    HI!


    So I know this post is kind of weird but, here we go...

    Next year (2008/2009) I am studying in UK and I still have not decided at which faculty I want to study. I am currently studying agriculture in my country, but for the 4th year I got the opurtunity to go somewhere in uk.
    The thing is that I would really want to take my dog with me. so here is the problem : he is big (50 kg), but he is totally housebroken and everything so there would not be any problems with him.
    I was checking the university of leeds and university of wales, aber. I am studying agriculture but in my last year I want something more conected with animals (leeds for example - zoology animal science...)
    I want to know if anyone has experience with faculties and how they will accept dogs. Of course he won't be with me on lectures, he will wait at home.
    I am worried about accomodation. Does anyone know if dogs are accepted in places that are offered by faculties? I would like to have a room to myself (not shared). Or are there like privete accomodations around faculties (where they accept dogs). And parks...
    Are there any special laws in leeds or wales...(I konw about leash law, picking after your dog, he is also not a "dangerous breed"...) ?

    Thanks

    As far as I am aware dogs are not allowed in on campus student accomodation, with the exception of assistance dogs. Lots of students in britain live in shared rented housing, but again I think you would find it difficult to find a landlord who allowed dogs. Your best source of information would be to contact the uni's directly with your quiery.

    Yo Paw paw, how are you. Frustrated I'll bet. Mate, don't know if this will interest you, but here goes. Lackham College in Wiltshire is an agricultural college and is about half hours drive from the PET FRIENDLY house I am renting out. The size of your dog for my property is not an issue (Ihave 3 large and 1 medium), they love the garden.
    Anyway mate just a thought......you might already be sorted but good luck.......oh yes I keep mentioning this website, try Pet Friendly Rentals - pets welcome property & UK holiday accommodation to rent some nice properties there
    All the best
