What is the Virtual Great British Dog Walk?

We’ve sadly had to ‘paws’ (see what we did there?) our incredibly popular series of Great British Dog Walks due to the Coronavirus pandemic. But the Great British Dog Walk continues… virtually!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose a walking route and distance that suits you – pretty country lanes, autumnal woodland, wide open spaces, whatever you like
  2. Choose your walking buddies – four-legged friends, Covid-secure bubbles, or even a solo challenge - whichever you choose, ensure you follow any local restrictions

  3. Pick a date between Saturday 24 October and Sunday 8 November (you can walk as many days as you like between those dates too)

When you sign up you will receive...

A free Great British Dog Walker bandana for your dog, a downloadable walker certificate, a free activity pack (available for both children and adults) and an entry into our prize draw for your chance to win a fabulous pack of Hearing Dogs goodies.

When you walk, you help people like Amelia…

Before I had Scamp, I had given up. I felt lonely, scared, isolated and depressed. I was withdrawn, had no confidence, no friends and no social life. Scamp makes me smile and gives me the confidence to meet people and talk to them.
– Amelia and Scamp 

 

Since lockdown began we’ve seen a record number of applications for a hearing dog.

Please take part in the Virtual Great British Dog Walk and help more deaf people like Amelia to leave loneliness behind.
