The Kennel Club
campaign to break down barriers for dog owners
Ever tried to take your dog for a walk to pick up some essentials from
the shops, only to be faced by the problem of not being allowed to take
Restrictions for dog owners on where they can take their dog seem to be
an ever increasing daily dilemma, which is why the Kennel Club launched
its ‘OPEN FOR DOGS’ sticker campaign, to encourage more businesses to
An attractively designed sticker has been
created for all places that
are open to dogs.
Places which display this campaign sticker ‘Open for Dogs’ and allow
dogs, will benefit from encouraging more visitors and their dogs, with
the Kennel Club connection. Contrary to popular belief, it is by no
means illegal to take dogs into restaurants and pubs etc.
These places will also benefit from being listed on the Kennel Club
website on the Open
For Dogs page – providing a centralised and useful service for all
those who want to go about their daily lives with their dogs alongside.
The Kennel Club wants to make
life easier for millions of dog owners, who would benefit if more
allowed dogs - and so would the businesses!
From cafes, restaurants, libraries and shops to taxis, road recovery
companies, offices and more. These are places we all go to, and need to
go to, and why should dogs not be allowed to accompany us, as well
behaved dog citizens?
The stickers were first available at the campaign launch at Discover
Dogs, November 10th and 11th at Earls Court 2, London www.discover-dogs.org.uk
After the launch, these stickers are now freely available from the
Kennel Club press office. To request a dog sticker, and to support the
‘Open for Dogs’ campaign, get in touch with the KC press office, so dog
ownership in daily life can become the norm.
Email your request to email@example.com
And if you have visited somewhere who welcomed your dog, then let us
know and we can send a sticker directly to them. Help the UK to be more
‘Open for Dogs’ with the Kennel Club.
