"If you don't own a dog, at least one, there may not necessarily be anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life." – Roger Caras

These characterful creatures can become your best friend pretty quickly and before you know it, your day evolves around their schedule – have they been fed? Walked? Played with? But that is what being a dog owner is about, and we are yet to meet someone who doesn’t love it! Having a dog improves not just your happiness levels, but your fitness levels and your social life too with great opportunities to meet new people out and about on the daily wanders.

Whilst there are many people who like the freedom of not having a pet, many love the companionship and fun that comes from having a dog. The PDSA states that 26% of the UK adult population have a dog which is an estimated 9.9 million pets – that’s a lot of dogs! Over the years, with this increase in pet owners, it’s only made sense for businesses to accommodate the four-pawed community themselves. Leaving the dog at home no longer needs to be a necessity or a challenge now; you can just take then with you – even to a yoga class!

Today there are so many more options for people with pets to include them in their social life with pet-friendly cafes and pubs, and even the occasional bar! Beaches, parks, tourist attractions and even museums open the doors to your doggy pals, so there is no reason why the dog can’t come on holiday too.

At Cottages in Northumberland, we value all members of your family and that extends to the pooch so we are excited to share this selection of dog-friendly cottages with you today…

General doggy rules: Dogs are asked to keep out of the bedrooms and off all of the furniture, this makes things easier for the cleaner. Owners are asked to pick up after the pup in the garden and when out on walks. 

Three is never a crowd on a romantic retreat with the pooch…
