Paws in the Vale Walks

Dog Banner 2

We know your four legged friend will be just as excited as you are to try out our Vale Trails.

To help you get the most from your walk we’ve put together a selection of trails (or sections of them) that we know you’ll both enjoy. We’ve picked routes with fewer stiles and minimal road walking on quiet lanes. We’ve taken care to avoid routes with an abundance of livestock but please be aware that sheep and cattle may be grazing near any of the routes. Please keep our local farmer’s happy and keep your dog on a lead around livestock at all times. Check out our recommended routes range from a half hour forest stroll to an exhilarating coastal hike so there’s something for everyone, whether you’re travelling on two legs or four.

Paws in The ValeWe want you and your dog to have a safe and happy walk so please follow the Countryside Dog Walking Code

1. Keep your dog on a lead around livestock, near cliff edges and where signage requires it.

2. Prevent your dog from approaching horse riders, cyclists or other people and their dogs uninvited.

3. Keep your dog on the paths or public right of way.

4. Never let your dog worry or chase wildlife or livestock.

5. Do not let yourself get between a cow and her calf. 
If you have a dog with you, the most important thing for your safety and the dog’s safety is to let go of the lead. 
The dog will be able to run quickly to safety.

6. Please make sure your dog’s worming programme is up to date. This will keep our crops, livestock and children safe.

7. Always pick up your dog’s waste and put it in any bin.
