Brexit (when it eventually arrives) may mean changes for Brits visiting Europe with their pets. But until then, taking a Torrevieja holiday with your favourite four-legged companions is a relative walk in the park (if you’ll pardon the pun).

Want to find out more about how to travel in Europe with your pet? We’ve already covered the subject from pet passports to vaccinations in this handy article.

The sunny Costa Blanca town of Torrevieja is a paradise for dog lovers and their pooches, with plenty of specialist services available for visitors travelling with their faithful friends. Home to fantastic walks (for both dogs and owners), plenty of seaweed to roll in and lots of flexible self-catering accomodation to enjoy, this charming Spanish destination is a hit with canines and their companions.

Whether you’re looking for someone to walk your dog while you sip a cool cerveza in the shade, a dog-sitter to look after your pet while you explore more of the region (or pop back to the your home country for a bit!) or a groomer to make sure Fido looks his best, these local services will do just the trick…
