Dog Policy

Enjoy a visit to Bents with your four legged friend.

Here at Bents, we extend a warm welcome to well-behaved dogs in various areas:

The Pet Place & Cafe
Undercover Plant Area
Outdoor Spaces
Outside Dining Areas*
Outside Tapas
Winter Food Market
Lakeside Stroll
Covered Walkway

You’ll find fresh water stations throughout these areas and, for something a little more satisfying, you can dine together at The Pet Café which has a selection of delicious treats for both human and hounds!

So, whether it’s a Pupcake or a Cupcake, sniffing out a new toy or browsing our homegrown plant collection, there’s a reason for you both to enjoy a trip to Bents.

We sincerely appreciate owners taking the time to clean up after their dogs, contributing to the cleanliness and hygiene. Your cooperation goes a long way in ensuring a delightful experience for all visitors, both human and furry!

*Cleaning facilities are available throughout the store
(*Not at our Undercover Beach or Outside children’s Adventure Play Area.)
For those looking for a little exercise on your visit, the 5K Windy Bank Wood trail, located to the rear of our Centre, provides the perfect place to let them off the lead. And if your furry friend finds a muddy patch (which with some dogs is inevitable!) you’ll find a cleaning station located outside The Pet Place where you can rinse them off ready for the car.
