Take the Lead - Dog Walking Competition

Take the Lead

Take the Lead

Going for a walk is something many of us take for granted. Research we did in October on access and path use, showed us that almost 24% of participants go out walking to walk their dog. With almost 1/3 of people in Wales owning dogs, Ramblers Cymru recognise the importance of promoting responsible dog walking whilst continuing our work to ensure everyone in Wales can enjoy the outdoors. 

To encourage more dog walkers to get involved with our work, Ramblers Cymru is exploring ways in which we can improve access that can benefit those with dogs. We recently met with a specialist group in North Wales that already run dog walks to talk about this.

See details of our Social Media Competition below for a chance to win some Ramblers Cymru goodies!

The Dog Walking Code

It's important for those who head out with their four-legged companions, to do so responsibly. There are people, and other dogs, who may not be happy with your furry friend coming to say hello whilst outdoors. The Dog Walking Code is a simple, ten-point guide which aims to ensure safe and happy walks with your dog, and to avoid causing problems for others. Visit Natural Resources Wales website to learn more about the code and how you help make enjoying the outdoors a great experience for everyone and win some Ramblers Cymru goodies.

Social Media Competition

Throughout February, we're running a competition on social media to give you a chance to win some Ramblers Cymru goodies! We're asking you to share your favourite photos of your four-legged friend out on a walk. We’ll be sharing top tips and encouraging dog walkers to familiarise themselves with the Countryside Code for dogs.

To participate in this competition, users must be following Ramblers Cymru on the platform they share an image of their dog out walking (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter), and use the hashtag #TakeTheLead or #ArDennyn.
