A family ski holiday with your dog can be a great way to spend time together and enjoy some quality bonding time as well as some outdoor activities. But there’s also plenty that you need to think about before embarking on your adventure. Here are some tips for planning the perfect dog-friendly ski holiday!
What to Look for in a Luxury Dog-Friendly Ski Chalet
There are many different types of dog-friendly ski chalets, so it’s important to find the one that best suits you and your furry friend. If you are looking for a pet-friendly ski chalet, there are some things to keep in mind.

The first thing to consider is the location of the chalet. You want to be close enough to the ski slopes so that you can get there quickly, but not in a location that is too noisy which could alarm your pup, especially if left unattended during the day. Another thing to look for is whether or not there are any restrictions on what kind of pets are allowed. Some ski chalets don’t allow dogs, while others have restrictions on the size or the breed they allow.
Consensio operates many luxury dog-friendly ski chalets, where they allow all legal dog breeds and sizes of dogs. Choose your favourite dog-friendly ski chalet from Consensio’s luxury chalet collection below.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the right ski resort for your pet. Location, cost, and how much snow you want to see are just a few of the considerations. Many resorts not only offer luxury dog-friendly chalets, but also dog-walking services, and even dog-sitting services. If staying on a Consensio holiday in the French Alps, your dedicated concierge can arrange dog walking and sitting services across Val d’Isère, Courchevel and Mèribel. Your chauffeur can even bring your dog to you in the middle of the day to meet you for a sunny lunch together.
Dog-friendly activities while on a ski holiday
Hiking: This is a great activity for both humans and dogs alike. You can find many hiking trails that are dog-friendly and perfect for those who don’t ski or who want a day off from skiing. Hiking is not only a great way to spend time with your furry friend but also an opportunity to explore new places and take in the snowy scenery.
Snowshoeing: If you’re looking for something that’s easy on your joints and fun to do with your dog, snowshoeing is a great option! It’s also very easy to find trails that are dog-friendly, so you won’t have to worry about leaving Fido behind when you go head out for the day.

Can I take my dog skiing on the piste?
It is a common misconception that ski resorts allow pets on the slopes all day. Only rescue dogs are allowed on the pistes during working hours across most ski pistes. However, many ski resorts allow you to walk your dog on the pistes before the lifts open for the day providing owners keep their dogs on leashes or under voice control.
