Find out about me, my owner and my favourite place for a walk in Dalby Forest, as well as great dog friendly places to eat and sleep near by.

Meg the dog from Dalby Forest

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  My owner and me

One of the first things you’ll notice about me are my great big ears. All the better to hear you with! I’m a lively, five-year-old Collie Cross, who goes on plenty of walks with my owner recreation ranger Cath.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Favourite treat

I love a good bit of cheese, you can’t beat it. And no need for any crackers either, I'll eat it just like that.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Best trick

Jumping – I’m the best at it. And I love it too.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Arch rival

I don’t have one! But I love to bark at imaginary squirrels in the trees, when the wind blows and moves the branches.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Favourite places for a walk

I love walking around the Adderstone Rigg Trail and running in Adderstone Field. It gets me nice and tired and makes me sleep better.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Water stops

I often stop for water just outside the visitor centre.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Other useful information

There are no dog waste bins on site, so Cath always picks up after me because I don't want my human friends to step in a suprise gift from me or my buddies. Visit Dalby Forest for more information about what's available on site.
