Five Things your Dog Loves about Merchant House

Here at Merchant House, we love to welcome a hound to our dog friendly hotel in our great little city of Truro, so we’re here to tell you five things your dog will love about us!

1) The Treat Jar…

On top of the bar where there’s tasty cake made fresh every day by our very own Chef Dave, there’s a colourful jar of crunchy biscuits just waiting to be tested by a bona fide treat taster! We’ve also got another jar full of chews to keep Fido’s teeth in great shape! Enjoy a chunky slice of Chef Dave’s cake curled up in the lounge by a roaring log burner, while your hound enjoys some treats and naps in the warmth.

2) The Dog Wash

We’ve recently installed our very own Dog Wash, which includes a warm shower, doggy shampoo, and fluffy towels ready to dry your furry friend! Take a walk on the beach or a stroll through the woods and let Fido get as muddy as he’d like before returning to Merchant House to get clean! Why not sit in the lounge in front of the toasty log burner to warm up afterwards too?

3) The Doggy Welcome Pack

Our Merchant House team know how important it is to have all the information you need right in front of you when you arrive somewhere new. So we’ve provided a welcome pack designed for you and your hound detailing all the best dog friendly places to visit in Truro and surrounding areas! We’ve even included a Bonio biscuit and some doggy bags too!

4) Murphy

Merchant House hotel also has it’s own hound, Murphy! Murphy’s a friendly bundle of fluff (depending on when he’s had his last haircut!) and he loves to shake paws with new dogs!

5) Access to the Great Cornish Outdoors

One thing Cornish dogs benefit from is plenty of fresh adventures in one of the most beautiful counties in the country!

Murphy tired

You’ll be able to take your hound with you from coastline to coastline or just explore our cobbled city of Truro at your leisure.

If you’ve visited Merchant House with your hound, we’d love to see a photo! Why not head over to our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page and show us your pup enjoying his holiday!
