All you need to know about walking your dog on Forestry Commission Land: Walkies in the Woods focuses on the physical and mental health benefits of dog walking as part of the Active Woods campaign to promote the healthy living opportunities offered by woodlands.

Through the Walkies in the Woods promotion, Forestry Commission England, supported by the Kennel Club, wants to ensure that dogs and their owners experience healthy, responsible and above all enjoyable woodland visits.
