Sarah Higgs, sales manager at the Parkway Hotel & Spa said: “We are hugely passionate about promoting our hotel as dog friendly. Being a family-owned and operated property, we truly feel that dogs are part of our family. PetsPyjamas’ ‘We’re Barking Britain’ is a great campaign and will encourage dog owners to take advantage of that great dog-friendly staycation’.
Karen Hanton, PetsPyjamas Co-Founder and CEO, said: “The hospitality industry has been particularly hard hit in recent months, and with summer abroad lacking its usual appeal, there’s never been a better time to discover all the UK has to offer. Through our ‘We’re Barking Britain’ campaign, we hope to rally up the nation’s dog owners to help get the country back on its four feet and reward our dogs for their emotional support during the lockdown with new adventures with their favourite human!”
PetsPyjamas has been running since 2014 and offers pet-friendly getaways at more than 10,000 hotels, cottages, country houses and B&Bs in the UK and abroad.
