As dog owners, walking is something we’re all good at. Whether it’s a quick stroll around the block or down the garden, or a longer walk through forests and fields, having a dog is the perfect excuse to enjoy the great outdoors.

Not only is regular walking good for physical fitness and general health and wellbeing, it feeds into a dog’s love of adventure and curiosity. As importantly, walking helps strengthen the bond between human and animal as we're getting to explore side-by-side, come rain or shine, and experiencing life together.

Here you can find our top suggestions for popular dog walks in the UK, from the New Forest to Lancashire and Somerset.
