If you're a dog owner and would like your dog to mix more with other dogs, if you live in or around the New Forest area and like exploring, and if you have some free time on Friday afternoons then this dog walking group is for you.
The walks will be for a duration of approx. 2 hours, covering between 5 - 6 miles at a good walking pace, and will be 'off-lead' as much as possible. It is also the intention to arrange for an optional pub/café stop at the end of the walks in order to refresh ourselves. All dogs are welcome as long as they can cope with other dogs and have good recall. Owners are responsible for their own dogs and dog walking etiquette is expected to be followed such as cleaning up after them on paths etc. and ensuring that they are no threat to other animals and people. Owners are also asked to refrain from any ball throwing as this can cause problems with the other dogs.
This group has a limited membership, consequently the membership list is reviewed on a regular basis so that inactive members are removed to allow space for new members. Please therefore only apply to join this group if you actually intend to participate. (So many people seem to join many different groups but never actually participate in any of the events).
In order to cover the 'Meetup' website fees, an annual charge of £5.00 p/p will need to be collected from all members.
