As a self confessed ‘crazy dog lady’ I take Pops and Gertie to as many places as possible with me. They’re my little partners in crime and to me the world’s a better place when they’re by my side.

Over the years, I have discovered that there are an increasing number of places that will accept dogs, yet I struggled to find this information anywhere online. With a strong belief that dogs are family, I have made it my mission to do something about it and create a useful resource for all dog owners to use.

Dogs are our loyal friends, they deserve the very best quality of life. That’s why Dotty4Paws is all about being able to include your dog in your life. Or indeed, to be able to find a service that suits their needs. If you’d like to find out more, you can read our blog A Directory of Dog Friendly Places and More..

With all of our listings there is the option for customers to review their experience. This facility is intended to provide constructive and friendly feedback to the business you have used.

Most importantly it’s intended to give informative information to fellow Dotty4Paws customers.

A One Stop Shop for All Things Dog

My long term vision is to make Dotty4Paws a ‘one stop shop’ for all things dog. A place where dog-owners can discover new places to go with their pup.  Somewhere ‘pawrents’ can sniff out a gift for their discerning hound or a fellow hound-loving human!

Dotty4Paws also advertises pet care services who can look after your canine companion in your absence. Services such as dog walkers, doggy daycare centres and dog boarding facilities.

Fundamentally Dotty4Paws is all about ensuring that our furry friends are treated as members of our families. That they are given the respect and consideration they deserve.

In addition to directory, each registered business will receive a Dotty4Paws ‘dogs welcome’ sticker to display in their window.

So, if you’re out and about, see if you can hunt one down! And please send us a photo if you do.! It still makes me deliriously happy when I spot a sticker, or even better someone else spots one and sends me a picture!

I hope you find the website a useful resource. If you discover, or know of, a dog friendly, or dog related business that you think should join the Dotty4Paws pack, please contact us and I will see if they’d like to join our pack.

Thank you for visiting our website.
