Paws across Britain is a collection of all the dog friendly places and things that we love, featuring our Lhasa Apsos Elsa & Buffy.
Background | When my husband and I decided to get a puppy in 2014, many of our family and friends tried to warn us that a dog would tie us down. "You won't be able to have the same lifestyle", they warned. "You can't just eat out or go away for the weekend whenever you want to when you have a dog!"
The truth is that our lives haven't been the same... I can't remember what it's like to have a lie in or eat a meal without being watched, and I won't go into detail about the joys of cleaning up after dogs (both ends)! However, as far as our lifestyle was concerned, Elsa actually made us more adventurous. We wanted to include her in every aspect of our lives from the very beginning and we're fortunate enough to live in a beautiful country that offers so much to enjoy with your dog from beaches to ancient forests, castles, cities, towns and villages. Once we started looking for dog friendly locations a whole world opened up to us and we've been to places that we wouldn't have even known about before we had a dog, and made some wonderful new friends in the process. In fact, we're so immersed in this lifestyle now that I can't even imagine a future without dogs!
In 2019 we welcomed Buffy into the Paws across Britain pack and we're continuing our adventures as a family of four.
Paws across Britain began as a platform to share our favourite dog friendly places with a wide audience, but it has evolved into so much more:
At the heart of the blog we feature dog friendly locations such as pubs, restaurants, hotels, shops, attractions and other places that you can visit with your dog. Each post gives an overview of the place and any special features that are aimed specifically at dogs. In addition to this we also share our favourite products, post articles about dog-related subjects (e.g.: grooming) and activities like Geocaching that you can enjoy with your dog. We love to attend charity events and actively fundraise whenever opportunities arise to 'suppawt' the dog-oriented organisations, people and paws that we care about.
The Future | Our aim is to provide readers with a truthful, useful, helpful and down-to-earth account of our experiences. We are wholeheartedly devoted to supporting the businesses, charities and people who love dogs just as much as we do and we will continue to do so with the encouragement of our followers!
