Matt Fox, CEO and Founder of Dog Friendly Cottages said: "We've seen a huge 415% increase in bookings this spring compared to the same period in 2019, so it's clear that we're truly obsessed with bringing our pooches on holiday this year."

So, to help you get started with planning your pooch perfect staycation, Dog Friendly Cottages has teamed up with top dog psychologist, George Barrett at Dalesman Dog Psychology, to reveal the ‘pawfect’ holiday destination for your pooch according to their breed.

Falling in love with pooches at a young age, George’s father inspired his passion to better understand dog behaviour. Now, George works alongside his wife and family to train thousands of dogs every year.

Whether your breed of pooch is prone to longer or shorter walks, having a splash around in water, or socialising with other furry friends, George recommends where you should take your top dog.

He said: “Whilst the below is based on the general behaviours of certain breeds, it’s important to remember all breeds are individuals and as such will vary in temperament.

"Exercise requirements will vary due to age and fitness, and it’s important to remember taking pets to unfamiliar places can alter behaviour due to stress.

"All dogs need to be under control and not let off a lead if they are a danger to themselves, other dogs, livestock or people. Always make sure your pet is microchipped and has a collar and disc on it, with your current mobile number, name and address.”
