The Great British Dog Walk is back for a fifth year and coming to our area for the very first time.

Dog owners are invited to bring along their faithful friends to the Munden Estate on the edge of Watford, near the M1 and the Meriden, this Sunday.

The walk is in aid of charity and will help raise money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Hundreds of walkers of all ages and dogs of all shapes and sizes will be ‘walking the walk’ to have fun, meet like-minded people and support the charity that trains dogs that help deaf people leave behind loneliness and reconnect with life.

The walk is within the country estate and will take in parkland, farmland, and woodland.

This year, you can help sponsor cocker spaniel Troy’s puppy training. Over the next two years he will be trained to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds, such as the smoke alarm, intruder alarm, alarm clock and oven timer.

It costs around £40,000 to fully train and support a hearing dog for the duration of its life.

On the day there are two walk options – either 6km or 3km routes.
