A Calderdale pub can now claim to be the most dog friendly in Yorkshire.

Now in their third year, Europe’s leading online dog sitting platform, DogBuddy.com, introduced the Dog-friendly Pub Awards to recognise deserving pubs across the UK that truly embrace ‘paw power’ and welcome not just two, but four legged customers as well.

The Last Post in Ripponden fought off fierce competiton from a number of dog-friendly watering holes across Yorkshire, but held on to the top spot after accumulating the most votes.

Andy Clay, manager of The Last Post was delighted with the news, “I’m absolutely over the moon. I was brought up with dogs and they always made home feel like home. I wanted to bring the same feeling to my pub - a nice homely feeling with dogs been petted and lying in front of the fire.”

Encouraging hound-lovers and pup parents up and down the UK to show some well-deserved appreciation of existing dog-friendly establishments, the Dog-friendly Pub Awards also promote dog-friendly values across pubs nationwide, inspiring UK dog owners to discover and visit their local.
