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.

Dogs welcome in Perthshire

What I love about Perthshire being Dog Friendly is that there are so many fabulous independent local shops, restaurants, cafes and not forgetting  the various dog friendly accommodations that are leading the way and showing the benefits of welcoming dogs into their premises.

Dogs Welcome…

I was quite surprised and saddened recently to be told after a Perthshire business announced they were going to do a trial run of allowing dogs on their premises they received quite a bit of negative feedback. Comments made were the dogs would be smelly, make a mess of the premises and just be a…

I was wondering if anyone on this page would be able to help me, I'm looking for a dog sitter that is available from the 5th - 11th September the dog belongs to my grandparents and they would like someone who is able to live in their house (in Blairgowrie) with the dog while they are away. If you happen to know of anyone able to help please get in touch!

Thank you 🙂

Just to let everyone know Pups In The Pub is still on tomorrow night! I’ve just not had the chance to make an event page for it this week.

Plan is for the walk part to meet at 6pm at the Sir Walter Scott Statue at the South Inch. We will then head to The Green Room for 7PM.

If it’s raining heavy then we will just meet at The Green Room at 7. Baxter has already stocked up on biscuits for his pals!
