New Forest Dog On The Forest Off The Lead

About New Forest Dog

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.
