Darcey, my pup and I had a brilliant day last Saturday on our first but not last dog friendly tour of Portrush! We met new friends, learnt interesting facts, had gorgeous Guinness at the Harbour bar, lovely coffee scones and doggie biscuits at Tillys cafe ending up with Lacada beer tasting and delicious lunch at restaurant 55 degrees north. Really good value for money and would thoroughly recommend the tour. Places are limited so well worth booking in advance.

Evie my four year old Yorkshire terrier and I had a brilliant morning at the dog friendly tour in Portrush. It’s a great opportunity to meet other lovely people and their furry friends. Not only do you get to hear a lot of interesting facts and background about the North coast area, you get to sample the food and flavours of the local eateries. Not least the hand crafted Guinness in the Harbour Bar. Jo the host was very knowledgeable and witty. She put us at our ease and time flew by. This tour ticks all the boxes and is a great way to spend Saturday morning.

Had an absolutely brilliant day exploring Belfast with Dog Friendly Tours! Was great visiting so many brilliant dog friendly bars and sampling the local beers and food. The tour was expertly organised with plenty of water and treats arranged in each of the venues. We met so many other dogs and owners and I would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see what Belfast has to offer for dogs and dog lovers!!

Days out in the Autumn…keep up with the exercise!

Well what a change in the weather today from the past few days!  Monday was a glorious day with 19˚ Degrees and blue skies, so after work, Georgie and I headed off for a picnic in the park!  Today however, is more in keeping with the Autumnal season as the rain lashed down this afternoon.   I guess the plants did need watering after all. At this time of year, it is extremely easy to
