Dog Friendly Dartmoor
With miles and miles of moorland to play with, it’s no surprise that Dartmoor is a hugely popular place for our four-legged friends.
Whether you choose to follow old railway tracks, well-worn paths that lead to Dartmoor’s most iconic Tors, or grab a map or guided walk guide and go exploring with your dog, you can be assured that a dog friendly day on the moors is fun and enjoyable for all the family.
There is a wide variety of dog friendly places to eat, drink and stay on Dartmoor. From the cafes, pubs and hotels that welcome muddy paws and muddy boots (quite often with a doggy treat for your best pal available), to the range of dog friendly accommodation including bed and breakfasts, cottages, farms and hotels, whether you’re visiting for a day or staying for a week, you can be assured that Dartmoor welcomes both you and your dog.
As Doggy Devon liker, Louise, says “Stanley and I find walking on Dartmoor our very favourite thing to do with the freedom to run, jump, climb, paddle and admire the amazing scenery around us.”
Well behaved dogs are welcome on Dartmoor throughout the year, but to ensure dog friendly Dartmoor, remains just that, dog friendly, responsible owners are asked to enjoy Dartmoor whilst being mindful of the moor code of conduct:
- Always control your dog, so that it does not scare or disturb cattle, sheep or ponies (livestock)
- When walking your dog on Dartmoor, please keep it on a short lead during the lambing and bird breeding season (1st March – 31st July)
- If you cannot rely on your dog’s obedience, keep it on a lead
- If your dog is chasing sheep or cattle, a farmer is entitled to shoot your dog
- Disturbance of ground nesting birds by dogs will result in the loss of eggs and chicks
- Please clear up after your dog and dispose of poo bags responsibly
If you do witness dogs chasing or disturbing livestock, telephone the Police on 101 and please report incidents you have witnessed to the Livestock Protection Officer on 07873 587561, recording:
- The location (include a grid reference if possible);
- Description of dog and owner, and the vehicle registration; and
