UK’s ‘Most Dog Friendly Town’ Launches Doggy Creche for Local Events

Malton, known as Yorkshire’s Food Capital and “The UK’s Most Dog Friendly Town” is launching a ‘Doggy Crèche’ in February.

The new doggy-haven is being introduced to ensure a stress-free experience for visitors and to provide a safe-haven away from the crowds for pooches.

Visitors at the Doggy Crèche will be looked after by volunteers from Ryedale Dog Rescue, whilst Burgess Petcare will be supplying food so that pampered pups can enjoy a tasty lunch, free of charge. Experienced dog trainer and behaviourist Charlie Clive will also be on hand to give help and advice.

In the case of emergencies, Station House Veterinary Practice will be providing an on-call service, meaning that visitors to the town can enjoy their delicious foodie day out knowing that their beloved four-legged friends are experiencing the same bliss.

Open for visitors from 9:30am, the Crèche will feature at a range of exciting events on the town calendar this year, including: Monthly Food Markets (9th February, 9th March, 12th October and 9th November), the Food Lovers Festival (25th & 26th May), the Harvest Food Festival (7th & 8th September) and the Christmas Market (7th & 8th December).

Visit Malton Director Tom Naylor Leyland said: “We are thrilled to be introducing the Doggy Crèche to our upcoming events this year and further developing the Malton experience as a fun, enjoyable day out to all visitors, including pooches – Malton is ‘The UK’s Most Dog Friendly Town’ after all!”

Malton was awarded the title of “The UK’s Most Dog Friendly Town” in October 2018, after competing against over 1900 dog-friendly places around the UK and winning the annual Dog Friendly Awards in association with the Kennel Club.
