With Spring just around the corner, what better way to spend a day than with your dog out in the open. Guided walkies at Upton Country Park is hosted by Dorset dog and is a great walk if you are looking for places your dog can have a good off-lead run.
On 19 March at 11 AM, Dorset Dogs will be hosting a guided walk around Upton Country Park, Poole’s premier attraction. This is a brilliant location for some real canine adventures.
There is plenty for your dog to explore including heaths, downs and wetlands. Look out for newly nesting birds who might not appreciate being disturbed by bounding pups.
Based in the South West, this fantastic organisation focuses on positive management for people with dogs and promoting responsible ownership. Dorset Dogs works closely with dog owners and land managers – including conservation and countryside organisations – to help bring positive change to the challenges of dog ownership.
We can all agree that dogs are truly wonderful creatures. To most, they are more than just pets…they are precious…they are family. Learning to be a responsible dog owner is more often than not over-looked.
Upton Country Park
Upton Country Park has over 130 acres of parkland, shoreline and formal estate gardens. Their park has plenty to offer for the whole family to enjoy. Apart from the breath-taking scenery, there is a delightful tea room and gift shop to enjoy. Dogs are welcome in the courtyard area of the tea room and on lead in the formal gardens.
Come join the fun.
Everyone is meeting under the big tree at the far end of the main car park. For those of you who use wheelchairs or require walking assistance, the group will venture along the good paths to start. After that the journey will lead into the woodland and around the shoreline path, back through the gardens by Upton House.
It’s true that dogs do wonders for people’s physical health and emotional well-being. Interaction with other dogs is just as important to your dog as is it is for their two-legged counterparts to meet new people.
