Whilst it’s great to watch your dogs running around and burning some energy, pay attention to your surrounding and pop them on a lead to reduce the chance of them disturbing any wildlife.
Make sure to pick up after your pup to keep the areas clean and tidy. Read any signs you pass and take extra care on paths near cliffs or steep drops.
