Orkney is a wonderful place for dogs to explore or to go horse riding and if you bring your four legged friend to Orkney you need to know where the nearest veterinarian services are.
It is good to know that we can share the wonderful wide open spaces and sandy beaches with our pets on Orkney but sometimes it may not be possible to keep your pet at your chosen accommodation or you may wish to have a day of sightseeing where it would not be suitable to take animals.
There are kennels on Orkney who are happy to look after your pet overnight or for longer stays during your visit to the islands.
Remember the usual rules apply; make sure you clean up after your pet, do not let them off the lead near farm animals and be aware that on Orkney, you are never far from water which may be dangerous for your pet.
We have listed some useful vets, kennels and cattery details for our fluffy visitors too.
