Prior to the WAGS Club launch, a small group of us met regularly to try out various walks. Our mission was to find walks that were both interesting for people and suitable for dogs. Ali and Tracy did most of the reconnaissance for these walks, while the hot and cold food was organised by Rose and Tracy. We certainly had a good time and a lot of laughs on these exploratory expeditions, and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed it. [ See the photos ]
