Dorsetdog - Dog walking groups


Please scroll down the page to see contact details of groups who have provided contact details so far 

Please email details of your dog walking group to dorsetdog.info@gmail.com

If you would like to join or start a group in your local area, then please email details of where you are and this will be advertised on Dorsetdog free of charge. Your email address can be displayed for like minded people to contact you.

There are some walking groups who allow dogs to accompany the group. One could try the local University of the Third Age (U3A) group, or the local area magazine. Alternatively, one could place a card in the local supermarket or library to find like minded people.

 
Please send me any contact details or meeting place of any dog walking groups that you become aware of.

  

When going for your walk, please ensure that you take your dog’s following items with you
  • Poo bags, no responsible dog owner should ever leave home without them as you never know when they might need to go!

  • Fixed lead

  • Always pick up after your dog - always tie the bag so that the smell doesn't get out - and always put it in a binWater bowl and water
  
 

The sides of these soft drinking bowls fold down for small dogs, and fold to fit into your pocket. The wide mouthed 330ml drink bottle is ideal for easily pouring water back in to after the dog has finished drinking.
The whole lot fits easily in to a jacket pocket and is ideal for taking on hot days.
