Welcome to the Isle of Wight, one of the most dog-friendly places in Britain. Launching in April 2012 Pawprint is Wightlink's newest free guide to the Isle of Wight.
Guaranteed to set tails wagging, this guide tells you all that’s good for dogs visiting the Isle of Wight, we paw-stamp the best stomping grounds, pubs and accommodation for canines, it is intended to help dogs and their two-legged companions sniff out great places to visit across all four corners of the Island. With no requirement for a pet passport and free Wightlink ferry travel for dogs accompanied by their owners, it is an unbeatable holiday option for the canine community.
Pawprint is a guide with a difference because it tells you all about the Island from a dog’s-eye view. In it there are pawtraits of dogs who share their ‘paws of wisdom’ so you have all the information you need to sniff out the best the Island has to offer for yourself.
Before emBARKing on the guide, Wightlink conducted a Pawprint Poll of over 100 dogs using its ferry terminals to find what holidaying hounds enjoy most. The booklet provides information that covers all the key point made by dogs (and their owners) and recommends the best year-round beaches, woodland walks and cliff adventures – among them top-rated Appley Sands, Bembridge, The Duver, Parkhurst Forest and Tennyson Down. Details of the most dog-friendly pubs and accommodation are also included.
With an abundance of unspoiled countryside to explore, beaches that are dog-friendly and an extensive footpath network of over 500 miles, the Isle of Wight is the perfect place for dog owners to holiday with their four-legged friends. Pick up a copy of Pawprint featuring Island canines such as Breez, the biking German Shepherd, and surfer dog Sherrie to find out about their top tips for enjoying a canine-friendly break on Wight.
