Dog Friendly Events in the UK – March 2019
It’s that time of year where we’re slowly emerging out of the pits of winter, the sun is creeping through the clouds and your dog isn’t getting AS muddy on their walkies.
It’s also the season where doggie events start picking up and it becomes a lot more enjoyable to get out and about with your pup!
Here’s a list of some of the best dog-friendly events taking place in March.
