You’re spoilt for choice on where to take your dog for a walk while in Dorset. As has been mentioned the beaches are a fantastic way to get some exercise for you and your dog while on holiday in Dorset and it’s hard to discuss great walking routes without mentioning the South West Coast Path. Starting in Poole harbour the route hugs the south Dorset coastline passing great coastal towns including Wareham, Swanage , Charmouth, Eype and West Bay and features some of the most dramatic and breath-taking views along the World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast.
There is plenty more of the county to see other than the coastal locations. Head inland and enjoy walks through the rolling countryside that is found across Dorset.
