Clarification regarding why dogs are not permitted on LVRA walks

David Rhodes

Dear All, please see note below from our walk leader Bob. This is to clarify why dogs are not permitted on the LVRA walks as there have been a few enquiries about this;
“…..Regarding dogs on walks it is not the walk leaders choice it is Active Spaces (who are the overseeing body) policy. The policy is made with the judgment that some people are nervous of dogs and also Active Spaces insurance will not cover dog walkers or any damage the dogs may do to people or livestock which could mean the owner is faced with a substantial claim.
The above is policy and is made for the safety of all concerned”
