Some walks at Aussie Dog Care.

At Aussie Dog Care when walking home boarding clients and dog walking clients I like to stick to local walks. Here I am sharing with you some lovely walks around my area which dogs enjoy as well as me!

At Etherow Park I like to park in Compstall and walk to the weir , through Ernocroft wood and back to the Café ( which serves lovely coffee and cakes ) . However you can turn this walk into a much longer and tiring ( for me and the dogs) route by walking past the weir cottages on your right , you can walk up to Werneth Low Park from here but also around the back of Etherow Country Park. Lots of streams are here for doggies to paddle in and some great picnic spots!

I can reach Etherow Country Park by foot which is why I am quite lucky as the dogs all enjoy the walk to and from the Park especially when the dogs need that extra bit of a walk!

Werneth Low Country Park  is another fantastic place to go with your dogs it has the Tameside Trial and the much longer Trans Pennine Trail passing through it! I am very lucky to be able to walk to Werneth Low Country Park from my house and the dogs have a fantastic time!

“The country park extends for 80 hectares (200 acres) across the Northern and Western slopes of Werneth Low. Only 9.5 miles from the city centre of Manchester, the area is both a haven for wildlife and an area where visitors can find peace and relaxation. The park’s location provides panoramic views across Manchester and beyond to Liverpool. The dark blue silhouette of the Welsh mountains can often be seen on clear days, as can the Pennine hills close by.”

We also love walks around Marple Canal and Brabyns Park! Brabyns Park is fantastic for socializing your dogs and allowing them that wind down off the lead … I know my clients enjoy it !

When the sun is out Brabyns can make for a fantastic picnic spot! But you will have to keep the dogs away from the lovely food and it also gets very busy around midday in summer months!

Chadkirk Chapel and Country estate is a beautiful scenic place to take any member of the family. It is a stones throw away from Romiley Village and a mere 15 minute walk from my home I love having this area of Biologic Importance and beauty so close to home. Many dogs have enjoyed the walks around the estate and surrounding walks toward the garden centre.

“Chadkirk Country Estate is a haven for wildlife, helped by sympathetic and environmentally friendly ways of maintaining the various habitats.

The meadows, pastures, woodland fringes and the gardens all provide valuable food and shelter to a wide variety of species including birds, invertebrates and small mammals.

Kirk Wood and Little Wood are both SBIs (Sites of Biological Importance) and the entire Estate has been designated as a LNR (Local Nature Reserve).” From – http://www.stockport.gov.uk/
