Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

M23 The Curious Pig in the Parlour and safe dog walking fields, West Sussex

Some pub opening times and dog rules are still changing. Please check your chosen pub is able to welcome you before making plans.


A dog-friendly pub with good food and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There is no dog walk from the pub door, but we did find a dog park where you can book your dogs in for a 60-minute play session in a private 3-acre space. 


Just 7 miles from Gatwick Airport ideal for a place to wait if you're waiting for a plane to land.

We didn't find a good dog walk from the door here, but a local lady recommended the dog walking fields close by called Copthorn Canines.  Our two collies were glad of a rest and we didn't take them for a paid walk, but if you're short on time or have dogs with less than perfect recall this could be a lifesaver.  You need to book ahead using their online booking system so this does require some organisation. Each walk area has a selection of toys and activities for dogs as well as plenty of space. The site is divided into two separate dog walks so that you have a whole 3-acre walk just for your dog.  Call ahead to book: Copthorne Canines 07300 412 965 Please read their booking conditions before making payment.
