I’ve been very slack with blogging what I’ve been up to recently – hey, I’ve been busy! So, I thought I’d share a few of my recently published features in Dog’s Monthly magazine for any crafty pet parents out there! Do let me know if you try any of them!
I’m happy to be working with Dogs Monthly magazine again, providing them with a monthly DIY tutorial. Dogs and crafting – what’s not to like! Here’s my first project, how to create pop art inspired bowls – sure to brighten any feeding area.
I was commissioned by Best Western to write a holiday guide for dogs and their owners pinpointing the best hotels and holiday destinations in the UK to take our four legged friends. Poppy, my rescue pup, and I had a great time on our expedition around Great Britain, staying everywhere from a Scottish Lodge with sheep and cows for neighbours through to a grand Georgian mansion in beautiful Buxton. My guide features full, honest reviews of the hotels we visited, as well as a tips for safe and happy travels with your dog. If you’re determined to make your next adventure a dog-friendly one grab a cup of tea and be inspired by my guide, which you can read here.
To coincide with the launch of my guide last week, Best Western commissioned a survey of more than 1800 dog lovers, where over half said they plan their holidays around their four legged friend and one in seven said they opt to stay in a dog friendly hotel. Being chastised for having a dog is one of the great fears of most dog owners when on holiday with 40% saying that they avoid pubs and over 30% avoiding hotels because they felt their dog wouldn’t be welcome… Along with TV Vet Mark Evans I launched my guide and spoke about the survey finding to a number of different radio stations. A great experience!
