Spring is fast approaching and across the south events and activities are being prepared for SCCAMP’s ‘Celebrating Dogs and the Countryside’ week. We’ll be adding details to this page very soon!

SCCAMP is an exciting partnership which has formed over the last year. Dorset Dogs, Devon Loves Dogs, Heathland Hounds, Forestry England, New Forest National Park, South Downs National Park and Bird Aware Solent have joined forces to work more closely on a number of dog related projects. This new working group is aptly named SCCAMP – the Southern Counties Canine Access Management Partnership.

Come and meet the Team at Canford Park SANG and pick up a free Doggy Goody Bag. We’ll be joined by Lin, from Firewise UK who will be raising awareness of our K9 Firewise Patrol and hopefully recruiting some four legged volunteers.

Get involved with our Leave Only Paw Prints litter pick from 10am – 3pm at Hengistbury Head. Be part of the Dorset Bucket Brigade litter pickers on this self-led event which coincides with the Great British Spring Clean. Buckets and pickers for collection from the courtyard outside the Visitor Centre. Our thanks to sponsors I-Mac Fire and Security.

It’s time for Dorset Dogs Bingo! Choose your card from the selection posted on our social media (Facebook and Instagram) at midday and tune in at 6pm when a special bingo caller will be at the ready! It’s just for fun but we’d love to see your dog’s joining in!

Wednesday 30 March

Love Dogs…Love Nature. Join Dog Trainer and Behaviourist, Natalie Light in a video created especially for SCCAMP. The SCCAMP partners love their dogs and we know dog walking is a great way to get out and explore – discover some top tips on how you and your dog can enjoy the great outdoors safely this summer, while also helping to protect our beautiful countryside and wildlife.

Then in the evening tune in to see a ‘dogs-eye’ view of the countryside as Bodhi enjoys adventuring on a wildlife friendly walk. Filmed on the Dorset Dogs ‘Dog-Cam’ join Bodhi as walks, sniffs, runs and wags his way through the great outdoors.
