Dog Day at Jubilee Pool is a popular event in the Cornish dogs calendar. Each year hundreds of dogs descend on the open air saltwater lido in Penzance, before it closes for the season. Woody, Hen and I attended for the first time this year and had an absolutely amazing time together
Woody, Hen and I recently completed our third and final week hiking the Cornish Coast Path. We tackled the stretch from Gwithian to Cape Cornwall but the path ultimately got the better of us. We’re not giving up completely, however we have decided to postpone our adventure. I’ll go into depth about our reasons for doing so, as well as the experiences that have prompted our decision!
We were invited to stay at The Woodland Collection, a group of luxury holiday homes at Sunrise Farm, conveniently located between Helston, Hayle and Penzance. We stayed at The Woodland Collection during our Cornish Coast Path adventure, while tackling the stretch between Hayle and Cape Cornwall. Having somewhere to base ourselves was comforting. Nothing quite beats a relaxing warm shower after a day of hiking!
DOGSCLOSURE: We received a complimentary 3 night stay at The Woodland Collection during our in exchange for this blogpost review.
We’ve completed our second week on the Cornish Coast Path and managed a respectable hike from Port Isaac to Gwithian, Hayle. It’s been another fantastic week on the trail and we’re continued to be blown away by everyone’s generosity – we’ve nearly reached our fundraising goal already! Without further ado, here’s our second weekly roundup of the path, featuring all the high’s, lows and everything in between.
Our Cornish Coast Path adventure is well underway. We’ve conquered just under 25 miles of the path in our first week and have definitely caught the hiking bug. It’s by no means an easy feat but we’re loving every minute. There have steep cliff climbs, livestock fields and beautiful wildlife along the way and I thought I’d share a little more about our adventures on the path so far, between Bude and Trebarwith Strand!

Woody, Hen and I have an exciting announcement! We’re heading off on our biggest adventure yet and can’t wait to bring you with us. Together, we’ll be hiking the Cornish Coast Path. A 300 mile hike from Bude to Plymouth, taking us past all the dog friendly beaches in Cornwall!
I’ve been fostering dogs for Spaniel Aid UK since the start of 2019. It’s been a whirlwind of an experience so far and I’ve definitely learnt a lot. We’re excited to welcome our fifth foster dog into our home this autumn. I thought I’d share with you some of our foster dog essentials, products that have made our fostering experience so much more enjoyable!

Woody, Hen and I recently returned from our first camping trip together. We stayed in a farmer’s field just outside Boscastle and had a fantastic time. Camping with dogs can seem daunting at first, in fact I’d been putting it off for months out of fear of something going wrong. Fortunately, we all survived to tell the tale and today I thought I’d share with you more about our first wild camping experience together!
Woody, Hen, foster dog Snoop and I recently took a trip to see our friends Cockapoo Marley upcountry. During our stay, we travelled to North Wales to climb Mount Snowdon with the dogs. I’d never climbed a mountain before, let alone with 3 dogs, so was eager to take on the challenge! We took the Miner’s Track, which joins the Pyg Track for a steep ascent to the summit. The route is completely dog friendly and we had a whale of a time. We’ve definitely caught the mountaineering bug!
I’ve always wanted to visit the Polly Joke Poppies in Newquay. Ever since moving back to Cornwall 2 years ago, it’s been on my adventure bucket list. The wildflower fields bloom between May and June and I’ve been looking forward to it all year. I decided to take the dogs on a trip to Polly Joke to check out this agricultural phenomenon for ourselves. [Read more…]
I’m a huge fan of dog harnesses. They’re incredibly practical, especially for our outdoor lifestyle here in Cornwall and I would be lost without them! It’s taken me a while to find the right harness for us but through a lot of trial and error I think we’re there. Today I thought I’d share with you some of the adventure dog harnesses we’ve used, the reasons I bought them and whether they’ve stood the test of time!
DOGSCLOSURE: I purchased all of these harnesses myself. I purchased the majority of these harnesses new over the past year, however I also found some secondhand.
