We joined forces with Pets as Therapy to celebrate what they do and encourage people to make the most of beaches across the north of England. From October beaches are once again open to dogs, giving you a great excuse to hop on the train and visit some of the North's beautiful coastlines.

Dogs are always welcome on our services and it was great to be able to host the Pets as Therapy (PAT) pooches at our launch in Blackpool. The dogs – and their owners – had a great time and enjoyed a well-deserved treat after bringing comfort to so many people.

In October, we took to the promenade at Blackpool and gave local dog owners the VIP treatment too. Doggie bags, featuring treats and toys, were on offer as well as the chance to have professional pet photo portraits.

In the shadow of the famous tower, countless canines were given a warm welcome and this is extended to all dog owners who want to explore the North’s sandy beaches and rugged coastline. POW_191022_7125.jpg Dogs on the beach - 1Dogs on the beach - 3
