Celebrate Love Your Pet Day with a Special Walk

Love Your Pet Day is celebrated every year on 20 February. It’s easy to get caught up in all life throws at us…working, commuting, school runs, visiting relatives, housework and gardening. Sometimes our pets get a little lonely when we are busy doing other things in our lives. So Love Your Pet Day is one day when we are reminded to spend more quality time with our furry friends. And if that furry friend is a dog, then a special walk might be just the ticket.


Bobbie EmbankmentThere are very few dogs that don’t love a walkies. The great outdoors may be beautiful to us with all the tranquil sights and sounds, but imagine it from a canine point of view where the sights and sounds are enhanced further with a myriad of interesting smells. Popular woodlands and parks are teeming with the scents of the regular doggie visitors…fascinating in every way. Or go off the beaten track and there are more exotic smells to discover. The regular path of a fox or badger, the site that was used by a bird of prey to devour its lunch or the patch used by a deer as its grassy bed last night. All so tantalising!

So why not plan a lovely walk with your canine pal to celebrate this special day? iFootpath has hundreds of options to choose from. Be sure to read all the access notes at the start of the guide which give you all the information you need to work out if the route is suitable for you and your hound. If you need to avoid stiles (no-one wants to lift a Rottweiler over a fence!) or avoid sheep/cattle (some terriers find them just too exciting) or avoid the crowds (some nervous doggies prefer to be in quieter areas) then we have all the information you will need to select the perfect outing. And why not make the outing even more special to celebrate Love Your Pet Day. Play hide and seek in the trees with a favourite toy, find a bench and enjoy a little picnic together, teach your dog a new trick and don’t forget to have a special cuddle on the sofa once you get home.

Happy Love Your Pet Day everyone.

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
