Hampshire is one of the most dog-friendly counties in the UK. With miles and miles of open countryside, ample walking routes and a stunning coastline, so the New Forest is a great place to bring your dog on a day out or for a holiday. If you are coming to Dogstival, why not make a weekend of it.
There are more than 140 miles of tracks and footpaths here in the New Forest that you can explore with your dog. Whether you fancy a walk in the woods, on the open heathland or perhaps a jaunt along the coast, there are many options available to you. According to the New Forest National Park Authority, there are an estimated 25,000 dog walks per day here in the New Forest!
To minimise disturbance to wildlife, livestock and other people, please keep your dogs close by you and visible at all times – if necessary use a lead. Pick up after your dog, especially around car parks, on paths and where people play or picnic, and take bagged waste home if there is no litter bin.
