The Five Paw Pet-Friendly Accommodation Awards were created to give recognition to outstanding accommodation providers.
The most important qualification for a Five Paw rating is that accommodation facilities make dogs and their owners feel like valued and welcome guests.
With the launch of our new website, we have integrated a voting system that allows guests to input their ratings and reviews directly to a Holidaying with Dogs property listing. However, because we have only been up and running for a few months, not all properties have been given that opportunity yet.
So, this year, we will be running the awards in a slightly different way. The 2017 Awards will be conducted by asking the public to vote for their favourite properties, based on the following four categories.
Each person will be required to provide a rating out of five for each category. The top-rated* properties will shortlisted as finalist and winners will be selected by our panel of guest judges, for each state or territory.
Panellists are made up of past 5 Paw Winners** from around Australia.
The 2017 winners will be announced in January 2018.
Best of luck to all property owners!
*scores will be averaged across the four voting categories
**Past 5 Paw Winners will not be able to vote in their own state or territory
