Dog Friendly Perth Locations

Dog Friendly Beaches

There are so many beaches where you can take your pooch, here’s just a few of the best ones:

Whitfords Dog Beach Located in Hillary’s, this dog beach offers around a kilometre of beach to give your dogs a good run. For pups that like a paddle, the waves are usually quite small and in summer there’s a visiting coffee van and even a mobile dog wash in residence.

Peasholm Dog Beach, Floreat – Found between the popular Scarborough and Floreat beaches, this beach is a great spot for an early morning dip, when the waves are small. The beach is accessed via a series of sand dunes, so it’s the perfect option for dog owners hoping to combine a walk and a play.

Mosman-Leighton Dog Beach – Nestled amongst tall sand dunes, this beach stretches for two kilometres and has a designated off-leash area on the western side of the car park. It offers beautiful views of the Fremantle Port and Rottnest Island, and there’s also a few cafes and park areas within walking distance.

Canning River Regional Park & Canning River Cafe

A huge park, a shady walking trail and a lovely cafe makes this a great place for a doggy day out. The Canning River Regional Park is one of the few places in Perth which creates a haven for wildlife and the community alike. Wander around the wetlands and waterways of the Canning River through the beautiful native bushland. There is loads of native wildlife that call this area home, so dogs are required to be kept on leash. After your walk and play, head over to the River Café – a dog-friendly cafe that sells delicious treats for humans and their four-legged pals.

Whiteman Park

With shady ovals, multiple barbeques, picnic shelters, and many walks to enjoy, Whiteman Park is one of the most enjoyable and welcoming places for dogs in Perth. Also featuring a village cafe and shops, cycle paths, a children’s water playground and a new fully fenced dog park – take the whole family and spend an entire day enjoying everything it has to offer. The dog park enclosure covers more than 2 hectares and includes water points, shaded seating and an obstacle and agility course.

Furbaby Café – Westminster

A popular addition to the Perth pet-friendly scene, Furbaby Cafe is a high-quality eatery which doesn’t just allow dogs, but welcomes them warmly and includes them as part of the family. Priding themselves on their fantastic dog and human friendly customer service, there’s also a pet beauty parlour and pet boutique inside. Buy some designer doggy items, indulge in some tasty treats or sit with your furry friend while you sip on a coffee. Fully enclosed and shaded with lush plants, the space is large with lots of room so pooches and their owners can relax in comfort.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding – Pups on SUP’s

Located at Sandy Beach Reserve in Bassendean, take your pup and go stand up paddle boarding. A unique way to get fit while having fun with your dog, a qualified SUP instructor will assist you and your dog on the paddle board in a safe and friendly environment. Operating on Sundays (weather permitting).

Doga – Dog Yoga

An excellent way to relax, stretch and bond, Doga is a calming outdoor yoga session incorporating breathing techniques to relax both you and your best friend. Sessions begin with massage and stretching techniques for your dog, progressing to human yoga postures that will involve your four-legged friend. There’s no better way to get active and spend quality time together.
