Our social dog walking service pairs two people with similar interests and provides them with an opportunity to bond over a dog walk and build new friendships.

People attending our social dog walking service are supported to socialise and take turns in walking a dog through the park, down the canal or to and from a local cafe. Transport can be provided if required.

People are welcome to use our social dog walking service to make new friends, or attend with somebody they already know.


You can register for any of our supported services by completing our registration form.
