November's Staff Dog Blog
Castle Howard
By Guest Blogger  //  Fri 30th November 2018
By Will, our Garden Centre Manager
As our celebrations for Year of the Dog continue, we introduce you to another of our beloved staff dogs, Lola.

Lola is a 12 year old Weimaraner, so is a distinguished older lady. She has always worked in Garden Centres and enjoys meeting customers and their dogs who are always welcome in her Garden Centre. 

Lola's favourite place is just by the tills (possibly something to do with gravy bones) although now she is older she does have to pop to the office for an afternoon nap! Her best friend is Bramble the Patterjack who also works in the Castle Howard Garden Centre. 


Lola particularly enjoys the arrival of Christmas to Castle Howard; the Christmas trees and wreaths fill the Garden Centre and of course the extra dog toys and treats. Lola already has her eye on the new scruffs dog bed for Christmas! 

When Lola isn't at Castle Howard she enjoys a visit to Runswick Bay as it is dog friendly all year round. She is a keen swimmer and loves to fetch her frisby. She loves to travel and her favourite holidays have included paddling in St-Tropez and swimming in the Dordogne. 

We would love to see which part of the Estate our visitor's dogs enjoy the most. Take part in our Dog of the Month competition by sharing photos on social media of your canine friends at Castle Howard, tag us in your images using #dogsatcastlehoward. At the end of each month a winner will be announced and entered into the end of year draw to win a very special dog themed gift.
