Nellie Bean

My name is Nellie Bean

Reggie & Ginny

I’m Emma and I’m a registered veterinary nurse. I’m the human behind labsupnorth! Reggie and Ginny are fox Red Labradors, Reggie is 4 and Ginny is 15 months.


We live on the coast and absolutely love it. Reggie is a bit of an anxious boy and not sure of other dogs but he’s been to the north east dog festival every year and always smashes it. Ginny is a confident girl and takes everything in her stride, it was her first visit last year when she was a puppy and she loved it.


We’ve been to the festival every year since it first started and are excited to be a bigger part of it this year.  


Lola was seized by the police August 2019, her only crime her appearance and judged a “Pitbull type” by tape measurements! She passed the temperance assessment with flying colours and although the court agreed she posed no risk to public safety and was allowed home, she is now subject to severe restrictions, including having to be kept on lead and muzzled in any public place. 

Lola campaigns to raise awareness and petitions to repeal BSL legislation. Two petitions have previously been debated in Parliament and a third is now awaiting a debate date. Her Facebook page Loved Lola (50k followers) documents her daily life and show how miss-understood Bull Breeds have become as a result of media miss reporting.

Willow & Bobby

Willow and Bobby, an English Springer spaniel and a sprocker, are two fun loving spaniels, living their best life by the sea in North East England. 

You'll find them most weekends running along the sand and paddling in the sea with their humans. If they're not by the coast they're traveling around, seeking out the best dog friendly places to visit. Both 6 years old and full character and charm.
