Professional Dog Walking
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 license 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

Fees and charges
From April 1st 2019, there will be an annual charge of £165.00+VAT per Professional Dog Walking Business.
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 email@example.com
Organised dog walks and events

Code of conduct for all dog walkers
