Love Dogs... Love Nature

June 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 June members.....

Polar 2095


Polar is a 4 year old Alaskan Malamute who is a big friendly giant. Polar enjoys walks in Wareham Forest and Studland Beach.

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!

Homer 2097


This 12 year old Whippet from Cerne Abbas normally walks in Cerne and the local area, Poundbury, along the River Frome and Hillfield.

Carol told us that although Homer is getting older he is still fit.


Holly 2097

and Holly

Holly lives with Homer and is a 5 year old small cross breed Terrier. Holly is a Greek rescue dog, loves walks, but is a little timid around other dogs due to her past experiences. Carol told us she just loves her walks here in Dorset.


Toby 2098


Toby is a 4 year old Border Terrier from Portland who loves walking in Westcliffe.

Hilary says that if Toby sees a cat he will not move - not even to go for his walk!

Ollie 2099

Dylan 2104


Sharon says that Dylan, a 6 year old Jack Russell, is a plodder unless there is ball around. As Dylan is so laid back they thought he would appreciate a pal so Ollie joined the family.



Ollie 2104


Ollie, the 6 year old Jack Russell and Dylans pal, is not laid back on any level but luckily he's cute and gets forgiven says Sharon. They wouldn't change either of them though!

Laid back Dylan and not so laid back Ollie enjoy walking in Thorncombe Wood and on Studland Beach.


Polly 2105


Polly is a 3 year and 3 months old Labrador Collie cross from Lytchett Matravers who walks at Holton Lee, Badbury Rings, Wareham Forest and Corfe Mullen Rec.
