Great Global Greyhound Walk

Written by Cleome Beagley on

As a holiday cottage agency that provides pet-friendly accommodation, it probably comes as no surprise that we love our furry friends here at Wyke Dorset Cottages!

Recently I have adopted a pointy nosed greyhound of my own and discovered all the amazing opportunities of a pet owner in Dorset.

On Sunday we attended a special event called the Great Global Greyhound Walk at Upton Country Park in Poole. This is an annual dog-walking event that brings together greyhounds, lurchers, other sighthounds (and of course their owners!) to raise awareness of the breeds and show the public just what wonderful pets they make.

Over 60 of these pointy dogs gathered at the gorgeous setting of Upton Country Park, close by in Poole. It was quite the sight!

There are so many adventures to be had in Dorset, me and Pammie can’t wait to share them with you all... keep your eyes peeled!

Of course, if you are heading to the wonderful county of Dorset with your four-legged friend, check out our range of dog-friendly holiday cottages.
