Group Walk: Orwell Country Park
Holiday Dogs Group Walks are designed to give dogs and owners a chance to meet and greet, and to basically go for a group walk together. It’s all completely free, no need to register, just turn up (with a dog if you have one) and is open to any age or ability. Walks are at various locations around Suffolk and usually lasts around 1 hour to 1 hour 30 mins.
Another enjoyable event was had by all at Orwell Country Park on Sunday 12th June.
Lots of keen and excited dogs gathered around with their owners, getting to know each other in great detail – sniffing around each other’s hind quarters (that’s the dogs of course!) before going for a relaxing stroll through the woods.
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning! The weather was perfect for walking and the atmosphere had a great feel to it, the sound of voices from our chatting owners, not to mention the laughter as our host Mary-Ann was almost pulled into the river by a ‘holiday dog’ and of course the sound of the doggies feet as they ran through wet sand!
That’s what our group walks are all about, it’s a great opportunity to walk and talk, and to let our doggies roam around with each other – it’s always nicer if you have a friend to share an interesting sniff or two, and to compete with marking territories here and there with!
