Dog Friendly Days Out Round-Up - June 2022

30+ places to take your dog (tried & tested by readers)

Lots of readers have been in touch with recommendations for dog-friendly recommendations. Nowhere beats a personal recommendation so I thought I would put them altogether in a post.

This post is nice to browse through if you are looking for somewhere new to visit. I will share one of these recommendations each week on my Facebook page and Instagram stories too. It's nice to give local businesses a little shout out. 

Please note, these are genuine reader recommendations. I have not visited or tested them myself so please always double check information and which areas dogs are permitted before you visit as these things can change over time. 

If you would like to recommend somewhere, please leave a comment on this post and I will add when I can.
