Meet our winners

Our chosen Canine Critics will be sniffing out the best dog-friendly accommodation, doggy days out and the most pawsome products that the UK has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a new walkies in your local area or inspiration on where to take your next holiday, our critics are here to lend a helping paw. Click on one of our four-legged friends below to find out more.

We had such a fur-nomenal response to this year's competition – with over 50,000 entrants – that our own top dog at the office decided to reward 20 runners-up too. Check out that Muttley Crew here.
