'Paws in the Vale' is a dog friendly scheme based in the rural Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales.

Paws in The Vale

We are helping shops, eateries and accommodation in the rural Vale to be dog friendly during this period and to measure the impact.

The rural Vale of Glamorgan is a wonderful place for a holiday, weekend break or day trip with your faithful friend. With our spectacular Glamorgan Heritage Coast, beautiful beaches and wooded valleys and varied landscape you and your dog will have great days out for a walk, sniff and explore! Download our dog friendly welcome leaflet for our tips on enjoying the Vale of Glamorgan with your dog.

As well as enjoying fabulous walkies, your dog will also enjoy great dog friendly shops, places to visit, and places to eat and drinkIf you need a great place to stay, check out the dog friendly accommodation!  You will find a range of choice from a quaint B&B to a caravan park and for the perfectly pampered pooch, there are a great range of services available locally to make sure your pet has the best time in the Vale.

Our network of Vale Trails are perfect for keeping your doggies entertained. Of our ten trails we have hand picked some that are ideal for our four legged friends.
