Forthglade Great Dog Walk Together

thank you to everyone who joined us

Thank you to everyone who braved the wet & windy weather to join us for an afternoon of fun at our very own Forthglade Great Dog Walk Together, on Saturday 24th November.

The walk took part at the very picturesque Baggy Point, on the South West Coast Path near Croyde in North Devon and was supported by our friends at the Great Dog Walk Together. Even though the weather wasn't quite what we'd hoped for, the walk was a great success & was very much enjoyed by everyone who came along.

We were very proud to support the launch of The Great Dog Walk Together initiative earlier this year and we couldn't wait to organise our very own walk here in Devon, and what better location than on the stunning 360-miles of beautiful coastline maintained by our friends at the South West Coast Path Association.

Some of our four-legged walkers were more excited by the puddles than others...

And our shorter-legged companions wrapped up warm for the occasion...

The Great Dog Walk Together initiative was set up this year by Elaine Brown, mum to Rupert, a rather adorable Westie. The aim of the project was to encourage dog walkers to join together in community dog walks, to promote health and wellbeing, whilst making new friends along the way. 

“I hope the initiative encourages more people to benefit from more social interaction through walking their canine companions. Dogs provide such an easy starting point for any conversation as you immediately have something in common with fellow dog walkers. Regular exercise and social interaction is so key to staying fit and well – both mentally and physically, and the great thing about dog walks is they’re totally free” Elaine Brown, founder of The Great Dog Walk Together

The walks can involve small groups meeting locally for a leisurely stroll, or longer walks through parks or surrounding countryside – everyone can set their own distance and pace. Why not think about setting up your own local walk - It’s simple to do, simply click here for more information on how you can get involved.
