Dorset Dogs


Passionate about making the outdoors a better place for people, their dogs and nature

Dorset Dogs…Love Dogs…Love Nature

Dorset Dogs champions positive management for people with dogs in town, coast and countryside and promotes responsible dog ownership.


Established in 2009, Dorset Dogs, a nationally recognised, first of its kind, funded initiative has worked for 15 years with dog owners and land managers ( including Dorset Council, BCP Council, Forestry England, National Trust, Natural England, Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, Dorset Wildlife Trust and RSPB ).

Dog Walkers’

We champion access for dog walkers across Dorset’s coast and countryside and offer advice and feedback; for people who manage land where people walk, on best practice canine access management and for dog owners, promoting wildlife friendly and happy, healthy, stress free walks.

The Way

Our ethos is supported by many dog owners, dog businesses and charities and conservation and countryside organisations and has been described as delivering ‘ground breaking best practice and leading the way’. The project is not for profit and our membership, activities, events and resources are offered for FREE.
