Pawsome Canines

December 10, 2020

The position is held by local dog lover and antiques aficionada Angela Egan who played a leading role in securing the official dog friendly accolade.

Now guests coming to stay at the venue can call her up and pre-book a package of activities and services for their much-loved family pets.

Not only can their tail wagging companions have training and grooming sessions, plus a ‘pawdicure,’ but also a new bespoke outfit made for them and a photoshoot in the hotel grounds. A Learn to Cater for Your Dog cookery lesson is also on offer, specially prepared bespoke raw meals can also be delivered to The Talbot.

Angela, who has brought together local training, grooming and other suppliers to create the service, said: “We can also offer advice on dog friendly cafes, bars and restaurants.

“It’s really great that The Coaching Inn Group, which runs The Talbot, has so whole heartedly embraced the town’s dog friendly ethos.”

The Coaching Inn Group is also helping Miss Mollies Rescue by featuring a homeless dog on its website every month and offering a complimentary meal for two to anyone who was able to give the animal a good home.
