Information for Dog Owners

General guidance

BGA dog warning

  • Dogs are welcome in most areas of the Park, provided that they are kept under close control.

  • Dogs are not permitted in the Nature Reserve in order to prevent disturbance to the wildlife in this area.

  • Please keep your dog under close control at all times - keep them away from other visitors and the cattle in the river meadows.

  • Please clean up after your dog to allow everyone to enjoy the Park. There are many dog bins around the Park and bags are available from the Visitors' Centre. Rangers are empowered to take action against owners who allows their dogs to foul the Park.

  • Dog bags are provided free of charge and are located at all the dog bin stations around the Park - there are not many places you can visit that provide such a good incentive.
