The inspector giving accommodation paws for thought

Shady verandahs, interesting smells and food resembling a dog’s breakfast will top the list of requirements for Britain’s newest accommodation reviewer.

Travel website Canine Cottages is advertising for the role of a discerning four-legged critic to check out its 1,500 dog-friendly cottages around the UK.

It sounds like a ruff deal, but the perks include a complimentary week’s holiday and three weekends at cottages across England, Scotland and Wales, plus a salary of doggy treats and snacks.

The successful candidate doesn’t need any qualifications other than a penchant for travel and adventure, and a positive can-do attitude when it comes to long walks.

Its owner, however, will need to be social media savvy and possess writing and posting skills strong enough to ensure that all trips are well documented.

Canine Cottages spokesman Jamie Morris said: “Our ethos revolves around ensuring that all members of the family have a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday with their loved ones, whether they have two legs or four.

“It is therefore vital to us that each one of our holiday cottages has everything that man’s best friend would possibly need, and who better to test out a range of our offerings than a pet pooch?”

All candidates must be at least six months old and fit and healthy enough to handle long car journeys and walks across a variety of beach, hill and forest terrains.

They are expected to provide feedback to their owners for swift communication with Canine Cottages HQ.

 All those shaggy dog stories will be gratefully received, says Jamie, and invaluable in “helping future dog-owning customers make the right decision when it comes to their holidays”.
