Vote for them in the DogFriendly Awards

We are delighted to announce our 11th DogFriendly Awards and you can vote or nominate for a dog friendly place or service until 31st October.

The DogFriendly Awards are your opportunity to recognise and reward dog friendly places and pet businesses that go the extra mile for the benefit of the UK’s 12.5 million dogs and their owners. Winners of the DogFriendly Awards in each of the categories are chosen by public vote.

All voters get entered into a prize draw to win £1000 to spend on a dog friendly holiday and the finalists and winning businesses are invited to an Awards ceremony in November.

Please do help us to recognise those businesses that go the extra mile for our dogs.
