Treat your dog at Dalkeith Country Park

They are a huge part of our families and bring so much joy to our lives, so it’s only right that we spoil them from time to time. Luckily for our four legged friends, this Thursday 10 Aug is Spoil Your Dog Day. We have plenty of ideas on how you can treat your dog..

Doggy Ice Cream

Is there anything better than ice cream on a sunny summer day? Your dog shouldn’t have to miss out, and the good news is they don’t have to. Our good friends at Restoration Yard have their very own doggy ice cream – created in partnership with the talented team at Giacopazzi’s – that will definitely get tails wagging.

Walkies Galore

Your pup will be thrilled to know that there is no shortage of walkie options here at Dalkeith Country Park. We have six waymarked trails starting at 1km and going all the way up to 7km.

Whether they love a leisurely stroll or prefer an action packed woodland adventure – with plenty of squirrels along the way! – we’ve got the walk to suit them.

Crumbs Cake

You may have heard of them or possibly have a pup that is entirely obsessed, around here Crumbs Cakes are the talk of the canine town. From our good friends at Crumbs of Portobello and available in The Larder and Coffee Bar at Restoration Yard, these freshly baked liver cakes will truly make you dogs day.

Treat your pup to a special Crumbs Cake this Thursday and if you’re feeling extra generous, buy one for later too. Happy dog, happy life!

Quality Time

Why not use this Spoil Your Dog Day to spend some quality time with your pooch. Slow things down, let them enjoy a good sniff walk stopping to smell as many things as they desire. Once they’re all sniffed out, take them to Dalkeith Palace Bowl with their favourite tug toy, frisbee or ball and play until they can play no more (for some this will take longer than others!).
