Dog Friendly Richmond, North Yorkshire

Richmond in North Yorkshire is a lovely historic town. Cobbled Streets, Castle and the Water Falls attract many tourists each year.  Its a holiday destination that many people want to visit including those who want to bring their four legged friends too. Plenty of walks and places to see.  For some, going on holiday without them is just not an option, they are part of experience and it just wouldn't be the same without them. Also some holiday cottages do not allow dogs to be left alone in the property for long periods of time, so its important to know when you do go on holiday, that mans best friend can go with you, when you want to pop out for a bite to eat.

When choosing your dog friendly accommodation, check with the owners if possible, to see how Dog friendly they are.  Do they allow dogs in all areas of the property, are they allowed on the furniture and if so, do they want you to take blankets or throws.  It may be that they provide them for you, its always best to check and lets face it, less packing for you if they do. 

Dogs love a run about so space is important, depending on the size of your pet.  Always check if the property has a garden, does it have high secure fencing, are there any areas where some dogs potentially could escape especially if they are small.  Whilst on your holiday you need peace of mind, and be able to relax knowing that your pet is safe.

Walking your dog is part of your vacation, so check that the area that you are staying has exactly what you need. Do you have a dog that just loves water and need to be near beaches or lakes, or do you have a dog that wants space so your walks need to be quiet away from others .  Are walks from the door essential or are you happy to jump in the car and explore.  Dog walking fields are very popular now and many can get booked up weeks ahead.  If you use them, send the owner an email and see if they have any near your accommodation or could they suggest any for you to contact and book ahead. Richmond has a couple in the area Paddocks for Paws in Richmond and Sammy's Field near Scotch Corner. If you venture just over the border into County Durham, about 20 minutes away from Moulton, Richmond there is Adventure Paws Dog Walking Field.  All are great and well looked after by the owners.

Most owners are more than happy for you to ask any questions in relation to your dog and raise any concerns before you make a booking.  Its important that you are happy and ready to enjoy your holiday from the outset. 

Packing for the family holiday is one thing, but remember your four legged friend has his favourites toys, blankets and treats.  It may be worth taking a Kong with you or snuffle mat.  Put some of their favourite treats inside and place them down on their mat/blanket.  Once you have their attention, they will relax in their new surroundings.

Here are some dog friendly cafe's, tearooms, pubs and venues that you will be most welcome to go with your dog in the Richmond are
