Welcome to Paws On The Door

How does it work?

Launched in September 2018, Paws on the Door is all about connecting dog owners and  businesses that welcome dogs. Whether you are looking for a dog friendly hotel, pub, cafe, dry-cleaner or bank, our aim is for you to find it here easily. 

This is the very beginning of our journey, so please bear with us as we expand our database and our geographic spread. If you would like to recommend any dog friendly places or you are a dog friendly business, we would love to hear from you. 

'Search' is simple. Use the ‘Search’ option on the top to locate places you can take your dog. To make your experience easier, we have divided them into 4 categories and colour coded them on the map: Eating & Drinking- Blue; Sleeping- Red; Stores- Yellow and Services- Green. You can search by postcode / town or by categories.

About us

Who we are

We are Carolyn and Zsuzsa, two great friends who want to make the most of our time with our beloved dogs, Harry and Sirus.

What we do

Together we have created 'Paws on the Door', an online community for dog owners and dog friendly businesses. 'Paws on the Door' allows fellow pooch lovers to search for dog friendly shops and services. It also provides our users with information about registered dog friendly places and exclusive offers.

Why we do it

We have noticed that we never know for sure where we can go with our dogs, whether it is a pub, cafe, shop or hairdressers. As a result, we either end up asking numerous high street businesses if they are dog friendly or abandon the whole idea.
With 8.5m dogs in the UK, we think dog friendly places need an easy way to let customers know that their four legged friends are welcome. To highlight dog friendly places, we have created a 'Paws' sticker that can be displayed on the door or window.
