Dog walkers gathered for the first Norwich Best For Pets trainer-led community dog walks.

As part of the Lakenham and Tuckswood Energise project, Norwich Best For Pets have organised eight weekly trainer led walks for dog owners wanting to socialise their pets and as walking exercise for those who do not have a pet dog.

Michele Neave, founder of Norwich Best For Pets said: 'This is an excellent start to the Lakenham and Tuckswood Energise project activity. We have had a very positive response from both dogs and their owners, will I believe ensure that these walks are going to realise their full potential and benefits for all participants.'

'I am looking forward to meeting new and returning dogs and walkers next Sunday'.

Walks will be held each Sunday until November 19, meeting at 10:30 outside Pets at Home; free for energise card holders and £1 per dog for non-card walkers.
