To find the most dog-friendly city in the UK, a seed list was taken using a YouGov poll of the most popular cities in the UK. We looked at the top 31 cities on this list, removing Poole as it is a town.
We then collected data from Tripadvisor, SpareRoom and AllTrails.
We looked at the number of hotels/rooms/bars/restaurants/walks overall, and the number of hotels/rooms/bars/restaurants/walks which allowed dogs, to work out the percentage of dog-friendly places in each category.
We then worked out an average percentage of dog-friendly places for each city, and used this to rank the top 30 most dog-friendly cities in the UK.
