What is The Canine Directory?

We are a leading online directory that promotes all things dog-friendly.

As a team of dog lovers we aim to promote enrichment for dogs and their owners.  We do this by listing thousands of dog-friendly businesses across the UK.

How does it work?

All the dog-friendly businesses on our site can be searched and located based on their category and geographic location.  This makes it really easy for you to find what you’re looking for in your area.  

You can use the website to find businesses near to your home address, or if you are away for the day or on holiday The Canine Directory is the perfect travel companion too. 

We’re completely mobile friendly so you don’t need to use valuable mobile phone space downloading an app – meaning you have more room for selfies with your pup!
