The daily dog walk is in decline
I know, we can't believe it either but it's true. New research shows the average daily dog walk is over in less than 20 minutes, whilst 58% of British dog owners have admitted to not walking their dog as often or for as long as they should.
Join us in our campaign to encourage longer and more mindful dog walking across the UK, for happier, healthier dogs and owners!
take up the 6 week dog walk challenge
We want to help you re-discover the joy of walking, providing practical advice on how to reap the benefits of longer, more frequent, and more mindful dog walks. Over six weeks we will help gradually establish a new daily routine.
most of us really want to get out more with our dogs...
Walking our dogs makes us feel happier, helps us meet new people and encourages more talking time with family and friends. Through Forthglade’s The Great Dog Walk Challenge campaign, we want to help you re-discover the joy of walking.
