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.

Fergus’s humans have bought him a snufflemat to help keep him amused during lockdown! You hide your dogs treats in the ruffles and your dog then has to sniff them out. It’s a great way to help keep your dogs mentally stimulated ❤️🐶🐾 ... See MoreSee Less

Every week before lockdown Baxter and best dog friends Tilly and Tally and us humans always took part in The Venue pub quiz every Wednesday.
Not only is it a fab dog friendly pub but it was great fun being able to do the quiz with the dogs. Also the quizmaster Gary is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and loved seeing the dogs every Wednesday and always made a huge fuss over them too.
Since lockdown, we have been adapting to not going out and socialising like we did before and it is at times difficult to keep some sort of routine. This is where Gary the quizmaster has come along and brightened our weeks! Every Wednesday and Sunday he is doing a quiz on Facebook live for free! It really has lifted all our moods and it’s made us forget any stresses or worries by playing along with all our friends.
I think Gary’s kindness and his ways of continually making us smile just deserves a wee mention and once Lockdown is over I really do recommend coming along to The Venue in Perth on a Wednesday with your doggies to play along in the quiz too ❤️🐶🐾
