Macdonald Hotels & Resorts National Dog Campaign

8 November 2022

With many of our dog friendly hotels and self-catering resorts across the UK representing the perfect playground for pups and pooches of all shapes and sizes, we have launched our first ever 'Top of the Pups' campaign!

After pawing through hundreds of fantastic submissions of some of Britain's most photogenic four-legged friends for the chance to become the official face of Macdonald Hotels & Resorts during upcoming online and press promotions of our dog-friendly destinations - we've narrowed the list down to seven regional finalists.

We're now calling on you to choose your favourite pup pose via the poll located further down the page - with voting open until midnight on Monday, 5th December 2022 and a winner declared on our social media pages by Friday, 9th December

  • Glasgow and the West
  • Edinburgh and the East
  • The North of Scotland
  • North West England
