A guide to walking your dog in the countryside

We want everyone to enjoy the countryside with their dogs, but there are some important guidelines to follow in order to keep you, your dog, livestock and wildlife safe. There are times of the year when sheep, cattle and other rare wildlife are particularly at risk. We ask that you keep your dog on a short lead wherever you see these signs.
