Information for dog owners
Dogs are welcome on the public footpath around the reserve. Please keep to the designated rights of way on the Grassland trail only. Reedbed trail and the path to East Hide are not public footpaths, so sorry, no dogs are permitted here other than assistance dogs.
Please keep your dog on a lead and under close, effective control at all times, due to the sensitive wildlife and habitats and livestock here. We know that the countryside is a dog walking paradise. It’s important to remember the special surroundings here are wonderful havens for rare wildlife so we’ve created designated dog-friendly routes for you and your pooch to enjoy. Even if dogs are very well behaved, wildlife and livestock can easily become startled by a loose dog they perceive as a predator.
Disturbing wildlife does more than simply causing it to move away; it uses up their energy, decreasing their chance of survival regardless of season. Thank you for protecting the special wildlife here by keeping your dog on a lead and under close, effective control.
- Reedbed trail and parts of the Wash trail are not public rights of way, so sorry, no dogs are permitted on here other than assistance dogs.
- Dogs are welcome on the grassland trail.
- Dog water bowls and shaded tie-up area are available at the front of the visitor centre.
- Sorry, dogs aren’t permitted in the visitor centre, shop or café other than assistance dogs.
- Dogs die in hot cars, please do not leave your dog in the car when visiting us.
