Love Dogs... Love Nature

February 2018 New Members

IF you send in a photo of your dog when you join online you will automatically be one of our 'Dogs of the Month'! 

Did you know Dogs of the Month have their own special class at Dorset Dogs' annual Festival?

Don't forget we'd LOVE to see you with your dog in the photos too!

Welcome to our February members.....



A 16 week old Working Cocker Spaniel from Weymouth who lives with Bailey and enjoys muddy woods, splashing in the sea and meeting doggie friends along the way.


During the spring & summer months we're asked by local Rangers to inform people about where they need to be aware of birds nesting on the grounds on heaths or other specialised habitats - at this time of year dogs need to stay on the paths with us in those areas.

Check out the 'out & about' pages to find off-lead places to go, all-year round dog-friendly beaches and more information about nature reserves and their wildlife too!


and Bailey

Bailey lives with Henry and is an 18 month old Working Cocker Spaniel and together they love to explore. Bailey and Henry regularly walk in Thorncombe Fleet and Weymouth beach.



Logan is a 14 week old Shih Tzu from Poole.

Although Logan is only a little puppy he has lots of energy and loves going for walks, meeting other dogs and new people! He enjoys exploring and has already been to quite a few new environments which he loves! Kate says that living in Dorset we're privileged to have the beach and the New Forest so close by to be able to go walking and exploring and that in the next few weeks they'll find lots of places that Logan particularly loves.   

Logan walks in Broadstone Park, Baiter Park, Sandbanks and Canford Heath and would suggest walking on the beach in winter and the forest anytime as it's so natural and beautiful all year round.




This 3 year old Pug from Poole is a very happy and energetic pug when he's not asleep.

Loki walks at Upton Country Park and Baiter Park.




Sky is a 9 year old Mini Schnauzer who loves the beach and walks with lots of other dogs including regularly attending the Dorset Schnauzer walks.

Sky enjoys walking at Queen's Park, Strouden Park and Hengistbury Head and would recommend Branksome Beach, Avon Heath and Studland as great dog walking sites.




Scout is a 5 year old Labrador who lives with Fizzy and regularly walks in Puddletown and Thorncombe Woods.



and Fizzy

Fizzy is 11 years old and loves swimming in the sea. Scout and Fizzy would suggest the beaches of Dorset as great dog walking in the winter.


1 Flossy Stanley Alfie

Flossy, Stanley and Alfie

Flossy, 14 years old and her sons Stanley and Alfie, both 12, are crazy and love galloping around all the open spaces available to them. Gill told us that even though they are getting older they still think they are pups!

Flossy, Stanley and Alfie regularly walk in fields in Rampisham, West Bay, Lyme Regis, Weymouth, Common Lane, Halstock and lots of other beaches. This trio would suggest beaches all year round and forest or field walks in the summer.

2 Flossy Stanley Alfie  


Shadow is a Sprocker from Bearwood who Andy says is still a naughty puppy at age 9! Shadow likes to walk on Canford Heath.



Kall is a 6 year old Terrier from Sturminster Newton.


and Bofors

Kall lives with Bofors the Lurcher and they both do Agility training. Kall and Bofors enjoy walks in North Dorset and suggest Studland and Melbury Hill as great dog walking sites.




This 2 year and 11 month old Boxer has recently been adopted from Margaret Green Animal Rescue.

Skippy walks at Swanage and in Purbeck and would recommend Durlston, the harbour side of Studland and Shell Bay

Welcome to to everyone else who's joined this month:

ACE is a 3 year old Samoyed from Ferndown who enjoys regular walks in Ferndown Common, New Forest, Upton Country Park and Sandbanks. Nicky told us that Ace loves to run through the woods and isn't keen on water that he even dodges puddles. Ace was rescued from China's meat trade and brought over to the UK for a better life. He loves his walks around Dorset and is constantly looking for new experiences and friends.

TESS and LENNY a 7 year old Westie and 2 year old from Poole. Lenny is a rescue from Romania who is very friendly and Tess can be a stubborn girl - a typical Westie. Susan told us that she likes to walk anywhere the dogs can be stimulated with sights and smells and where they can run off lead. Tess and Lenny walk at Hamworthy Park, Ham Common, Upton Country Park and Moors Valley.

BAILEY and REMY are 26 week and 14 week old Cockapoos from Reading who like people and being sociable and enjoy walking. They would suggest Durdles Door as a great dog walking site.

LUNA is a Cockapoo from Poole. This 9 month old walks at Upton Heath, Parkstone and especially the beach as she likes to be near water. Luna is only a puppy so can't go for long walks yet but is looking forward to exploring Dorset.
