Hi I regularly walk my dog around the woods 4 - 5 times a week most of the time with no problem with other dogs except on a couple of occasions with a professional dog walker that has 5 - 6 dogs off the lead and recently these have attacked my dog, OK as I carry a staff I could fend them off my dog but if ever this pack decide to attack a younger person I doubt if the dog carer could control the pack, just wanted to make you aware, the dog walker is a company called Potter Paws, Aylesbury also pretty sure there is a limit now on the amount these walkers are allowed to be in control of.

I was looking for the easy trail but couldn't find the start of it . Help please

The easy access trail starts from the first small car park you come to in Wendover Woods. If you are at the main car park, head to the Toilet block, past it and turn left. Carry on this path to the end, where you will meet the small car park. The trail starts along the back edge of the car park.

Are dogs allowed off leads in all areas? I was at Burnham Beeches today and it was really difficult to find areas where did were allowed off lead. Thanks!

Yes, dog are welcome throughout the woods as long as they are under close control. By this we mean you are able to recall your dog and it is within your sight at all times. We ask that dogs are kept out of the Children's Play Area, and that owners consider putting their dogs on leads around the Café.
