We have just returned from Australia after 6 weeks away and our 'boys' always go to the same holiday home (kennels) and have been for the past 3/4 years. For anyone in the South East we would highly…Continue

Somewhere in Ashdown Forest. Charlotte seems to know the area well so I was hoping she would be able to give instructions. Charlotte - please remember we need a sheep free zone!!!!

Oh gosh :s all the pressure is on me! We don't have to meet on Ashdown Forest, it was just an idea so if anyone has any better ideas I'm up for that! Finn has a really sporadic recall at the moment, so if anyone knows of any more fenced in places that might be better.

Lois - you can bring whoever you like! Dog-wise... do we all have boys? Just going to make the obvious point that Finn and probably most others aren't castrated :)

Same with our boys wasn't sure if other halves were invited.can't come up with any other venues will check with Hamilton's breeder who lives in Snowhill only other place I can think of is Camber Sands but a long way for most people. Hamilton's recall has always been pretty awful

are there any place along the beach ? a coastal trip would be nice as well :)

Camber Sands(beach) is off lead area with a cafe large car park but a long way unless you're in Kent. The only other place we know is Ferring near Worthing again with a cafe and a nice walk along Kingston Gorse not sure about the beach being off lead

Sorry Charlotte - didn't mean to put the pressure on you just that we discussed meeting in AF previously.

Worthing/Goring/Ferring area is deifinitely off leash October - April as I go there occasionally. However it's only any good if the tide is low else you won't have a beach just a narrow strip of pebble. At weekends and if the weather is nice it can also get very busy with day trippers from 11AM onwards. 

I love Camber but it would be too far to drive for me personally for a mere dog walk (up to 2hrs along a tedious coastal road depending on traffic). However, if the general consensus is that we should meet there I'd be happy to make the trip this once as the beach is divine.

I agree KC was trying to help out with some alternatives surprising how far apart we all are even in the SE
Comment by Charlotte Beeney on March 21, 2012 at 11:39am

Camber isn't TOO far away from me, about an hour and a quarter. I'd be okay to do the drive though.

It's amazing how we have so much beautiful countryside but not many places we can safely walk!

Hi Charlotte maybe we should put a list together and ask the members to vote might make it easier to make a decision
