Yes, in your arms :D She would get lots of attention which is great. Torsten came to his first schnauzer walk to say hello the day after he came home!

A date to put on the calender depending on weather will give serious consideration to the walk thanks.

Thanks, Kate, I found it via the link you sent me and we went to try it out today. It isn't the most picturesque walk we've ever been on, but as a group walk venue, I think it is good & we hope we will get some company on the day ;)

Patty1, it would be lovely to see you & Ruby if you can make it. But, yes, I'm sure we will arrange more walks in this area in the future & it's good to know there are more like minded Schnauzer owners nearby :D

Hi Alison
We hope to come along with Dylan. I actually work right next to the country centre but never thought of going for a walk there! I might be able to round up a few more schnauzers and their owners from the worcestershire area. :o3 Thanks for organising it.

Yay :D Would be great if we're not on our own :ympray:
We saw only one mini on Saturday when we did the recce, but not to speak to. If you can round up some extras, that would be even better \:D/
Hope to see you & Dylan there :-bd

Hi, I've not been on here much recently, but Widget and I will be at the Worcester Schnauzerfest :D

Have been to the Country Park once and it's a lovely venue, secure to let them off lead and lots of variation between the meadows and woods.

Widget says its also a great place to harass some squirrels :ymdevil: :-bd

Hello, so glad you came on and that you & Widget can join the walk, that's brilliant news ;;)

It was the most suitable venue we tried and I hoped it might be accessible for those of us in the Midlands or close, but south of Birmingham.

OH & I were only saying this morning it was a good job Alfie can't climb trees. He stands on his hind legs with the front ones on the trunk staring up after the pesky squirrels, but that's about it :)) Looks like Widget has just blown that assumption out of the water =)) . Great photo.

Look forward to meeting you both soon :ymhug:

:( :( :( I am so sad that we can't make this walk :(( :(( :((
We travel to then back from Pembrokeshire the previous two saturdays. I usually work saturdays until 2pm and as I'm self employed, can't take three saturdays off in a row :( :( :(
I am hoping that we can maybe do the Bristol walk, all being well with Pixie, so will get to see you there Alison. :-bd

Hi just wondering if we have an idea of numbers for the worcester walk. My daughter would like to make some doggie biscuits to sell towards DBARC. Should we have registeted for the walk somewhere? Im not very good with facebook. Also how far is the walk?
