Dog owners can now get £1,000 to go on UK holidays with their pooches
Canine Cottages is looking for fun-loving dogs and their owners to test out a variety of UK holiday cottages for them – and you’ll get £1,000 to spend on the holiday.
The Mirror reports that dog owners could now bag £1,000 to spend on a staycation with their beloved pooches, thanks to a new opportunity from Canine Cottages.
The holiday rentals platform has opened applications for ‘Canine Critics’, and successful applications will be given £1,000 to spend on a holiday cottage stay in the UK, as well as receiving extra perks such as doggy treats and some exclusive discounts.
All you’ll have to do in return is review how pet-friendly your holiday was, from the cottage itself to the region where you stayed.
The coveted roles mean you’ll be the company’s “paws on the ground” which includes sharing photos for the brand’s social media channels and website.
Think you and your dog deserve a free holiday? To apply, all you need to do is head to the online job application and upload your favourite photo of your dog, which you think shows off their personality. There’s also a short form to fill out.
The competition is open to UK residents only (you can see the full T&Cs on the job application), with 10 spots up for grabs.
Canine Cottages opens the Canine Critics roles every year – and last year, there were over 60,000 applicants.
The owner of Ronnie, one of the winning dogs in 2020, said of the experience: “We’ve loved being a part of the Canine Critics team.
Such beautiful homes in beautiful places – the hardest part is picking one out of the amazing selection!
“We love visiting new places and exploring hidden gems so we can’t wait to share our experiences with other adventure-seeking dog owners.
The team are so helpful and their customer service is second to none. Being a Canine Critic is a fantastic experience and will leave us with memories to cherish forever.”
Don’t be disheartened if you apply but you’re not successful. The good news is that there are still plenty of ways to bag cheap pet-friendly holidays.
For example, Canine Cottages has late deals from £266, which includes coastal cottages if your dog is a fan of the beach.
