Each year New Hampshire Magazine sets out to determine the Best of New Hampshire! You can use the online ballot to vote for your favorite in all different categories from your favorite place to buy pizza to your favorite antique shops and everything in between!
The Best of New Hampshire Awards focus on local people and businesses that can only be found in the Granite State. This prestigious award is a chance for business owners to boast they are the best New Hampshire has to offer. After the polling closes for this year on March 15th, the results will be published and the businesses who have been deemed the ‘best’ will gain major recognition.
Best Dog Walker?
At Homeward Bound, we would love to gain that recognition but there is just one slight problem! While New Hampshire Magazine has several pet related categories you can vote for they do not yet have a category for Dog Walking! At the end of the poll, there is a section to write-in any categories (and the business you believe should win that category) that you feel the magazine’s editors may have missed. This is where you come in and can vote for your favorite dog walker. It would mean so much to us here at Homeward Bound if we were awarded as the best dog walking business in New Hampshire. If you could put in a good word for us while filling out your survey, we would be so grateful!
In order for your survey to be accepted, you have to fill out a minimum of 10 of your favorites. To help you do this, we have compiled a list of Homeward Bound’s favorites in regards to everything pet related in New Hampshire.
