Dog Walking Safety Tips

Before you start, make sure you have the right lead for your size of dog!

  1. Make sure the route you plan to take is suitable for your dog. Do they allow dogs? Do they have to be on a lead?  Is there anything that might unsettle your dog?
  2. Always find out what the laws are when walking your dog off the lead.
  3. ALWAYS take a poop bag with you!
  4. Dogs need water when walking. To make sure they drink safely, take a water bottle with you.
  5. All dogs must have an identification disc. Is yours up to date?
  6. Think of your dog’s paws. Is the ground suitable for them?  Remember – they don’t wear boots!
  7. Check your dog’s lead is not worn out before you go. Just give it a quick tug before you set off.
  8. Always make sure your dog’s collar fits properly.

Most of all, enjoy your walks.  You will both benefit!
