Love Dogs... Love Nature

October 2016 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!

What a charming bunch!  Say hello to.....

Elli 1777



Paul says Elli is a Bracco Italiano, a 'quite rare and loving breed'.  She certainly looks snuggly Paul!




Darcy is a lovely sociable dog who loves the beach as well as meeting other dogs.

At this time of year we may find rare birds sheltering on our coast - find out more here



Scooby 1783



Deborah told us Scooby is a very special dog, he is a 2 year old rescue who did not have the best start in life and 'I adore him'.


Oscar 1779



Oscar & Poppy are cavapoos who live together,  Oscar's less than a year old whilst Poppy's the elder sibling at 5 years old.
Poppy 1779



...Maryanne says they're looking for new places - so our 'Out and About' and dog-friendly' pages should be right up your street - you may even want to join us on a guided walkies!





Harley, Rosie & Toby

'We love Delph woods, fun for our children and the dog babies!!' says Nicola - they enjoy nature reserve Canford Heath too - great to have two such special places on your doorstep!  They also enjoy Sandbanks - Sandbanks West is a great dog-friendly beach all year round!

Call to members!

If you know of places that you think should go on our 'Out & About' pages or 'dog-friendly' do get in touch and let us know by emailing us at  - we don't have so many places in West Dorset on there for example.

  We like to give information about great places to go with dogs, as well as giving information that helps us be aware of responsible walking if we're out on more sensitive sites too (for example, they may have wildlife, livestock or other things we may need to take into consideration when we're out with our dogs - check out the 'doggy do code').

Harley here is the working cocker who lives with Rosie & Toby, the Westies.


New members who've already used the 'join us' form or who joined at pit stops - if you didn't send in a photo remember you can always add your photos later, just send to: with your name and a bit about your dog and/or where you like to walk.  Don't forget we'd love to see you in the photo too!

LADY ​- A border terrier - Elspeth told us 'We love a good walk in Wareham Forest, especially in winter when other paths are wet under foot'. (One of my favourites too Elspeth - such a large diverse area with great trails, views and wildlife, some parts are busy whilst others are very quiet and feel remote)
