Did you know that dogs need holidays too? And no, dropping your four-legged companion off at the kennels while you jet off on your exotic getaway does not count as a holiday for your pooch.

So kudos to Visit Victoria who has launched a new tourism campaign highlighting how dogs love exploring regional Victoria as much as much as their owners.

According to Visit Victoria it is the first digital tourism campaign optimised to stimulate dogs’ sight and sound, featuring content curated by local pet influencers @MyAussieTribe, @Tomandcaptain, @ChandlerThePug and @HuckAndCo.

An extension of the recently launched Your Happy Space regional Victoria marketing campaign for humans, Your Dog’s Happy Space will get tails wagging with a short-break away.

You can check out the super cute video campaign below.

Dog behaviourist and pet psychologist Dr Kate Mornement said a trip away together not only saves money on the costs of a kennel but can have positive wellbeing benefits for both human and pet.

“A new environment is not only stimulating and enriching for a dog but quality time together with a weekend away provides an opportunity for physical exercise, further develop social interaction, strengthen the bond and relieve stress.”
