It is estimated that a dog accompanies at least one third of visitors to the countryside. 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.
