Dog training and resources
Learn how to have fun and safe walks in Scotland’s outdoors.
Dog training modules
We have been working with dog behaviourist and trainer Natalie Light to develop a FREE online course for dog owners. These videos are packed full of great tips that will give dog owners the information and skills to have fun and safe walks in Scotland’s outdoors as well as understand their rights and responsibilities under the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
