Chatsworth welccomes dogs! Plus there's a Dogs Exhibition until 6 October 2019

Have you been watching Channel 4’s programme, Puppy School?  

It’s not easy getting a new puppy.  And Puppy School helps new owners navigate the joys and frustrations of taking on a pup.

It been taking place on a Friday evening and I think it makes excellent viewing.  And apart from thoroughly enjoying the puppy bits, I’ve loved the setting – Chatsworth House.   If you love dogs and you’re a dog owner, Sit! and take note of the following…

There are two fab things you may not know about Chatsworth House.

Chatsworth has a dog exhibition this year! 

This is on now, until 6 October 2019. The exhibition celebrates our best friend.  Woof, woof!  You can explore the exhibition with a house & garden, or house, garden & farmyard ticket.   And in the spirit of the exhibition, Chatsworth is doing more to encourage dogs and well-behaved owners. 

Dogs are very welcome at Chatsworth!

You can take your dog to visit (but please note, dogs aren’t allowed in the house with the exception of service dogs, and you certainly can’t leave dogs in the car.  There’s plenty of woof things to do when you get there – which dog wants to see round a house when you could be going Walkies!?  After all, if you’ve got some very ancient items sitting around on display, the last thing you want is a very waggy tail sending them flying. 

There’s plenty of helpful information about visiting with your dog here – note the farmyard and playground are out of bounds too.   There are doggy drinking stations, and even a hashtag, #Chatswoof.  There’s a dog walk map and #Chatswoof dog, Henry, who gets up to a lot of mischief on the Chatsworth estate and you can catch up with him on Instagram at #Chatswoof.

So where is Chatsworth?

Chatsworth is in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire – it featured in Pride & Prejudice as Pemberley (not the one where Colin Firth comes out of the lake in his white shirt).  And you’ll find Chatsworth here with a map and directions.
