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.

9 year old Sophie loves pugs more than anything. Every birthday and Christmas she has asked for a pug. Like her mum who is an artist, she wants to sell her own artwork to raise money towards adopting a rescue pug.
With the help of her parents she has launched Pumpkin & Pug designing and creating products throughout the year - most of which will have a pug or cat theme! She has decided to donate 10% of her profits each month to the PDWRA Pug Dog Welfare and Rescue Association! Please show your support and give Sophie’s Facebook page a like ❤️🐶🐾
