Walking a dog with the Romsey Group 

Well behaved dogs are welcome on many walks but it is up to the individual leader to allow dogs on their walks. Walks where dogs are not allowed are marked 'Assistance dogs only'. Should you wish to bring a dog on a walk please contact the leader beforehand. 

Please bear in mind:  

  • Dogs must be kept on a short lead and under close control. 

  • Dogs must be able to negotiate stiles and other obstacles without the aid of other walkers. 

  • Please download see The Dog Walking Code.

In our area wild life that carry tick are quite abundant, so we recommend you regularly check for ticks on your clothes and skin, and on children and pets after being outdoors.
