Dog friendly articles and ideas
Do you run a dog friendly business? If so can we help you reach more customers? The 2014 report for The Pet Food Manufactures’ Association estimated a UK population of 9 million dogs with 24% of households owning a dog. Many of these families prefer to include their canine pet in their leisure activities and holidays. If you have holiday accommodation where a dog can stay, or somewhere a family can take their dog for a day out, or be with them when they eat a meal maybe we can help you help them. Holiday accommodation providers that welcome dogs in the UK pay to advertise on our site, please see paragraph two below for more information. Because our mission is to help responsible owners include their pets dog friendly pubs (and other places to eat) and attractions (days out) that welcome dogs can advertise with us free of charge (basic directory entry plus hyperlink - photos are charged). Individual holiday accommodation that welcome dogs in Europe (excluding the UK) can also advertise without charge on the same basis although we reserve the right to charge for multiple entries. We also reserve the right to refuse applications.
We realise there are lots of advertising opportunities and it can be difficult to decide which ones to take up. We hope our competitive rates and targeted directories utilising our own considerable experience as dog owners means we provide a value for money service for advertisers and a wealth of information for dog owners.
Images should be sent in Jpeg format to the email address shown on the application forms. Advertisers must provide us licence to use all images provided to us. They must hold copyright or a licence that allows us to use every image.
There are reduced rates for dog friendly businesses that want more than one directory entry; second and subsequent directories, hyperlinks and photos are half price. Work out for yourself how little dog people business you will need to gain to recoup the cost.
Special rates apply to agency advertisers. Agencies should contact us to discuss individual needs and to agree bespoke rates.
We also offer a range of image based banner advertising opportunities. These are located in 'Side Bars' (on every page) and 'Bottom Spaces' (on the home page and a wide selection of others). To find out more about utilising one of these spaces please contact us.
As active dog friendly customers we know how difficult it is to get the best from our leisure time whilst including our dogs. It's rarely easy to find good dog friendly places to eat, holiday accommodation and places to visit on short breaks or holidays. Even on local days out it can be difficult to find a good dog friendly pub or place to visit with our dogs. We aim to provide all this information in one easy to use site. Obviously, much of this information will be of use to anyone wanting to make the best of their leisure time in the UK - whether or not they have a canine friend.
