Hi, I’m Viki and I run Dog Friendly Cornwall, with the help of my lovely Newfoundland dog Rosie.
Dog Friendly Cornwall is a free website for dog owners who want to enjoy Cornwall with their pets. We feature the very best dog friendly places to stay, to enjoy good food, plus attractions such as gardens and museums which welcome dogs as well as vets, pet sitters and other businesses who serve the dog-owning community.
We’ve been running as a free blog for a year now and over the last few months we’ve had lots of requests from small dog friendly businesses asking us to help them to connect with our readers. We’ve also had lots of requests from dog owners to upgrade the site so we have maps and a bigger list of really dog friendly places to stay, eat, visit and shop, also to produce our guides in print. We’d love to do this and that is what we want to do with your help, to create a site of all dog friendly things in Cornwall for dog lovers and Cornish businesses which is made for dog lovers, by dog lovers.
When I started writing the blog, I was writing it for free as a hobby and that has been fun. But the costs of hosting a directory, and most of all printing are really expensive. I’ve worked hard to fund most of the online work myself, and when there was no money, I taught myself what needed to be done and built what is DogFriendlyCornwall.net today.
But what I’ve found is that most businesses are most interested in working with us if we offer them a printed guide to go along with the online directory and social media posts we provide. In order to make printed guides that accommodation providers who are members will receive a printed guide featuring the best places to eat, beaches, walks, days out and services such as vets, dog groomers and dog sitters etc. in their region of Cornwall. Attractions, places to eat and service providers will feature in the printed guide.
And of course, right now – until 31st March 2017 – membership to the directory with online page, photo gallery, window sticker and printed guide costs just £25 for the year, compared to our usual membership fee of £35 per year.
