Another day, another pet-friendly adventure! Our guru Rigby has very busy, pounding the streets, hills and valleys, pawing his seal of approval to only those pet-friendly venues that truly pass muster – which in Rigby’s case is high praise indeed. And now, not only is he off exploring so you can all visit the best pet-friendly destinations in the UK, he has recruited one of his trusted four-pawed pals to join the ranks – none other than Marcel le Corgi!
With copious meetings undertaken between Rigby and Marcel – noses at the ready, comparing sniffs on their favourite pawstops – we’re delighted that Marcel and his maman, Aurélie, will be off sampling some sumptuous dog-friendly destinations for us over the coming months. Watch out for their Rigby Review paw-ings, exclusively on All Four Paws.
The first dog to be invited to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (a pet-friendly destination of the future? we can but hope!), Marcel’s pioneering paws are known for his love of travel, supreme fluffiness, discerning tastes and witty repartee. Marcel is one globe-trotting pooch. Taking after his paw-parents, who are pet-friendly pioneers very much after our own heart, just like Rigby, Marcel loves to be out and about. Right from the start, Marcel’s maman was keen to make sure Marcel was comfortable exploring with them; “When Marcel joined our home, we realised that being able to take him with us was a lot less stressful for us all, so we made sure he was well-socialised (he did visit his first dog-friendly pub within a week of being with us!), and by age one he had his own pet passport and had visited 4 countries. Having him did not stop us from travelling; it made us do it differently, seeking out places that not only allow, but also welcome dogs. Thanks to this approach, we’ve discovered many beautiful regions of the UK we’d probably never have thought of without him, and we’ve had some amazing and fun experiences we love to share. This is why we are very excited to start guest starring on Rigby Reviews for All Four Paws, showing le best of dog-friendly GB.”
Welcome aboard, Monsieur Marcel!
To hear more about Marcel and his wonderful bond with his maman, Aurélie, stay tuned – we’ll be featuring their story very soon!
