Ernie and Jenny on the sea wall near Christchurch, Dorset

Hi, I’m Ernie and I’m a five-year-old Westie from Southend-on-Sea, Essex. I love exploring new places with my family (Mum, Dad and my one-year-old brother Stan) so thought it would be fun to share my discoveries with the world. I’ve done all the hard work – going on nice holidays, eating lots of treats and taking plenty of long walks – but Mum has done all the writing.

For a bit more about her, she’s a national newspaper journalist turned roving repawter who has worked for the likes of The Sun, The Times, The Daily Express, The Telegraph, The Mirror and the BBC, to name but a few. Together, we enjoy sniffing out the UK’s best dog-friendly accommodation and love trying new places, whether they are five-star hotels or cool campsites.

Since Mum and I started our blog in October 2017, we have worked with lots of different companies such as Milsoms, Red Carnation Hotels, Away Resorts, Safestay, Haven, Fuller’s and the Upham Pub Company.

In December 2020, Stan – a Romanian rescue dog – joined our family just in time for Christmas. He’s my little apprentice. You can find us both on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so give us a follow! I hope you enjoy reading all about our adventures 🙂
