4 Bank Holiday activities to enjoy with your pet

Whether you want to relax at home or explore the great outdoors this bank holiday, there’s no reason why your dog should miss out! With an abundance of pet-friendly venues, activities and pamper products popping up all over the UK, your furry friend can get involved and have lots of fun.

Sunny (hopefully) spring walks

If you’re looking to recharge during this Bank Holiday, how about getting out of town and spending some time with mother nature? Spring is the perfect time to enjoy a scenic walk with your pooch, taking the opportunity to experience the countryside in the warmer weather, and enjoy the foliage in full bloom.

Before you set off for a day of exploring, make sure you’ve got the essentials – plenty of poo bags, water, treats, toys and maybe a couple of towels just in case you find some muddy puddles. If you’ve got an inquisitive woofer, think about taking a short lead with you to help reduce the amount of disturbance to the local wildlife. There are a number of National Parks throughout the UK ready to be enjoyed, find your nearest park here.

Dog-friendly pubs

Bank holidays are synonymous with a little leisure time in your local beer garden, and why should your furbaby miss out on the fun? Dog-friendly pubs have surged in popularity, with hundreds of establishments around the UK ready to cater for you and your four-legged pals – whether you want an old-fashioned, rural hideaway to recuperate after a long hike or an inner-city spot perfect for socialising, you can find your local dog-friendly venue here.

Pawwfect weekend away

Why not book a weekend away that the whole family can enjoy? Including your furbaby.
