Derbyshire is popular with dog owners.

The findings came from booking data compiled by holiday provider Cottages.com which put Yorkshire at the top of the league and prompted the launch of Dog Friendly Holiday Finder , to give you an idea of where your pooch would like to go on holiday. Dog behaviour expert Sharon Bolt offers these six tips for preparing to take your four-legged friend away this summer:

Any dog in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address (including postcode) of the owner engraved or written on it or engraved on a tag.
Make sure your dog is microchipped as it is the law.
Bring along items that are familiar to your pet, such as dog bed, blanket and toys, to make them feel at home.
Remember to have the basics: food, water, bowl, treats, poop bags, collar, lead and towels ( if you go somwehere muddy).
Check that your pet insurance is up to date.
Teach your dog to 'come' to your command before you leave home and when they respond to your call give them a yummy treat.
