A study has recently revealed that Newcastle upon Tyne is one of the most dog-obsessed cities across the UK.

The research by Puppies was conducted by analysing hashtag data of 100,000 residents from 50 of the most populated cities in the country, including London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Leeds, Blackpool, Leicester and more.

While Newcastle took the second spot, sharing approximately 46,238 posts of their furry friends, Manchester was crowned the most ‘dog-obsessed’, with approximately 55,664 posts shared per 100,000 residents.

Another North East city, Sunderland came in 33rd place on the list, with 1,355 posts shared from residents of their dogs.

However, Birkenhead was last on the list, with only 25 dog posts from residents of the city.

It comes as no surprise that Newcastle was incredibly high up on the list of ‘dog-obsessed’ cities, with dog friendly pubs, hotels and more across Newcastle upon Tyne.
