Caravan, campervan and motorhome rental platform Camplify has teamed up with Stylish Hound to create the ‘pawfect’ dog friendly caravan and campervan to provide everything an owner and their four-legged friend would need for their next road trip.
In Australia, almost half the population are dog owners and nearly half of Australia’s vans for hire are dog friendly.
Over the last 12 months, Camplify has seen a huge spike in demand for pet friendly bookings – specifically, an increase of 190 per cent in pet-friendly booking enquiries for those Aussies wanting to travel with their dog.
Until the end of July 2021, travellers who book a long weekend (Friday to Sunday or Saturday to Monday) in the decked out Millie the Vintage Millard or Van Morrison, the dedicated dog friendly caravan and campervan, will be treated to a doggy’s dream.
The vans, available to book on Camplify, will be kitted out with an array of playful and high quality essentials from Australian dog accessories and training experts Stylish Hound, making it the ultimate puppy friendly holiday. Each guest will even receive an adorable take-home comfy matching pyjama set for them and their pup.
Stylish Hound provides all the necessities to keep dogs entertained and safe on the road. When parking and setting up camp, it’s helpful to keep dogs stimulated while you take care of any ‘human stuff’.
The dedicated dog friendly vans contain a variety of enrichment products to keep pups captivated, including a slow feeder, for hounds who like to gobble their grub in seconds, a suction lick mat for pets to benefit from a little mental stimulation and also a Hercules, a nifty tool that can be used as a chew toy or as another food bowl, providing hours of health hound entertainment.
Each van comes with a cosy dog blanket to keep your pup warm on those winter camping trips.
Many dogs love a good swim and on a road trip in Millie or Van Morrison, there are plenty of dog friendly swimming holes to explore.
To ensure pups can swim safely and have fun doing so, both dedicated dog vans come with a Stylish Hound swim jacket meaning owners and their furry friends can revel in the water.
To make sure you’re prepared on this adventure, the vans come equipped with an Adventure Pack that includes a handy pouch for treats, poo bags and a water bottle, as well as a selection of Stylish Hound No-Pull Harnesses for a variety of dog sizes.
After a day of exploring, travellers can then change into some take-home comfy matching PJs for you and your pup and wrap up in a cosy Stylish Hound blanket.
Millie is a 1974 Millard vintage caravan and has been decorated with the coast in mind. Beach vibes fill the caravan, making it the perfect road trip home with pooches who love to be by the water.
Van Morrison is a luxury campervan that has been fitted out with a variety of power options, allowing travellers to live entirely off grid any time of the year.
With luxury comforts such as a king size bed, air fryer, running water, double gas cooktop, hammock, heater and ceiling fan, the off grid camper is perfect for family, couple or solo trips with pups in tow.
Commenting on his favourite dog friendly gems for camping in Victoria, owner of Van Morrison, Delaney Stewart commented: “My favourite pet friendly caravan park in Victoria is Sambell Park in Beechworth.”
“There are beautiful well established trees all throughout the campgrounds and a lovely creek running down the back end of the sites. The caravan park is also positioned on Sambell Lake which is a magical place to cool off in summer with your pooch and watch the sunset.”
Commenting on her favourite dog friendly gems for camping in New South Wales, owner of Millie, Skye Pike commented, “there are so many fun areas to take pets when camping.”
“A popular pet friendly beach is Lakes Beach in Budgewoi while Toowoon Holiday Park is a great place to take dogs and has gorgeous beachside campsites.”
Camplify Founder & CEO Justin Hales struggled to find dog friendly vans to hire with his wife. This gap in the market was actually where the idea of Camplify came from.
“We recognise that pets are important members of the family, and are thrilled to see our community of van owners embrace and welcome them to the holiday experience,” he said.
“The idea for Camplify actually came when my wife and I were searching for a holiday that we could take our dog on.”
“Most caravans are used for just 2-4 weeks of the year, so we’re helping to bring a new lease of life to hundreds of underused leisure vehicles, whilst helping owners to boost their income by $10,000 – $20,000 a year.”
