If you're travelling across the A66, a great place to stretch your legs and dog's paws is in the village of Dufton - an attractive village which sits on the Pennine Way.
I first joined DWD when I got my first ever dog Roger, a Jack Russell - Lhasa Apso Cross. We both loved a good walk and Roger particularly loved a good beach, as long as it comes with a ball!
Unfortunately Roger passed away in April 2020 so I went 18 months without a canine companion. However, I now have a little Chihuhaua Poodle called Bailey who I re-homed from a family member in November 2021. He's adorable and loves to explore but I can't let him off a lead yet as I don't have recall with him! The extendable lead has become our best friend on walks. He can roam to his paw's content, but can't run off!
I write a UK travel Blog and regularly write about walks and travels I did with Roger. Soon Bailey reviews will start making an appearance on here too!
