Surveys differ in their reports of dog owners visiting The Lake District but even the most conservative estimates shows 30% + will bring a dog. We are happy to accept dogs (sometimes they’re even better behaved than their human counterparts) but we don’t allow them to be left alone in cottages. Being in a strange environment can cause a dog to worry & start chewing/spraying or become nervously aggressive. This does mean if you bring your dog you must be prepared to have it with you at all times.

Ambleside Paws Outdoors is a new service for Ambleside & other villages in the area aiming to help take some of the workload away from pet ownership. Kim Chick will (for a modest fee) come & take your dog(s) out for a walk,look after them for a whole day or even overnight. This can allow you a little freedom whilst ensuring your best friend is getting the care & attention that he/she needs. Kim is a keen walker with a dog of her own so she knows plenty of great routes to take your pet out for a walk, she can arrange pickup & returns to you as well. You never know you may go home with your canine pal having done more miles than you!
