Ticks are one of the hazards you need to aware of. As your dog wanders through bracken and long grass, it is easy for it to pick up juvenile ticks which will then attach themselves to you dog. They can spread disease to your dog and their bite can cause an allergic reaction and swelling. It is wise to treat your dog prior to visiting the Lake District and to have a tick removal tool just in case.
When bringing your dog to the Lake District it is important to remember to you’re your dog on a lead when walking through fields containing stock (sheep & cows). Also, beware of crossing fields where cows have just been put out with their calves (April – May – June), the cows are protective of their young and may treat you and your dog as a threat. Give such animals a wide berth or better still, find an alternative route avoiding them completely. If they make a move to run at you follow the advice of the Ramblers Association- you should let your dog off the lead and make a quick exit from the field.
Even though you been away with your dog on many previous occasions, its likely that you will forget some vital piece of equipment or need to buy extra food. Here is a list of pet shops that you might find useful.
