Please respect the countryside and follow the Countryside Code

 

Dogs

 

Many club members like to bring their dogs along, and provided they are well-behaved and kept under control this is not usually a problem.  Dogs may be excluded from CRoW Access Land (except on rights of way).  Please check for any restrictions before bringing your dog.

 

Please remember that even where there are no bird restrictions, your dog may disturb ground-nesting birds,and other wildlife as well as farm animals.  Dogs found worrying farm animals could be shot. The Countryside Code has some specific advice for dog walkers.

 

Please always clean up after your dog.
