There’s never a bad time to walk your dog to or from a pub, however Autumn is definitely our favourite. The season of ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ holds the promise of crisp conditions and the added interest of leaf piles for inquisitive hounds.

If you are one of the people visiting the areas surrounding Sawley who are looking for dog friendly walks, or better still a dog friendly Inn with nearby walks, then look no further than Spread Eagle. Use us as a welcoming base from which to get into the great outdoors, enjoy some fresh air and start or finish your walk with a pint or a meal from our excellent selection of menus.

Walking your dog in Ribble Valley

Not only will your dog enjoy walking here, it’ll probably be enjoying a cooling dip in the River Ribble at some point too.  Both the river and the Ribble Way footpath run right past our doorstep so finding some dog friendly fun is really not a problem.  If you’d like a bit more of a guide, then try this walk from Sawley up to Bolton By Bowland for starters it’s a fantastic half day stroll.

If any of that sounds tempting, then why not have a think about visiting us.

Seasonal dog walking tips

Whenever you are planning to walk, there are a few tips you should follow to make sure every adventure is a happy one. On shorter, darker days; Invest in some high viz for you and your dog and carry a dedicated torch.

When the days eventually get brighter and warmer, replace the high viz and torch with sunscreen and water (for you and the dog). Then, whenever you go remember that having a charged phone is a modern day essential, as is keeping your pooch on a lead, especially in open countryside.

Enjoy the walk and we’ll look forward to hearing all about it when you get back.
