There is lots to do at Chatham Dock Yard i.e. three ships to climb on. A lifeboat shed 'A Call The Midwife Tour' but be sure to book. Lots more attractions as well as steam engines running along short track distances.

This is one of the better historic attractions I have visited and will be going back. Buy a ticket for the day and you get a pass for the year so can visit as often as you want.

Parking was indoors in one of the warehouses but I am sure clearance is good. If not I am sure it's ok to park outside

Yes you can bring your dog and I am sure it would be very welcome but having your dog would inhibit your day as you would be limited. I would weigh up the pros and cons.
