UK Pooch Getaways

As the weather is picking up and May bank holiday is nearly upon us, you may be looking for a short getaway. When it’s just you and your partner or family the hardest decision is choosing where to go, however when you have a dog it becomes a little more difficult. You are set on a place to visit, but can they accommodate your lovely pooch.

Being owners of dogs, we have had experience of leaving them on their own holiday with family members and in kennels, however when you’re staying in the UK you should expect taking them with you to be easy. There are still many places in the UK which aren’t pet friendly, however more are becoming aware of the issue and improving their services. Your pet is part of the family so why shouldn’t they get to go too?

So to save some arguments and hours of searching here are our favourite locations to visit with doggies plus places to stay whilst you’re there!
