It all began in May 2001. When nearly all the Foot and Mouth restrictions had been lifted, dogs were still required to be on leads in the New Forest. A small group of us got together, who cared passionately about retaining our traditional 'privilege' (never a legal right) of walking our dogs on the Forest freely, whilst keeping them fully under control. New Forest Dog Owners Group was born.
