Bark Out

Walking holidays for you and the dog

Are you planning a holiday for you and the dog? With fantastic walks, dog-friendly pubs and dog-friendly accommodation too? Explore by Paw dog walking weekends and breaks could well tick all the boxes!

Explore by Paw is a well-established dog walking group, with loads of experience of pack dog walks and the little details that make a walk just pawfect.

The walking routes are tailor-made for dog walkers, and so you'll find an absolute minimum of stiles, livestock and road-walking. Each walk is led by an experienced walk leader (and their dog) who'll be able to point out interesting things and places along the route, as well as navigating you safely around the walk.

Each walk is around 5-8 miles, and designed to give your dog exactly what he needs. So sniffing, swimming and socialising is very much the order of the day.

Longer walks have a half-way break for lunch, in characterful pubs with great food and where dogs are welcome.

Explore by Paw dog walking breaks are really flexible. So you can choose the kind of accommodation that fits your budget and lifestyle, a list of dog-friendly B&Bs, cottages and campsites is provided for you to help out. And because Explore by Paw is a social community of dog-walkers, not a commercial business, you can 'meet' other dog-walkers online before your dog-walking break and even fix up cottage shares and car-shares to help keep the costs down.

Explore by Paw dog walking holidays for 2016 include mid-week breaks and weekends in the Derbyshire White Peak, Dartmoor, the Cotswolds, Shakespeare Country (Warwickshire) and a seaside adventure in Wales. Taster dog walking days in the Chilterns and Warwickshire give you a chance to meet up with other dog-walkers and see how your dog gets on in a group before going for a 3-day break.
