in case they become separated from you and the boat. We ask you to bring poo bags, and bedding for your pet so they are comfortable at night, and when you leave no paw marks left behind please!

If you have any concerns or questions about bringing your pets with you, please do call us to discuss. We have had many canal holidays with our wonderful Collie Archie so can advise on most situations.
