Taking the dog for a walk is one of life’s greatest treasures. So here, on The Outdoor Guide (TOG), in association with the Dogs Die In Hot Cars campaign group (which includes Battersea, Dogs Trust, National Animal Welfare Trust, PDSA, RSPCA and Wood Green amongst others) we have collated some of our favourite dog friendly walks, places to stay, eat and visit in all corners of Great Britain.

Together we want to help empower dog owners by doing the right thing by their dog over the summer months and beyond, with not only hints and tips on how to keep their dogs cool, but directing owners towards places they can go to and stay at where dogs are welcome. All of which you will find on this page!
