Hi Canterbury,

What's your opinion on dog-friendly businesses?

The number of dog friendly businesses in the Canterbury region are on the rise with over 30 cafes allowing dog owners to dine with their canines.

The decision is the business owner’s rather than council's, and the only requirement is dogs must be at least three metres away from the kitchen.

You can find the full list of dog-friendly businesses by clicking 'Read more'.

Share your thoughts (and other businesses we haven't listed) below and please write NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Northern Outlook.

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
