Pembrokeshire Tourism and Burns Pet Nutrition Team Up to Launch the County’s First Dog Friendly Tourism Awards

Environmental impact is a vital consideration for tourism providers in the county and Pembrokeshire Tourism together with the team at Burns Pet Nutrition are working with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority to stress the importance of visitors helping to keep Pembrokeshire dog friendly by following the Countryside Code, respecting other people and their animals and protecting the natural environment to make sure everyone can enjoy our great outdoors.

The team of independent shortlisting judges have completed the list of finalists for the Dog Friendly Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards. From next week a new team of judges including special Burns By Your Side Reading Dogs will visit the finalists.
