Texel is an ideal holiday destination for dog-owners - we are more than delighted to welcome you and your faithful four-legged friends to the island! A large number of holiday establishments accept pets, as well as many restaurants and beachside operators.
Various holiday properties allow dogs. Some establishments even accept more than one. When you make your booking, you should always inform them you intend to bring your pet. Our extensive list of accommodation includes a large number of dog-friendly properties. Choose type of accommodation and then filter by ‘pets’.
You can let your dog run free on many of Texel’s beaches. On lifeguarded beaches and the nudist beaches at Den Hoorn and De Cocksdorp, dogs must be kept on a lead however. South of the section with beach-marker 8 and between 12 and 21, dogs need to be kept on a lead between 1 March and 1 September.
In principle, your dog can run free in Texel’s coniferous woodland areas and also in Krimbos. In these woodland areas, it is not forbidden for dogs to be off the lead. Only in areas where there are grazing sheep or cattle should you keep your dog on a lead. Give your dog a good run-around on these woodland trails!
You may not have heard of them before, but they really do exist: the dogwash! At De Krim holiday park and at Duinpark De Robbenjager in De Cocksdorp it’s possible to have your dog washed, with or without shampoo and conditioner, or to have ticks removed.
The Texel veterinary practice at Keesomlaan 11 in Den Burg is staffed by four qualified vets. Consultation is by appointment only. The surgery is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Mondays to Fridays and for emergencies during out-of-office hours. Tel. 0222-312527.
Sign up for the special dog-friendly Honden Uitwaaiweken! This is a holiday package for you and your dog, where you can take advantage of expert advice remedial training for your dog. This special Texel deal is organised by qualifieddog-coach Jos Oosting.

Here, you can post all sorts of friendly advice and tips and ask questions about spending a holiday on Texel with your dog.
