Would-be husbands can pay for a weekend of dog-friendly games and activities including obstacle courses, doggy-paddle boarding, paw golf and even canine yoga.

Dozens of venues in Newcastle have signed up to allow grooms to enjoy their stag dos with man's best friend – as well as their best man – in tow.

The wacky “doggy do” parties are being run by Geordie-based stag and hen company Last Night of Freedom.

Managing Director Matt Mavir said: "They say a dog is a man's best friend, so it seems only right that they should be able to spend the stag or hen by their owner's side.

"Millennials went dog mad during lockdown.

"Now a couple of years later they are all getting married, so that's left many customers facing the problem of what to do with their dog during their weekend away.

"Rather than dump them in a kennel, we believe this is the solution, plus having your canine by your side only enhances what will already be one of the most memorable weekends of your life."
