The Canine Trail | Nottingham Ale Trail

Take your furry four legged friends on their own unique trail to claim a Canine Trail pin badge.

How does it work?

The Canine Trail is a flexible trail designed for dog owners who’d like to sample some of Nottingham’s finest ale in the company of their faithful friend.

The trail works in the same way as every other trail, but people get to choose which venues to visit from the list. Select eight venues from the map that you wish to visit over the month and then collect stamps at each stop when you buy a cask ale. There’s even a limited-edition doggy bandana for the first 100 dogs to complete the trail and a special canine pin badge for well-behaved owners.

The above information has been gathered directly from the participating venues and is correct to the best of our knowledge. However, It's in Nottingham cannot guarantee entry to every venue with your dog and some venues may include their outdoor space as what makes them dog friendly. We would advise contacting the venue ahead of your visit if you are unsure or would like to find out more. Thank you for your understanding and have a great day out with your four-legged friend. 



Do I still get a pin badge if I complete the trail? 

Yes! Once you've got 8 stamps on your trail card, head to the Nottingham Tourism Centre to collect your limited edition Canine Trail Badge. Just remember the pin badge is for human use only. To avoid any accidents for your pooch we kindly request that pin badges aren't worn by dogs.


Can I collect stamps for the other trails at the same time?

Yes but please remember that you'll only receive one sticker per purchase. For example, if you're at a venue on the King John trail then you would need to purchase one drink for the Canine Trail card and a second for the King John Trail card.

We kindly request that you drink responsibly and consider the welfare of your dog at all times. If you have any questions about the Canine Trail please email us or contact us on social media. We're always happy to help!
