Welcome to Dog Friendly Perthshire

Dog Friendly Perthshire is the dog owners guide to the numerous dog friendly places to eat, stay and things to do in Perth and the surrounding area of Perthshire.

Perthshire really is THE dog friendly capital of Scotland.

Perthshire, our beautiful part of Scotland, has long been famous for its breath-taking scenery. With acres of fantastic forests, gorgeous glens, magnificent mountains and rushing rivers it’s the perfect destination for you and your four-legged best friend to explore together.

Scotland is also known for its warm welcome, and on the following pages you’ll find a list of businesses who passionately believe that when you are ready for a bite to eat, a wander round the shops, or a place to rest your head at the end of your day – your dog shouldn’t be left out in the cold.

Once the ancient capital of Scotland, Perthshire is determined to reclaim its crown – as the Dog Friendly Capital of Scotland.

Hi everyone, we are really needing your help for a Perthshire family and their much loved dog ❤️

Sadly, the family we are requesting your help with have come to the very difficult decision that on Monday their elderly dog will be crossing Rainbow Bridge. This isn’t a decision that has been easy for them but this weekend they are wanting to treat Monty to all his favourite things are create some wonderful memories with him.

Monty absolutely loves the water. Due to his age though he can’t travel very far. His family are needing your help please to find somewhere suitable that he could have a paddle. It needs to be super gentle, very little slope, not rocky River access paddle points just metres from a place to park a car. Also within approx 15 mins drive from PH3 1HS area (Balgowan).

It would be great if we can help Monty and his family make some beautiful memories this weekend ❤️❤️❤️

It’s so nice to be able to take our doggy pals to so many places in Perth - thanks to all Katie’s hard work!! X ... See MoreSee Less
