Dog Walking in Putney
Putney is located in the leafy Borough of Wandsworth and is home to over 29764 residents, 23 bars, 3 tube stations and many pup friendly pubs and restaurants. If you asked your dog what they would like to do with their afternoon they’d almost definitely mention walkies, so we thought we’d better include a few pawsome parks and walks to check out. As well as some tip top dog friendly eateries and pet shops to stop off for treats if your pooch has been a particularly good boy. If you are a frequent dog walker in South West London you will know there are plenty of green open spaces perfect for afternoon walks with your four legged friend. Barnes & Putney Common is a good place to start for a short walk - this normally takes around 50 minutes and offers scenic views, a wooded area as well as a brook, if your pooch likes to swim.
The Thames Path from Putney Bridge to Barnes is also a lovely riverside walk that makes for a peaceful amble particularly on a sunny day. If you feel like a slightly longer walk you can follow the path all the way to Kew - the Thames path is well signposted and easy to follow so there is little chance of getting lost.
If you’re new to the area and have wondered “where can I walk my dog in Putney” you should head to Putney Heath which is roughly a 2 hour walk. The Heath is popular for picnics in warmer months with plenty of open space for your pooch to burn off any extra energy.
Where to eat in Putney with your dog
If you are dog sitting in Putney and are looking for a doggy friendly lunch, The Jolly Gardeners is a short walk from the high street. Serving up traditional pub grub and a range of craft ales - a perfect Sunday lunch option.
A great place by the river for drinks and a bite to eat is the Duke’s Head who not only have an extensive food menu but also welcome dogs with open arms and are happy to provide water and ear ruffles.
If it’s coffee and cake you fancy whilst walking a dog in Putney, then Putney Pantry is a must. A lovely little independent cafe that offers a selection of homemade treats and welcomes four legged friends.
