A heart and lots and lots of space for dogs

The holiday homes in Saak are specially designed for dogs. Together you can start your walks or hikes directly from here … and enjoy many other amenities:

Dog sitting and Dog walk service

spielende-hunde-wasserWould you like to go on a bike tour or a hike, do some shopping or go to the thermal baths, treat yourself to a wellness treatment in one of the surrounding thermal spa hotels, go to the sea or just sleep in? No problem! We take care of your four-legged darling.

While you relax, we keep an eye on your dog. He is welcome to stay in the holiday home if he is already somewhat familiar with the surroundings. We record your wishes in advance, how often we visit your dog, play with it, take a walk with it and whether it should be fed. Please never leave your dog alone in the garden because it can react to noise or noises, for example from people and animals in the area, and is unattended.

For our dog sitting and dog walk service (chassis service) we ask you to register early. When booking or at the reception, by email or phone, so that we can take your desired dates into account.

Dog wellness and dog massage

We spoil your four-legged friend with relaxation and stress reduction through dog relaxation massages, coordination and balance exercises as well as trial breaks. When the weather is nice outside – or in the dog massage room of the Saak holiday home.

And of course, you are cordially invited to be there or to learn a few tips and grips at a workshop that are simply good for your dog. All this in a very relaxed atmosphere, with a good coffee or a refreshment from our tea kitchen.

The relaxation massages are suitable for all healthy dogs, whether young or old, small or large and active or rather shy.
