Pet Friendly Days Out in Dorset
Beaches
At the time of writing dogs are allowed on a specific area of Weymouth beach which is flat and sandy, ideal for your playmate to run off some energy. However this area is not that big and may be better suited to smaller dogs.  An alternative beach is Charmouth East Beach where dogs are currently permitted before 10am and after 6pm.  This beach would be ideal for dogs to run around in the sand and also splash around in the sea as it's a gently shelving coast.  There is also Durdle Door beach in the area but there are very steep steps to access this beach so may not be suitable for everyone.  It's worth getting down the steps however as the water is crystal clear.  There is also a nice coastal path which runs along the top of the cliffs.
Sherbourne Castle
Sherborne Castle is an historic country house in a delightful setting surrounded by stunning grounds and a very impressive 50 acre lake which was created by Capability Brown in 1753. Visitors can take a tour of the house and see the Tudor, Jacobean, Georgian and Victorian rooms.  The gorgeous lakeside gardens are ideal for those with dogs. Dogs welcome on leads in the grounds.
Durlston Country Park & Marine Project
Located in the Swanage area of Dorset this makes a great day out for the whole family. The site offers 280 acres of open countryside consisting of sea-cliffs, coastal limestone, haymeadows, hedgerows and woodland. The whole site affords stunning views and there are plenty of walking trails to explore. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads at all times.
Blue Pool, Furzebrook
Blue Pool is one of Dorset's most popular attractions. The stunning beauty spot changes with the seasons and offers a tranquil place for a day out. As well as the breathtaking flora and fauna visitors can enjoy the tea room, museum, gift shop and of course the mystical pool itself which constantly varies in colour and is a real sight to behold. Dogs welcome but restrictions may apply in some areas.
