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.

Evening everyone, I want to apologise for how quite this page has been the past few weeks. With lockdown and Covid, Dog Friendly Perthshire has faced some challenges. We are still here though and are looking forward to supporting many of the wonderful Perthshire businesses as they start to reopen in the coming days and weeks.

Some of you may know as well as doing Dog Friendly Perthshire, I voluntary run the organisation Missing Pets Perth and Kinross where myself and other wonderful volunteers help missing dogs, cats, rabbits horses and any other animal in need.

This week has been one of the most challenging weeks for myself and volunteers in terms of helping a family in need with their missing pet so to receive the following letter in the post has touched me immensely.

Whoever has nominated me for this, thank you ❤️

From the bottom of heart thank you so so much. I’m honestly lost for words that someone took the time to nominate me (and my dog Baxter!) and I’m overwhelmed and really touched by their kindness.

I feel like I’m going to ramble into an acceptance speech but I want to acknowledge others who have supported me with helping Missing Pets, not only through these past difficult months where we have faced new challenges but also over the years.

Elaine Gillon and the team from Dana’s Angels. Honestly thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and support, especially for the past year when at time’s its been particularly difficult. Many of these missing dogs would not have found their way home without you assisting too.

Dani Birnie from Search Dogs For Lost Dogs Scotland. Dani has set up her own organisation that helps train dogs as scent detection dogs to help trace dogs that are missing. We have been involved in some challenging missing dog searches together and thanks to her group and her skills more missing doggies have been reunited.

Joey has Tim, thank you for your help with your drones and your assistance with searches over the years. Not only in Perthshire but other parts of Scotland you have assisted in searches and having that skill has helped immensely.

Ian Hendry from DK9UK! Thank you to for all your help in recent searches, especially wee Coco as the hours you put in to help find her and the support you gave her family when we were struggling to travel due to restrictions was incredible.

My best pal and volunteer Chrissie! This woman is bloody amazing. She has driven me to searches in the middle of the night, stood in freezing fields with me (with our hot water bottles 🙈) and been completely understanding if halfway through a conversation I’ve had to say I’ve got to because of a missing dog or if I’ve turned up late somewhere because I’ve been trying to help an owner.

My long suffering but understanding husband Laurie! Laurie has had to put up at times with our life being interpreted due to missing dog or cat searches but he understands and supports me knowing the importance of helping an owner in need. He knows I can’t switch off is an owner need helps and has helped in many searches too and I really do appreciate him being there when it really does take up a huge part of not only my life but his.

To all the friends, our volunteers, missing pet groups and rescues who have assisted in searches recently and over the years, thank you so so much. There is far to many for me to tag but I appreciate absolutely every single one of you that helps.

And the thermal drone, scope, cameras, torches and other equipment could not have been purchased without everyone’s incredible kind donations.

Each and every single one of you who follow Missing Pets are part of the reunions which happen. So many of the missing pets would not have found their way home if it wasn’t for your help and support.

This letter honestly has meant so much to me after a difficult week and I love all of you that have supported myself and Missing Pets Perth and Kinross over the years.

All I want to do is try my best to help people, to get their pets home to them. It’s never been about recognition to me but I’m so touched that people think I deserve it ❤️❤️❤️

Much love to you all,

Katie, Baxter and the Missing Pets Perth & Kinross family 🐾
