Paws in the Chilterns

We want to celebrate our furry friends who enjoy the countryside as much as we do!

Many of you would probably agree that one of the best ways to enjoy the Chilterns is alongside a four legged companion. Walking the dog is so much more than just a part of the daily routine; it can often provide moments of calm and tranquillity in an otherwise chaotic world. It can be a wholesome and therapeutic activity, a chance to explore parts of the countryside that you might not have done otherwise, a chance to share moments as a family and even an opportunity to meet new people. Perhaps most of all, it can bring such happiness to see your dog (or dogs!) experiencing such delight as they run around and explore new places with their tails a wagging!

Our conservation and path maintenance volunteers work hard so you can enjoy the countryside at its best. But we know that people aren’t the only ones to appreciate their efforts! We love the fact that dogs also reap the benefits of the pathways, woodlands and commons that we work hard to maintain.

To celebrate this, we’re launching a Paws in the Chilterns campaign! We would like you to share with us pictures of your dogs enjoying the Chilterns. The three winning dogs will each receive a voucher to redeem at Sypmly Pet Foods; a local pet food producer based in Chesham that makes pet food free from artificial colours, preservatives and flavours.

To be in with a chance of winning, here’s what you need to do:

1)      Take a photo of your dog (and you if you’d like) enjoying the countryside.

2)      Either email it to us at OR share it with us on Facebook & Twitter using #PawsInTheChilterns (don’t forget to tag us in the post using @ChilternSociety)

3)      Include the name of your dog and where the photo was taken

4)      If your dog would like to show his or her appreciation for the work that we do, please text ‘CHIL02 £5’ to 70070 make a £5 donation.

We look forward to receiving your photos!

In order for your entry to qualify, please submit it via the methods above no later than 31st October.
