A number of places in the country, whether restaurants or hotels, are already welcoming canine companions and furry friends. This means that you can bring them with you wherever you go, especially since they're already part of the family. But in case you're looking for less crowded spaces to make sure that they don't stress out, you can also rent a private villa with beach access to boot. Batangas, which is just two hours away from Metro Manila, is also a good option so you don't have to worry about the long drive with your pet.
