DogBuddy launches Dog Friendly Pub Awards

Europe’s leading online dog sitting platform,, is launching the Dog-friendly Pub Awards, to find the UK’s best canine welcoming drinking establishments.

Over three quarters of UK dog owners will opt to spend an evening with their dog than without, and over 2/3 (70%) of dog owners search for a dog-friendly pub before leaving the house.

The results from the survey of more than 2,500 dog owners across the UK also revealed that the nation is almost unanimous that our partners must get along with our dogs, with only 2% claiming that the relationship between spouse and spaniel isn’t important.

The nations favourite dog-owning celebrity saw Paul O’Grady topping the bill with just under a third of the votes and Kate Middleton gaining 5% of the vote.

Top 5 Dog-Loving Celebrities

1. Paul O’Grady (29%)
2. Tom Hardy (9%)
3.=Graham Norton (7%)
3.=Martin Clunes (7%)
4. Kate Middleton (5%)

It’s evident that the UK cherishes its four-legged friends and dog walks simply aren’t the same without a stop at the pub, which is why DogBuddy is announcing the launch of its Dog-friendly Pub Awards, to recognise the UK pubs that go that little bit further for our furry friends.

DogBuddy is encouraging pubs across the country to embrace ‘paw power’ and welcome four legs as well as two. Not only will these ‘pawsome’ awards show some well-deserved appreciation of existing dog-friendly establishments, but also aim to promote dog-friendly values across all pubs nationwide, inspiring dog owners in the UK to discover and visit their local pubs.

‘We’re delighted to be announcing the launch of our Dog-friendly Pub Awards, to celebrate the pubs that recognise that our dogs enjoy getting out to their local pub just as much as we do. We value dog welfare and care above all, and these awards will help us to further promote happy lifestyles for both pets and their owners.” says Richard Setterwall, CEO and Founder of DogBuddy.

Voting is open as of Friday 26th August, National Dog Day, and the closing date for the competition is 31st October. If your dog-friendly pub isn’t listed, nominations are open for pubs all over the UK at
