Walking With Dogs In The English Peak District

Did you know there are no sharp peaks in the Peak District? And that the name is actually thought to come from the Pecsaetan, an Anglo-Saxon tribe no less, who settled here over 1000 years ago?

Well you might do, but you’re probably not here for Peak District trivia. What you’re actually here for is to learn about the best dog-friendly walks in the Peak District, ahead of your house sitter job or UK walking holiday.


We live on the edge of the Peak District and can see Kinder Scout from our back windows.
Everytime we head off to a pet-sitting we say “Why are we going away”


What a beautiful place!
