Rover Rentals - Motorhome rental in Inverness, Highlands
We know from personal experience that owning a dog is a great pleasure, but can also be problematic when you want to take it on holiday with you because many hotels and B&Bs do not allow dogs
Rover Rentals solves that problem - both our motorhomes are especially set up for people with dogs. It is more than just saying we are 'Pet Friendly', we provide canine comforts and will not charge extra for your four legged friend(s) to join you as you tour around Scotland.
Rover Rentals is a personal run business, started in August 2016, which now has two 4-berth, fixed bed, self-contained motorhomes.
We believe that this is the ideal size vehicle for a comfortable touring holiday with a dog, as it is more spacious than a campervan, easier to manoeuvre than a caravan, and gives you the flexibility to park up wherever you like as you have everything you need on board. It has been kitted out to cope with cold weather, so can be used all year round.
Within reason, we do not mind how many dogs you bring with you, provided you are happy that you'll all fit into the motorhome comfortably, and the dogs are well behaved. So far all damage has been caused by human error, not by canines!
Inside the motorhome
We realise that it's not realistic to ban dogs from the furniture, as some people allow them on at home, but if you want to allow your dog on the seats, then please make sure it is dry first (after all you have to sit on the seats too).
A good sized dog bed is provided, although we suggest that you bring along a blanket for your dog (especially if it likes to rearrange its bedding, as mine does) so that it has something with a familiar smell.
A splash-safe water bowl is provided for travelling, plus non-tippable plastic water and food bowls.
A drawer has been allocated for the dog's stuff. We provide some toys, a lead, a mitt-brush and some old towels for drying it. We suggest you bring at least one of its own toys and its own lead, collar and coats, etc. There's still lots of space left in the drawer for its food and treats.
When the sofa-bed is made up, there is space for your dog to sleep either between the front seats, on the floor by the door, or on the floor between the kitchen units and the sofa bed (depending upon the size / number of dogs).
We know that dogs are not allowed in most restaurants but that you may wish to eat out during your holiday so we realise that it's unrealistic to insist that your dog is never left in the motorhome alone (as many other 'Pet friendly' hire companies do). So we do allow you to leave your dog alone in the motorhome provided you put it in the fabric travelling cage which we provide.
Outside the motorhome
Dogs love to be outside, so we provide several ways in which your dog can be outside while you are busy inside, without it wandering off.
If you've stopped briefly, the easiest way to give your dog a bit of freedom, is to use the spiral stake with the long lead we provide. Alternatively, you can erect a netting fence to keep your dog in - it's handy for small children too!
