Sittingbourne's Doggy Directory

It’s no surprise why dogs are known as man’s best friend. They are always there for us with a wagging tail. So it’s not unreasonable to want to be able to take them everywhere you go…

In Sittingbourne, we have a great range of businesses and shops that will welcome your four-legged friends. We also have some fabulous services from dog training to home visits that you can rely on.

At Harrisons Homes, we too will welcome your dogs with open arms when you come into our estate agents located in West Street. We hope this guide will help new homeowners in the area, and it might even surprise a few residents that have been here longer.

To coincide with the end of January which is walk your dog month, we thought we’d celebrate our dog-friendly area by putting together a directory of businesses in the Sittingbourne area where dogs are welcome.
