The Dog Walking Code

Dog owners should handle encounters with other people and animals by following these guidelines:

  1. Prevent your dog from approaching horse riders, cyclists, or other people and their dogs uninvited. ​
  2. Keep your dog with you on paths or access land and don’t let it stray into crops including fields of grass, fruit, and vegetables. ​
  3. Find the safest route around animals, giving them plenty of space and using paths or access land where possible. ​
  4. Exit the area calmly and quickly if threatened, releasing your dog to make it easier for you both to reach safety. ​

These guidelines ensure the safety and comfort of both the dog owner and others they encounter during walks. ​
