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.

Heads up for owners of pets that may be frightened by the noise of fireworks! Tomorrow night (16/11/19) between 6pm to 6.15pm at the Perth Christmas Light Switch On there will be a fireworks display.

While they can be wonderful for us humans to look at, our animals with much better hearing may not agree, so remember to keep a close eye on your pets during this time as we don’t want any scared or even missing pets ❤️

Hawkwind the 1970s Rock Band have set out on a 50th anniversary tour. As they are going round the UK they are showing a slide show of Lost & Stolen Dogs. One of the dogs they are highlighting this coming weekend that we are still searching for is darling Rossi.

Rossi’s mum is grateful that everyone is still searching and looking out for Rossi as there isn’t a day goes by where they don’t think of her and miss her terribly.

A big thank you too Dog Lost UK for all your help with making this happen and of course to Hawkwind too for using your platform to help missing dogs hopefully find their way home where they belong ❤️
