Dog enjoying a forest walkDogs are welcome in all areas of Cannock Chase Forest except the Play Area and food service area of Birches Valley Café. We have water bowls located on benches outside the Café for your dog to have a drink.

Be our Top Dog and follow our Dog Code.

Staying Safe

Whether riding your bike or going for a walk, please make sure your dog is always under control and they will come back to you when called.

Please don’t allow your dog to chase wildlife, between March and July is especially important because this is the deer and bird breeding season, it can be great fun but it can cause serious injuries.

Walking   

For a short walk we have the 1 mile Lady Hill Trail. For a longer walk why not go along the Fairoak Trail, there is a pool which dogs can have a swim but please keep dogs out of the two main fishing pools as they disturb the Fish and Wildlife in them.

Clean up after your dog

Always bag and remove your dog’s waste, it helps us keep the forest clean.

Dog Activity Challenge

This exciting challenge is a great way to keep you and you dog fit and healthy with lots of fun! The trail is located on the Concert field and you can find it from Birches Valley Forest Centre by following the signs for the Lady Hill Trail.

Try your dog’s ability at activities such as fetching, weaving and jumping!
