Frolic around with your furry friend on a field, play fetch with a stick on the sand and enjoy a delicious meal at a dog-friendly restaurant. Treat yourself and your animal friends to a relaxing break. The route starts from Huittinen and runs via Harjavalta, Pori, Merikarvia and Pomarkku to Jämijärvi.
Jämijärvi is a great place for those looking to do dog-related activities. Book a stone dust field for a training session or stop by the Markunlahti dog park, where your four-legged friend can enjoy frolicking in the grass and a swim afterwards.
Dogs love the wild outdoors. Explore nature with your pet or train your dog on pheasants and homing pigeons in Kynäsjoki in Pomarkku. In Harjavalta, you can check out the activities of the local working dog and companion dog association. Speed through an agility course or work on your dog's obedience skills.
The warm sands and the waves at Yyteri in Pori are there for dogs to enjoy too. There is a strand of beach stretching almost for half a kilometre between Mäntyluoto and Karhuluoto that is reserved for dog walking. Let your doggy off the lead and hit the waves – it's fun for the whole family! After the swim, it's time to grab a bite. Take your furry friend to Café-konditoria Fossette, Panimoravintola Beer Hunters or Tassucat.
Take your dog to Merikarvia where you can breathe in the breeze from the open sea. Go hunting, fishing or swimming, explore the fascinating beachfront and stay the night at Viikilän Huvila or one of Niittyniemi's holiday cottages.
Is your animal friend in need of a massage or stretching? Tuorin Ratsutila is a horse farm in Huittinen where you can have your horse or dog see an animal physiotherapist. While your pet is being treated, you can go horseback riding!
