  • Professional dog walkers are following DEFRA guidelines
  • Professional dog walkers are members of an appropriate professional body
  • All activities follow The Parks Trust code of conduct for walking dogs in MK parks

Fees and charges

There is an annual administration charge 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 the 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

Organised dog walks and events
