If you’re looking for things to do in Petersfield with your canine friend, we’ve got you covered with a range of adventures around the town. We’ve even found places that let dogs in for free! There’s no denying how important a member of the family our four legged friends are, so why on earth would you leave them at home when you can explore with them! Take a look below at our top 5 dog friendly things that the whole family can enjoy…

1. Explore Butser Ancient Farm

Delve into the ancient past and stomp the grounds that the ancestors of the South Downs have before from the Stone Age and Iron Age right through to the Romans and Saxons. The site is nestled into a charming corner of the South Downs National Park with several footpaths close by to scout.

2. Peruse around The Heath Lake

Take a waterside walk in the heart of Petersfield at The Heath. It could be a simple loop following the boardwalk around the pond or head off the beaten track towards the expansion of heathland where dogs can bash about. Finish off with some light refreshments to refuel at The Plump Duck.

3. Take your dog for a meal!

After exploring the history of Petersfield, why not head to The Townhouse where both man and dog alike will be well looked after. The friendly and informal pub offers a plethora of beers and gastro-quality food served by a friendly team. Dogs are welcome and can expect to be treated with a biscuit out of the treat jar!

5. Go shopping at Animal Crackers…


All the good doggos deserve a treat – why not have a spree in one of Petersfield’s independent pet shops, Animal Crackers. Spoil your pet with some high quality treats or a new toy for the collection; or push the boat out and seek advice from the team and overhaul your dog’s daily nutrition or grooming routine.
