A DAY care centre for dogs has been named as one of the finalists in a national competition.

Radcliffe-based Stay N Play Doggy Daycase is one of three shortlisted firms in the ‘sitters’ category at this year’s DogFriendly Awards.

The competition recognises and rewards dog-friendly places and pet businesses that go the extra mile for pet pooches and their owners.

Winners of the competition are chosen by public vote.

Owner Luke Millington said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone who has voted for us and given us the opportunity to win this award and be one of the top three finalists in the UK.

“We are extremely proud of our achievements and the standards that we deliver to our customers.”

The award ceremony will take place on October 20 at the ExCeL London conference centre.

Stay N Play, set up in 2016, prides itself on offering a “safe, fun and stimulating environment” for dogs.
