Welcome to our July members.....

Finn 2111

Finn

Finn is a 3 year old Working Cocker Spaniel from Dorchester who enjoys walks in Puddletown Forest and Ringstead Beach.

During the spring & summer months we're asked by local Rangers to inform people about where they need to be aware of birds nesting on the grounds on heaths or other specialised habitats - at this time of year dogs need to stay on the paths with us in those areas.

Check out the 'out & about' pages to find off-lead places to go, all-year round dog-friendly beaches and more information about nature reserves and their wildlife too!
