Dog Furiendly has unveiled a new interactive website for dog owners across the UK. The free-to-use website features a sophisticated search engine to find dog friendly places and dog-related events.
The website has been re-designed with feedback from the community. Much like TripAdvisor, Dog Furiendly allows dog owners to save their favourite places and leave reviews.
The community aims to change the way dog owners research and plan their adventures by combining search and social together. Dog owners can sign up for their own profile, follow friends, send messages and take part in the community’s regular dog walks and dog friendly events.
Founder of Dog Furiendly, Adele Pember started the website after struggling to find places to take her Chihuahua, Charlie, who suffers with separation anxiety.
According to research carried out by Channel Four’s Dogs: Their Secret Lives, 85% of the dogs studied showed signs of not coping when left alone.
Adele told HAREFIELD RADIO: “There are more than seven million dogs across the UK, who like Charlie who find being without their owner incredibly difficult. Many dog owners find it difficult to make recreational plans outside of work with the fear of leaving the dog.
The life of a dog is short, so being able to use a platform such as Dog Furiendly to include your dog in your plans is so special, and gives you more memories to cherish.”
Since launching Dog Furiendly in 2018, we’ve helped so many people to find new places, our community is growing every day!”
An estimated number of 9 million dog owners across the UK will benefit from this new online platform.
Dog friendly hospitality and leisure businesses are invited to add their business or events to the website for free.
Since launching in January 2018, the award-winning website has already been successful in helping over 100,000 British dog owners to find new places.
The new website www.dogfuriendly.com is live across the UK from today (Friday 25th October).
