Walking your dog responsibly

The Commons are a great place for exercise and that's good for you and your dog. You are welcome, as are all our visitors, but remember you must be able to control your dog so as not to alarm other people, worry livestock or disturb wildlife.

If your dog is off the lead you must be able to see where it is and it should return to you on your command. If both points are true you are in control of your dog and you are a responsible owner.

Please read notices on gateways. Just because you can't see livestock it doesn't mean they're not there.

  • If you're not sure how your dog will behave around other animals (sheep, deer and other dogs) please put it on a lead.
  • Know where your dog is at all times.
  • No one wants an animal to suffer, so keep in control of your dog. If the worst happens, tell us at once, so we can deal with the situation.
