Dogs across East Devon are being invited to take part in a festive muddy walk in the Blackdown Hills at the weekend.

Dunkeswell-based dog walking service Walking Woofs is staging the walk at Blackborough Woods this Sunday (December 9), starting at 10am.

Aside from giving pooches a good workout, the walk will be raising money for various animal sanctuaries.

Walking Woofs’ Jenifer Rowland said: “It’s so important to support animal sanctuaries because at this time of this year, they get inundated with dogs.

“This, sadly, is because people want out with the old and in with the new puppies.

“Santuaries need extra support and do such a fantastic job.”

Anyone interested in attending the festive get-together can call on 07927 059167. The event is open to well-behaved dogs (Christmas jumpers optional) and a minimum donation of £5 per family is asked for.
