Professional Dog Walkers Charter in the New Forest

The New Forest National Park has become one of the first to introduce a Professional Dog Walkers Charter, it builds upon the Dog Walking Code to reflect the additional responsibility in which professional dog walkers hold.

All professional dog walkers that walk in the New Forest National Park are encouraged to abide by the best practice standards set out in the charter, giving owners peace of mind.

The standards include; walking a maximum of six dogs at a time, only parking in the designated car parks, carrying a canine first aid kit, ensuring the dogs are wearing ID tags for the dog walker as well as the dog’s owners, picking up and appropriately disposing of any dog poo and many more.
