Dog Walks Near Me
Graded walks with no stiles. Perfect for dogs of all ages!
Hello and Welcome to Dog Walks Near Me
Dogs are amazing creatures that provide the perfect excuse to get out and explore the countryside. However, the best walks can be hard to find when you don’t know the area. The purpose of this site is to provide a repository of enjoyable countryside dog walks at various locations within the UK. Each walk contains information about parking, directions and detailed guides (including maps) of the walks themselves.
Each walk has been carefully selected to ensure that they are suitable for both you and your furry companion. We have made an effort to avoid stiles. Where stiles do exist, they are specifically designed with lift gates for dogs.
All walks are graded: Easy, Moderate or Challenging depending on the terrain and elevation. Walks take between one and three hours, depending on you and your dog’s pace. It is up to you to decide which walks are most appropriate for both you and your dog, but remember to factor in the dog’s breed, age and fitness when selecting your walks. Low energy dog breeds such as: Bulldogs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels can only do short walks, whereas Springer Spaniels are difficult to tire out. It is recommended that you research your dog breed if you are unsure.
Some of the walks include bridleways, so you may encounter both horses and cyclists. Other walks may encounter livestock, ground nesting birds, and rivers. Remember that it is your responsibility to control your dog and keeping both them and others from harm.
After walking your dog in the countryside, it is always wise to check for ticks. Ticks can carry a number of diseases that can infect both humans and animals. Any ticks present on your dog, should be removed as soon as possible using a tick removal tool. It is sensible to keep the ticks in a small container or sandwich bag; should your dog become unwell, presenting the offending ticks to your vet can help with a diagnosis.
Finally, please be prepared to clean up after you dog, no one wants to step in it! Some areas operate a stick and flick policy (you just have to “flick” the poop off the path), other areas require you to bag and bin. Please keep the bag until you find a suitable bin.
