As the warmer weather approaches, and more and more dog owners are exploring the UK's coastlines, Dogs Trust, the UK's largest dog welfare charity, are reminding owners to keep their dog on a lead near cliffs to keep them safe. 

Runa Hanaghan, Deputy Veterinary Director at Dogs Trust says:

“We would advise all dog owners to keep dogs on a lead when on cliff paths as a protective measure. It can be tempting to let your dog walk off lead, especially if that’s what they are used to and they are well trained, but keeping your dog on a lead can protect both you and your pet.”
