A dog’s loyal characteristics makes having a doggo feel like having a human child.
They follow you everywhere, and can be clingy at times – especially when you’re about to leave the house!
Sometimes it’s their begging puppy face, or your own separation anxiety that makes it impossible not to bring them along.
Luckily, Bali is an incredibly dog-friendly island with many restaurants, cafes and spots that allow your fur-kids to join you.
