Crantock beach is a National Trust beach just outside Newquay. The river Gannel runs through the sand, with crystal clear water that glows a stunning turquoise under the sun. It’s is dog friendly all year round and there are seasonal RNLI lifeguards situated at two points; one on the Gannel and one overlooking the sea. [Read more…]
I’ve been a professional photographer for a few years now. Since leaving university and freelancing, I’ve noticed that photographers aren’t always credited for their work. Woody and I work with pet friendly businesses from time to time, creating blogposts, videos and photographs. We love working with businesses across the UK but have a particular love for Cornish companies. I’m fortunate to have worked with so many incredible brands since starting The Cornish Dog and am grateful for their understanding when it comes to credit. I know it can be confusing at first, so I wanted to create this post to outline the ways to properly credit your photographer online. [Read more…]
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend a networking event with a difference. Organised by the lovely Charlotte of The Palm Tree Club, this wasn’t your usual awkward ice breakers and talks over tea and cake! Gylly beach in Falmouth isn’t dog friendly, so this was a human only event. If you’re a female business owner in Cornwall, who loves spending time outdoors, this is the meet up for you! [Read more…]
Summer is in full swing here in Cornwall, which means plenty of warm weather, long evenings and excuses to get out and explore. There are so many dog friendly beaches all over the county and I thought it was high time we shared some of our favourites! Each week, until the end of summer, we’ll share with you a new dog friendly beach from across Cornwall. To kick things off, where best to start than our all time favourite, Grebe beach! [Read more…]
Penbugle Organic Farm recently invited us for a two night stay in one of their Wigwams. Situated in St. Keyne, close to Liskeard and Duloe, the farm is the perfect place to set up camp if you’re looking to explore South East Cornwall. They’re dog friendly of course and offer a range of Bell Tents and standard camping pitches on site. [Read more…]
When I moved back to London after university, I left a huge part of me behind in Cornwall. Over the coming months and years, I slowly lost myself. I felt anxious, lost and depressed – qualities that have never really been my jam. Fast forward a couple of years and I took the brave decision to move back to the Duchy. Since then, I’ve been slowly finding my style, both in work and leisure. With Woody by my side, things have changed in ways I could never have predicted and I’m finally feeling more me.
We’ve come across plenty of lost dogs in Cornwall while out on our walks, or owners desperately out looking for pets who have run away. I always stop and help if I can, as I understand how worrying it can be. Losing your dog is a traumatic experience, particularly in Cornwall where there are plenty of hazards. It’s a scenario that’s always playing at the back of your mind as a dog owner. Do you know what to do if you found a lost dog in Cornwall? Today I thought I’d share with you some of our tips.

Woody seems to have acquired quite the collection of stuff since I adopted him. I’ve come to realise that we only use a handful of his belongings on a regular basis, which prompted a much needed sort through of his things. Today I’d like to share with you some of our tips for decluttering with your dog. [Read more…]
We’d heard a lot about Dog Fest through social media and our dog blogging friends. When we realised Bristol would be the host of the first Dog Fest West, I thought it was the perfect opportunity for a trip up country. Bristol is about three hours from Cornwall, or where we live at least! I decided to book us an Airbnb for a couple of nights, to really make the most of our stay.
Summer is upon us and the long, lazy evenings are a welcome change to the cold and damp winter we’ve had in Cornwall. It’s also my first summer with Woody by my side. We’ve managed to navigate the beach ban so far and are looking forward to more adventures in the coming months! With the summer solstice fast approaching, I thought I’d share some of my summer dog walking essentials! [Read more…]
A couple of weeks ago, Woody and I found ourselves in the big smoke. My car needed its MOT and it gave us the perfect excuse to spend some time with my family, who live in London. Of course, we met up with Millie too and she ended up coming back with us to Cornwall for an extended holiday (lucky thing!) [Read more…]
It’s been a year since I moved back to Cornwall and it’s undoubtably the best decision I’ve ever made. I’m far happier, more independent and at home here than I’ve ever felt before. To celebrate the occasion, I thought I’d share with you some of my highlights from the past 12 months.
