What we're about
Hello small dog owners!
In this group we connect with other owners of small dogs and organise off-lead social group walks together in local parks and through nearby countryside. We are based primarily in Bolton but some of our walks are in the general Lancashire and Greater Manchester areas. These meetups are ideal if you want your dog to socialise in a low pressure environment, or if you'd simply like a nice chat whilst you're out dog-walking. The walks tend to be easy, relaxed and casual, and we try to go at the speed of the slowest human/dog in the pack with breaks along the way. We may occasionally have some longer walks too.
The only requirements are that dogs must have had all their necessary vaccinations and be an appropriately small size. Owners are responsible for the behaviour and welfare of their dogs. If you're unsure of whether or not your dog would be a good fit for the group for any reason, please message me.
If you have attended one of our dog walks before and want to lead your own walk somewhere, just let me know and I'll give you the ability to post it on the site. It can be as simple as inviting people to join you on a walk that you're already going to do anyway, giving people a day or two's notice. Additionally, if you have any suggestions for good walks for the dogs, or any suggestions in general for walks you'd like to go on or other events/activities, I would love to hear from you.
