Professional Dog Walking

Big-Doggie-Do-2016-Dog-People-Family-Children

The parks in Milton Keynes are enjoyed by dog walkers every day of the year. All professional dog walkers using the parks and green spaces need a licence to operate.

We licence professional dog walkers to ensure that:

  • Professional dog walkers are fully insured
  • All activities are fully risk assessed
  • Professional dog walkers are following DEFRA guidelines
  • All activities follow The Parks Trust code of conduct for walking dogs in MK parks
  • Access to and use of public parks is not inhibited by any activities

To enquire about applying for a commercial dog walking licence, please enquire to the Events and Community Engagement Manager on 01908 233600 or j.dawes@theparkstrust.com

Fees and charges

Dog licences are currently free of charge and commercial dog owners signing up for a licence to operate in our parks will receive a free welcome gift

Social meet ups for dog owners

Dogs are sociable animals and social meet-ups for groups of dog owners in the parks are a nice way to socialise with other dogs, to ensure safety and suitability of these meet ups they do require permission. To apply for free permission for a dog social meet up please contact the events team on 01908 233600 or events@theparkstrust.com  

Organised dog walks and events

All organised activities and events in the parks need a licence.  See the Holding events in our parks pages for information and details on how to apply to host an organised dog walk.

Code of conduct for all dog walkers
