Duston Dog Walkers was started three years ago for local dog walkers to meet for walks together socialising both humans and canines. We now have members from Milton Keynes to Rugby and across Northamptonshire. The group walks on average twice a week in various locations. We welcome all dogs for both on & off lead walks and encourage members to suggest new walks for everyone to enjoy. In 2015 Duston Dog walkers changed its name to County Canine Walkers to better reflect the scope of this group.
If you want to join our friendly group and no longer walk alone then please do join us on a walk soon!
County Canine Walkers activities are entirely at the risk of the participant. Neither County Canine Walkers its Organisers or Hosts accept any responsibilities, whatsoever, for any injuries or losses sustained. Handlers and/or owners remain responsible for their dogs at all times and are advised to ensure they have adequate pet or household insurance cover for liability in the unlikely event of damage or injury caused by their dog to property or to a third party.
Please read and agree to the guidelines below before attending your first walk.
County Canine Walkers is a social group for the enjoyment of both owners and dogs.
We are not dog trainers or behaviourists, so if your dog has major issues please address these before joining us. All walks leave on time, if you are late and do not inform a host you will be logged as a no-show.
1. Introduce yourself to the walk host on meeting up and follow their advice on all walks. 'Off lead' walks always start together on lead to settle the dogs. The host is your first point of contact for any concerns you have on the walk.
2. Treat other walkers, cyclists, children & the general public with courtesy by having your dog under close control or on lead when necessary or advised by your host.
3. Be responsible for your own dog and do not rely on others to manage your dog on a walk.
4. If your dog is high energy and becomes over excited at any time please respect other walkers and address the issue by putting your dog on lead or taking time out. This includes young dogs that pester other dogs or those involved in rough play.
5. If your dog does not recall effectively, then it is advisable to keep it on lead. If your dog does not recall and worries livestock it may be shot by the landowner.
6. If your dog has the potential to bite use a suitable, secure muzzle both on and off lead. When a host or member sees a dog reacting aggressively or bullying another dog, you will be asked to put your dog on lead.
7. It is advisable to always bring water for your dog to drink.
8. Do not feed dog treats without the permission of owners. We have some dogs under strict diets due to intolerance or allergies.
9. Extendable dog leads and long lines are not permitted. No sticks or balls are permitted. Gun Dog Dummies and floating toys are allowed at the hosts discretion.
10. If you are a persistent ‘No Show’, you may be contacted by an organiser and potentially removed from the group membership
11. Photos taken during walks, maybe posted on social media web sites, as well as the CCW meetup site. If you do not wish your photo to be taken, or published on a social media web site, then please make it known to the photographer at the time. Any objections to photos which are published after the walk CCW cannot be held accountable for.
12. Please follow these guidelines for a safe & happy walk.
