Pets win prizes – dog friendly holiday competition

Well naturally, it will be you winning the prize (potentially). But it’s one your pooch can enjoy too.

It’s National Pet Month (1 April – 2 May) and if there’s a commitment we’re keen to adhere to, it’s providing as many pet friendly holiday homes as possible. And getting as many of you and your pooches booked in before they’re all gone!

So to get to know you and your pooch a little better we thought we’d get a competition going. Oh yes, it’s competition time!


Get involved

It couldn’t be simpler: we want photos of your adorable dogs. And it’s all happening on our social media channels.

  • Visit any of our social media channels and post away – you only need to post on one of the channels correctly to be entered into the prize draw, but post on all three if your pooch is that cute!
  • On Facebook: like the page, then post a photograph of your dog including their name, breed and the hashtags #petswinprizes and #nationalpetmonth
  • On Twitter: start following us, tweet us (@love_cottages) a photo of your dog, their name, breed and #petswinprizes #nationalpetmonth
  • On Instagram: start following us, tag us (@lovecottages) a photo of your dog, their name, breed and #petswinprizes #nationalpetmonth

Here are a couple of examples posted to our Facebook and Instagram pages:

What are you waiting for?

Ok, so maybe your pooch won’t comply right now, but surely you have a cute photo in your library somewhere… We don’t need preened doggies, we just want adorable ones. This ain’t Crufts!

Looking forward to seeing your photos.

You can keep up with the responsible pet owner conversation via #nationalpetmonth and @NatPetMonthUK on Twitter.
