The Top 21 Dog Walks list is back, and open for nominations.
Some studies suggest that the life of an overweight dog is shortened by at least two years. In human terms, this would mean a life expectancy shortfall of 15 years. However, by simply choosing the correct diet and taking your pooch for twice-a-day walkies you can help reduce canine obesity and the risk of related conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, breathing difficulties and diabetes.
Tom Wright, chief executive of national tourism agency, VisitBritain says:
“Pet friendly holidays are increasingly in demand by the British public and are an ideal way to explore the fantastic rural landscapes that we are famous for. We hope that by finding the UK’s 21 top dog walks, it will inspire people to visit a new destination they haven’t explored before. Whether it’s woodland, beach, park, river or canal side, we want to know about it!”
