Directory for dogs
Your dog is one of the best companions there is, and he wants to come with you everywhere. From discovering days out that you can share together to finding dog-friendly hotels, our Dog Directory will help you find just what you’re looking for. If you’re not going on an adventure just yet, use the Directory to find local vets, reliable dog-sitters, and more.
You like your pet to look his best, and he loves a bit of extra fuss and attention – so why not find a dog grooming parlour near you? If you’re going on holiday and can’t bear to leave him behind, look for dog friendly cottages and, if you like taking him on long walks, search for dog friendly pubs where you can both stop for a rest. Equally, if a vet is what you’re looking for, or dog services such as walkers or sitters to give you a bit of extra time, you can search for reputable locations near your home.
If you are out and about when you want to find a dog-friendly location, you can find the Directory for Dogs in the free ‘my dog’ app. With over 27,000 dog-friendly places and services at your fingertips, just start your search by choosing a category.
Have fun exploring!
Holidays with your dog
Dogs love a holiday just as much as you do, and taking them with you needn’t be complicated. From dog-friendly caravan parks to pet-friendly hotels, there are lots of places to choose from for your next trip.
All the entries in the Directory for Dogs are chosen to make sure that they’re dog friendly, however we do recommend that you contact holiday locations in advance just to make sure they’ll accept your dog, especially if you have more than one.
Just remember to read up on everything you need to know about travelling with your dog before you set off.
If you discover somewhere great that’s not in our directory, why not get in touch and let us know?
Have a good trip!
Places to go with your dog
Whether you’re thinking of going on holiday with your dog or you’re looking for a great day out with them, there are plenty of places that will welcome both of you. Use the Directory for Dogs to find fantastic dog friendly beaches where they can stretch their legs, dog friendly restaurants you can both enjoy, or discover dog friendly pubs for a break when you’re out and about.
Your dog is always ready to discover something new, so remember these simple steps when you’re out together:
- Don’t leave them unattended in new or public places – they might get worried and upset.
- Make sure they’re well house-trained so no accidents happen if you venture inside.
- Train them to ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘come’, and teach them not to jump up or bark at strangers – a well-behaved dog always makes the best impression!
But most importantly, have plenty of fun and enjoy your time out together!
