Discover Hambleton for dogs

As a nation we love our dogs. In 20/21 the number of estimated dogs kept as pets in the UK rose from 9 million in 19/20 to 12.5 million in 20/21 (source).

This has been recognised and now more places have become dog friendly, recognising this trend in consumer choice and behaviour. Businesses, towns and cities are now competing to be more welcoming to attract visitors and their dogs.

Across many of the cafés, businesses, shops and restaurants in Hambleton our furry four-legged friends are very welcome. However, in Northallerton they have put together a list of all the shops, cafés and businesses that welcome dogs.
