If any of you follow me on Instagram, you already know I like to take my dog EVERYWHERE with me. I don't believe a dog walk should be a 10 minute walk around the block, they should join in with your adventures too!!
Here are 3 of my favourite (yet so different) dog friendly walks:
1. Bodnant Gardens
Who knew you could take your furry four legged friend around one of the most beautiful gardens in the world? The gardens are open to dogs any day of the week November – February and Wednesday evenings from May – August.
Here are a few of my favourite reasons to visit:
Take a picnic and enjoy the smell of roses and the views of the very photogenic Pin Mill.
Take a walk along the river passing the lovely waterfalls or slip off the stepping stones into the river if you are our dog Milo.
With plenty of seats strategically placed, it's easy to find somewhere to sit and take it all in.

2. Talacre Beach:
With beaches for miles, hilly sand dunes and the opportunity to jump in the waves, Milo always comes back shattered and smelling of the sea (once the wet dog smell has passed).
Take a stroll up to the lighthouse if you dare! Supposedly haunted by a man named Raymond who died of a broken heart.
Even though it is starting too look a bit "rough on the edges", it's still a beautiful site.
Whatever the season, if it's a clear night, the sunsets here are amazing. Just be sure to leave the car park before they lock the gate. In the summer it's 9pm but times may change throughout the year.
3. Moel Famau
I love it here! Whether you want to sweat out a hangover, bust out the stress of work or have a relaxing walk and take in the views, Moel Famau is always the answer. From the top car park, the walk takes approximately an hour allowing a 15 minute break at the top.
Despite the rumours, there is no pub at the top, but there is a Jubilee Tower and views as far as Snowdon on a clear day. The last bit of the walk is a steep climb so be sure to wear suitable footwear.
