Fans of pooches and pubs alike, our pack of expert judges will select the UK’s favourite dog-friendly pub from a shortlist of 12 regional winners.
Lisa Hens is a Senior Scientific Officer at the RSPCA, specialising in dog welfare.
As an animal lover she feels incredibly lucky to have been working for the charity for over 10 years. Lisa’s job is very varied, but one of her favourite parts is being able to help owners improve their dog’s welfare by providing advice and guidance on what dogs need to be happy and healthy.
Being able to find dog friendly destinations helps owners plan their activities so that they, and their dogs can have the best time possible, so Lisa is looking forward to seeing how the pubs this year think about the needs of their doggy customers.
