Palabras clave: demanda turística, mascotas, destinos, apego, viajes


Las mascotas en general, y los perros en particular, se han convertido en una parte importante de las familias y de su planificación de las vacaciones. En esta investigación se presentan los resultados de una investigación realizada a propietarios de perros en España para conocer sus percepciones en relación con la posibilidad de viajar con sus mascotas. La principal aplicación práctica de esta investigación radica en presentar una serie de resultados que pueden ser útiles para que los destinos que pretendan atraer a esta tipología de turistas puedan definir sus lugares como “dog friendly”.
