When you think about where you walk your dog would you walk there on your own or do you walk in places where you would only feel comfortable with or without your dog?

I like to get out and explore which means I go to some pretty remote places locally but as they are local to me I never worry about walking there.

Im like you Jo, I go miles into the forestry tracks and never see anyone at all, I walked two miles in and out on wednesday, it was fab, however friends tell me I should not do this alone, but I feel very safe, I also love being on the beach with just me and cassie, I love finding new trails that i havent used before.

I've just stopped walking by myself out in the wilds , for want of a better word,
Keith has been letting Dell walk where he wants to go a few times
and he takes him the long way round but always ends up at the park.
but all in all I go where I want with him as Keiths always with us.

I worry far too much and always walk quattro in public places. Would love to be more like you tough girls spinner smile but I do feel that Quattro misses out when I take him out on my own because of this. My friends think I'm made, they all say but you have a staff who's going to attack you....he'll lick someone to deaf before doing anything else

I loved walking with Ruby and Elsdon on the beach at Haverigg, could have just walked for miles and miles, we also did a bit of sand dune exploring but I wasn't comfortable with it as I couldn't get my bearings and I was worried that Elsdon would run off after some furry and I'd lose him.

I also like finding new walks and am not afraid to go anywhere different with them. I feel more comfortable walking Elsdon in strange places as he is bigger which is daft really as Ruby can give as good as he can if required.

I've just had a telling off for walking Enzo too far out on my own

I wanted to go somewhere Enzo could have a good run so I drove to a field. We did bump into a jogger who Enz barked at which is very unusual, so I think he sensed we shouldn't have been there lol

I tend to keep looking over my shoulder when I'm up hills or fields, I do get a bit freaked out, but I feel protected with Enzo, I wouldn't go there on my own.

I don't go somewhere I don't know as I am useless at directions and would get hopelessly lost. If I find a new spot I make sure I know where I am going first and which paths before I take the dogs.

I walk in the woods twice a day, usually at the same times each day, find it better as I know the people and dogs then.
