Holiday Hounds

Does your dog have the best holiday picture?

The search is on to find the best picture of a dog on holiday!

New research¹ from Best Western Great Britain, conducted in line with National Dog Day on the 26th August, has found that one in seven (14%) UK dog owners would rather go on holiday with their dog than their other half.

With Brits clearly so keen to travel with their dogs, Best Western Great Britain has launched its search for the best holiday pictures of dogs across the country! Whether it’s a Boxer on a beach or a Spaniel in the sun, submit your entry below and you could win a night’s stay with Best Western Great Britain!

Rob Paterson, CEO at Best Western Great Britain, said: “Britain is a nation of dog lovers, so it’s not surprising to hear that so many are keen to bring their four-legged friends away with them.  

“We have over 100 dog-friendly hotels across the country, as we appreciate how important it is for people to be able to bring their dog away with them. 

“Our new competition is looking for the very best photos of dogs enjoying their time away. We can’t wait to see the entries!”
