Reader reviews:
'The perfect stocking filler for fans of our four-legged friends and great British pubs alike' - Richard Attwood

'Bought one copy for myself and now I have come back another three times to buy it as presents for other people.' - Chris Moon

'A perfect Christmas present!'

'Glorious photos and some very funny commentary'

'What an awesome collection of pub dogs'

'Beautiful pictures of a range of public house pooches the length and breadth of Britain' - Carl Morris

'A beautifully crafted book giving a perfect insight into British culture' - Jill Monum

'Great book, well thought out and beautifully produced'

This beautifully photographed collection tells the stories of the much-loved dogs, of all kinds, that live in pubs all over Great Britain, not least the Pub Dog Capital of Britain, Whitstable.

Locals love their pub dogs and landlords often say that people come in as much for the dog as for anything else. Dogs make a pub feel like home for regulars.

Fleckney and Lucas chronicle the incredible variety of dogs that actually live in, rather than simply visit, Britain's pubs. They showcase the dogs with their beautiful photographic portraits and tell their stories, too. In feel, this is very much a 'family album' of British pub dogs.

About the Author

Paul Fleckney (Author)
PAUL FLECKNEY is a journalist. He is an avid pub-goer and a life-long dog lover who's never owned a dog, and therefore gets a shameless vicarious pleasure from the Pub Dogs project.

Abbie Lucas (Author)
ABBIE LUCAS is a London-based film-maker and photographer. Her involvement with pubs began earlier than most, having grown up in two that were owned and operated by her parents on the South Island of New Zealand. She loves dogs too, even when they insist on lying on her while she tries to snap their portrait.
