Holiday let site Snaptrip is looking for two dogs to travel around the UK with their owners as “furrfluencers.”

The pooches will have to visit 10 holiday rentals in 12 months, leaving “honest” 500-word reviews, judging at least one of the following criteria:

  • dog enjoyment
  • dog practicality
  • access to local walks and dog-friendly establishments like pubs and garden space

Owners will have to take stylish photos of their canine companions enjoying themselves at each property.  

And here’s the kicker: Snaptrip says it will pay the ‘furrfluencers’ £300 per property they visit, on top of the free stay, and pay for all travel expenses.

The range of rentals they’ll need to explore include seaside cottages, forest log cabins and countryside manor houses, you’d be barking not to apply.

In the interest of fairness the firm is looking for one younger and one older dog. Other criteria to be eligible include:

  • Must be comfortable travelling
  • Must be either 6 months to 3 years old or 4 years to 10 years old
  • Must be in good health
  • Must be comfortable in front of the camera and photogenic
  • Must have an eye for detail and impeccable taste

Matt Fox, chief executive and co-founder of Snaptrip.com, says, “We have over 30,000 dog-friendly cottages, and we thought who better to review these places than the animals who are going to be enjoying them!

“Many dog-owners pick accommodation based on whether they think it’s suitable for their pet, so we think a potential Furrfluencer review system will be really helpful to our customers.

“Whether they want a chilled countryside retreat for their aging labrador, or an active fun-packed break for their bouncy cockapoo, Snaptrip.com customers will be able to read an actual dog’s experience of a holiday rental to decide whether it’s the perfect place for them and their pet.”

There’s no deadline for submissions, the firm says it depends on how many it receives.
