Dorset Dogs’ latest leaflet ‘Enjoying Dorset with Your Dog’ includes a map and advice about how you and your dog can safely enjoy our fantastic rural and urban countryside, including advice about wildlife and other features to be aware of when you’re out walking.

75 dog-friendly sites are included, ranging from urban parks to beaches and rural forests, a diverse mix with some offering an enjoyable 20 minute walk whilst others link to local trails providing the option to tire out even the most energetic of dogs! Almost all of the sites are off-lead or mainly off-lead, with most of them being suitable for off-lead exercise all year round, helping to safeguard more sensitive sites, wildlife and grazing animals.

You can find out more about the places featured in the leaflet on the ‘Out & About’ pages (please bear with us we are still adding some of them).

The free leaflet is available from libraries, tourist information centres and visitor centres across Dorset, you can also contact us for your copy or download it here:
