A SCHEME to identify dog friendly businesses in Colwyn Bay has been launched.

The Green Paw Print project will highlight all the shops, pubs, restaurants and other premises in the area that welcome dogs.

Danny Borrill, who runs Alternadogs grooming salon on Greenfield Road, with his wife Kat, is leading the scheme, which has also won the backing for business enterprise Colwyn BID.

Under Green Paw Print project businesses will sport a sticker on their door or window for visitors to see, and will also be listed on the Alternadogs website so dog owners can plan their visit in advance.

Anna Openshaw, project manager at Colwyn BID, said: “I think Danny’s proposed scheme is a really good idea that would be of benefit to local businesses.

“The idea is simple but effective and if it can help drive more visitors and particularly dog owners to the area and get them spending money then that can only be a positive thing.

“We will provide Danny with all the support he needs to get the project off the ground.”
