Find out about me, my owner and my favourite place for a walk in Grizedale Forest, as well as great dog friendly places to eat and sleep near by.
My owner and me
I may have a stumpy tail like many Border Terriers, but I really don’t mind. I wag it anyway when I feel like it. I am looked after by administrative officer Dawn, who is great.
Skittles – I love tasting the rainbow.
When I want a biscuit I have conditioned my owners to give me one when I jump around on my back legs - like a proper circus dog and everything. I know, I’m impressed myself.
I don’t really have an arch rival. I love everyone and everything, especially my best friend, a one-year-old German Wired Haired Pointer, who I'm teaching how to wrestle. We chase each other for hours - it’s a big job, but somebody’s got to do it and look after him as he’s only little and needs to be shown what to do. After all that, I also love curling up for a nap, preferably on some clean washing because it smells nice.
Favourite places for a walk
I love being in the forest and investigating all the interesting smells, of which there are many. My favourite walk is the Grizedale Tarn Trail. It’s the best for smells.
There are water bowls conveniently located in the courtyard by the cafe and at the car park toilet block.
Other useful information
I'm told leads, tethers, collars and other accessories are available from the Rheged@Grizedale shop. There are also dog trailers available for hire from Grizedale Mountain Bikes to give tired little doggies a rest. Visit Grizedale Forest for more information about what's available on site.
