Take your dog for a walk on the water side

Posted on Thursday, 8th June 2017 - 6:31pm in Articles by Lezli

As we move in to summer, there's nothing so relaxing as a walk along a canal towpath with the dog.

Paula Boyden, deputy veterinary director at the Dogs Trust recommends canals as the perfect location for both you and your dog due to the peace, tranquillity and numerous scents your dog can explore. The Canal and River Trust have set up a special page for dog walkers where you can check out their walks, click here

If your dog can't resist leaping in the water, and we know a few labs who'd never get past the first lock on land, it's worth taking a look at dog harnesses with an easy-to-grab handle so you can heave Fido out when necessary. And avoid being yelled at by rookie narrowboat captains too!

MOTORWAY WALKS - The Book

With nearly 200 walks from the Driving with Dogs website, this handy little book is an ideal guide to the best dog-friendly pubs and dog walks within 5 miles of UK motorway exits.

Like the website walks, you'll also find information about campervan access, disabled facilities, kids' activities, safe parking places, sat-nav codes and written route directions too.

Walking the Dog: Motorway Walks for dogs and drivers is available from the RAC shop (link URL http://www.racshop.co.uk/rac-books.html) and all the usual online bookstores such as amazon.

If your local bookstore doesn't have a copy in stock, you can order by quoting the ISBN number: 978-1-845841-02-7
