Take the Lead: Canine Confessions 

We ask for the support of dog owners in keeping your pets under close control around livestock. If you are unsure as to whether your dog will chase livestock then please keep them on a lead. We recommend following the guidance in this series of useful videos, called Canine Confessions, produced by the South Downs National Park.
