About Dog Friendly NI
Dog Friendly NI’s aim is to create a truly dog friendly society through the promotion of dog friendly businesses and activities across the province, while at the same time providing dog owners with information in relation to dog owner education and training. Owning a dog is so rewarding for both human and dog, and for some another heartbeat in the home. The promotion of physical and mental wellbeing is a key priority for Dog Friendly NI and will be introducing ‘Woof Walks’ for all. As a registered business with DFNI, you will join a network of like minded businesses, with networking opportunities to enable growth and development of local business. Being part of Dog Friendly NI is a stamp of approval for your business, and demonstrates your commitment to providing excellent products and services to dogs and their owners. The new PAW Grading Program® is a recognisable National Award of a venues’ services and facilities and a symbol of quality to dog owners nationwide.

Are you ready to welcome dogs?
Dog Friendly venues are more than just a bowl of water and a seat outside.
Several years ago arriving at a venue to find a steel water bowl with a few dirt flakes floating in it would have been all dog owners could expect. Thankfully, we have moved on and businesses embracing a dog friendly policy have experienced a wealth of benefits.
The recent DFNI networking event was held at the Jeggy Nettle in Belfast on June 4th.
