South Downs - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

South Downs - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

by: Tracey Gower
With its ancient woodland, river valleys and rolling hillsides, the South Downs, spanning the southern coastal counties of Hampshire and Sussex, is a dog walker's delight.

This collection of 20 tried-and-tested circular walks have been written specifically for dogs and their owners, allowing a maximum off-lead time. These routes, covering the west and central part of the South Downs National Park, will allow you to explore somewhere new, safe in the knowledge that the surroundings will be suitable for your dog.

Explore the area's extensive footpaths and tracks including parts of the famous Pilgrims' Way, Wayfarer's Walk and the Serpent Trail, and take in the glorious views from Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve and Black Down, the area's highest point. Your dog will also love the freedom of the woodland around Flexham Park, Chapel Common and Eartham Wood.

All the walks include details of how to get to the start; distance and terrain, dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog-friendly refreshment stops, numbered route directions accompanied by clear coloured sketch maps, points of interest along the way and information about the nearest veterinary practice. The book is copiously illustrated with colour photographs. Tracey Gower is a dog trainer and behaviourist. She lives in West Sussex in the South Downs.
