Pawfect Behaviour at arc

At arc, we are proud to welcome your doggy best friends to shop with you!

The ‘Dog-Friendly Bury St Edmunds’ project launched in Bury St Edmunds in 2018 and, throughout the years, more and more shops in arc have declared themselves dog friendly.


We want to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience here at arc Shopping Centre and politely ask all dog owners to read and abide by the following pawfect behaviour guidelines:

  • Please keep your dog on a lead at all times. Extendable leads should be kept short to avoid tripping hazards.
  • Please remember that it is your responsibility to clean up after your dog. Sadly, the dog poop fairy does not exist!
  • Your dog should not be left unattended or unsupervised under any circumstances.
  • We understand that many dogs will be excited to shop with you, however please ensure that they do not jump up on fellow shoppers and please keep barking to a minimum.
  • Look out for the paw print logos in our shop windows to find out which stores are dog-friendly. You can view them HERE.
