Walking your dog is a great way to exercise and explore the great outdoors. With miles of paths to explore at Grizedale, there’s no need to leave your four-legged friend behind next time you’re planning a day out.
We love dogs at Grizedale, but ask that all owners follow our Dog Code. Take these simple steps to make sure your dog is safe, well behaved and doesn't leave any little surprises for other forest visitors!
Your Forest Dog Code:
Control your dog:
Always ensure your dog is in sight and comes back when called.
Protect farm animals & wildlife:
Never let your dog approach or chase farm animals or wildlife.
Know where you can go:
We would prefer for your dog to be kept on a lead around the Visitor Centre. Please do not allow your dog onto the Adventure Play Area.
The trails may be wet and muddy at times.
Please use with caution, sensible footwear is recommended for all owners.
Keep your dog safe & healthy:
Regularly worm and vaccinate your dog and ensure a collar is worn with your contact details on.
Never let your pet approach cyclists, other people, dogs or horses uninvited.
Always bag and remove your dog’s waste, it helps us keep the forest clean.
