They are man's best friend and a fine addition to many a pub too. Here are 9 of our favourite pub dogs - but feel free to get in touch if you feel we've missed some out...
1 Spencer, The Royal Pier, Aberystwyth
You'll find this cool dude catching his rays at multi-site venue The Royal Pier. The two-year-old British Bulldog belongs to former BII Licensee Lee Price, who is clearly winning when it comes to pets too.
2 Crunchy, The Chandos Arms, Colindale, London
"Nobody is going anywhere near that pint until my owner is back, right!" OK, OK we are not going to argue with regular customer Crunchy.
3 Kia and Hannah, White Hart, Pennington
According to owner Laura Pollard this pair of Siberian Huskies have perfected their "feed me, cute faces." Looks like they've perfected finding a good spot for a snooze too.
Max, The Windmill, Clapham
Bernese Mountain Dog Max is a "boutique dog fit for a boutique hotel" according to the team at the Young's venue. He also likes a spot of table dancing.
Charlie, The Cellar House, Norwich
Charlie is one of that growing breed of tech-savvy dogs that has his own Twitter and Facebook accounts (@pubdogcharlie). That said he is also a retriever who refuses to fetch a stick. Dogs these days...
Dolly, Dead Crafty Beer Company, Liverpool
It's not just the beer that's crafty at this Liverpool venue, check out this cute Tibetan Terrier. You can even get 'Dead Crafty' branded dog treats at the bar.
Harry, The House Without a Name, Bolton
Harry, pictured here with customer Dave, is a popular figure. Licensee Jon-Paul Nolan says: "Harry is very timid and shy so if he comes to you, accepts a free biscuit or even just doesn't run a mile because you scared him by breathing, then you're very honoured."
Saffy, Sussex Yeoman, Brighton
Saffy is a popular figure in on the Sussex coast. Though she lives at the Yeoman she is seen here up the road at the Duke of Wellington, where she likes to go to watch the rugby.
Dooley, The Alford Arms, Frithsden, Herts
He describes himself on his Twitter biog as "Hard walking, squirrel-chasing, Mini Cheddar-munching chairman of Salisbury Pubs." We can't add to that so he could probably be a pub trade journalist as well.
