August - The Last Days of Summer
Pawesome things to do Before Summers Out!
With less than two weeks to go before the schools go back, we will soon be feeling that summer is over, (has it begun yet we hear you cry?). UK wide, and ranging from the fun to the downright unusual, we have sourced some pawesome days out and activities for you, family, friends and of course, your dogs to enjoy. So get reading and enjoy these last few precious days of summer.

Fun Dog Show and Farm Walk, Quidenham, Norfolk
A good old-fashioned Dog Show is something we all love, and this sounds mutt-tastic. Register by 10.30am on Sunday 10 September and enjoy the Gun Dog Scurry, the Have-a-Go Agility class, or just enjoy a walk around the farm.

The West Somerset Railway, Minehead, Somerset
Choo Chooo and Woof Woof! Everyone aboard this doggy friendly steam train, with its beautiful views and surrounding countryside. For just £2.00 per dog you can explore the rolling Quantock hills.
Annandale Distillery, Annan, Dumfriesshire, Scotland
This traditional distillery was founded in 1836, closed for a while, and then was re-founded in 2014. It's fully dog-friendly, and you can take your constant companion in the restaurant area as well for a post-tour snack and tipple.
Action Petz, Bridgend, nr Cardiff, South Wales
‘A hub for all things dog’ is a good start we think! Come rain or shine this indoor play park has jumps, toys and tunnels to keep your four-legged friends having fun. Boasting a comfy café and outdoor paddling pools, your pooch will be positively pawing to get to Action Petz.
Be sure to make the most of these last days of summer.
Whatever it is you decide to do with your four legged bestie be sure to have your Ruff and Tumble at the ready!
