Home Alone Holiday inspires new Dog-Friendly Accommodation Website

Home Alone Holiday inspires new Dog-Friendly Accommodation Website

A new online directory of dog-friendly holiday accommodation has been launched by a young woman after a home alone holiday nightmare!

21 year-old Tanya Powell was forced to stay at home dog-sitting whilst the rest of her family enjoyed a sunshine break in Portugal - all because they couldn't find UK accommodation which allowed pets.

Tanya said, "We'd had a bad previous experience with kennels and just wanted to enjoy a family holiday where we could take the dogs, but no matter how hard we looked we couldn't find any where. It wouldn't have been fair for the whole family to miss out, so I volunteered to stay at home and look after the dogs. The time alone gave me plenty of thinking space!

"I vowed never to end up stuck at home again and decided to research as much information as possible. Better still, it gave me the idea to share the research with others who may find themselves in the same position - and that's how holidoggys was born!"

The holidoggys website features an online database already on target to feature more than 1000 different types of UK holiday accommodation including self catering cottages, guest houses and hotels.

Tanya's celebrating the launch of the website with a limited number of free listings offer for all dog-friendly accommodation providers. More information about Holidoggys is available by visiting
