Photo of much-missed and beloved Bilbo


Lovely Bilbo, a Sheltidoodle, sadly passed away very suddenly in September last year. Karen told us they wanted him to be remembered and said “He will always be with us in our hearts”.

Teddy is Karen’s new puppy, a Miniature Labradoodle/Cockapoo cross who is full of joy and loving his walks. The rain and wet does not bother him and his favourite activities are walks and baths (a nice warm bath or failing that a muddy ditch!). Teddy enjoys walks at West Moors woodlands and Vereley near Burley. When he is a bit older he will visit Southbourne Beach, which was one of Bilbo’s favourite spots

Photo of Douglas with one ear cocked


Douglas is a young Schnoodle who moved to Dorset at the end of November and can’t believe his luck now he’s discovered dog-friendly beaches! His favourite thing is chasing his ball and rolling around in the sand. But he won’t go in the sea…that’s a step too far.

Tatty the Cairn Terrier walks around Abbotsbury and the surrounding countryside.

Clover loves playing with other dogs. This Yorkie cross also likes to collect pine cones and can carry 3 in her mouth at any time, sometimes with a stick as well. Clover walks in Bere Regis, Wareham Forest and on the Sika Trail.

Also joining in December:

Molli the Schichon is 15 months old and walks on the beach between Boscombe and Bournemouth. Molli’s favourite walk is at Hengistbury Head.

We know golden lab Milo, very well! He’s a regular on Dorset Dogs Guided Walkies, you will find lots of photos of him in the walkies photo albums at Dorset Dogs Facebook.

Chewie is a young Cavapoochon who would recommend walking on Dorset’s dog-friendly beaches and in particular Lulworth Cove. Chewie also walks at Canford Park SANG, Stour Valley and Bournemouth beaches.

Joe is a veteran! This venerable 14-year-old is a Shih Tzu who walks at Muscliffe Park.
