Out and About with Fido!

It's well established that the weather in the UK is unpredictable, to say the least – and this year has certainly proved that! With a bank holiday looming, here's a look at some things to do in all weathers with your furry friends. 

The furriest film critics around

Are you a fan of films, and wish you could take your pooch along with you to see the latest blockbuster? The Picturehouse Cinemas chain regularly holds dog-friendly screenings. Having been running for over a year now, the screenings have been setting tongues – and tails – wagging nationwide. Every month or so, well-behaved dogs can accompany their owners to a select film screening, usually on a Sunday morning. 

The staff always have snacks and water at the ready, and ensure that all dogs sit on blanketed seats to prevent any hairs or mess. Films are shown with the volume lower than your average screening, to accommodate the dogs' sensitive hearing. 

A large number of Picturehouse Cinemas up and down the country hold these showings; the best way to find out if your local Picturehouse accommodates Man's Best Friend is to check its blog

Out and about in Dorset

If you're local to, or ever visit, the Dorset area with your pooch, be sure to check our Dorset Dogs. Set up by a group of land managers – who are also dog owners – Dorset Dogs was created to find more positive ways to manage issues they had experienced out and about (eg fouling, or disturbances to wildlife, grazing animals or other people), as well as recognising the benefits that dog owners and their dogs can bring. 

The website has a host of information, such as an events page, which lists a whole range of different activities, classes and gatherings that take place in various places across the county, and a Dog Friendly page with details on pubs, cafes, tourist attractions and accommodation that will welcome your pooch with open paws ... er, arms!
