Dorset 4050 Walkers
Walking with Dogs policy
We have been considering and debating the question of walking with dogs in relation to our group for some time now, it has caused much debate and consultation; We are not anti-dog but experience has taught us to be careful with dogs (even well trained ones) when walking through the countryside.
Most of our walks cross farm land, which, means that we frequently encounter farm animals and whilst a dog may be well behaved (trained) there is no knowing how livestock will react/ behave towards it.
Also, many of our walks are close to cliff edges (in places). Both of the above situations have presented risks to and caused concern amoungst our members.
We also expect dog owners to note the following;
In light of the above the Dorset 4050 Walkers (general policy on this matter), is to restrict dogs on its walks to Assistance Dogs only.
