Dogs at Shugborough

A family and their dog walking in the garden

Shugborough welcomes dogs, to make sure that everyone has an enjoyable visit, we have put together some tips for if you're planning on bringing your four-legged friend on a day trip.

Shugborough is the perfect place for a walk with your dog, as there are so many acres to explore. We welcome all well behaved dogs that are on a lead in the outdoor areas of the estate and in Park Farm Café, and assistance dogs are allowed inside all of all of our buildings.

Why do dogs need to be on leads?

There are several reasons that we ask for dogs to be kept on leads, and one of the main reasons is for the safety both themselves and our animals. Shugborough is home to lots of livestock, who although may be hard to spot, are roaming in our large fields and are vulnerable if are startled by dogs. 

We also politely ask for all walkers who use the bridleway to keep their dogs on leads for the comfort of other visitors and the animals in the neighbouring fields.

Throwing away waste

We have several bins for you to dispose of your dog’s waste across the estate
