Dog Walkers – Take the Lead for National Park

Cartoon image of dogThe National Park Authority is seeking responses to a survey on dog walking behaviour from people who walk dogs in the South Downs National Park including dog owners, as well as those who walk dogs for others, such as dog walking professionals.

This survey is a follow up to one undertaken in 2018 and will help assess how dog walking behaviours have changed over the lifetime of the campaign.

It is part of a campaign called Take the Lead to encourage responsible dog walking and reduce the negative impact of certain dog walking behaviours on heathland and other habitats.
