Ballybolley Forest with Pack of Paws Belfast Dog Walking Club

I recently found this group Pack of Paws Belfast Dog Walking Club on Facebook and was really interested in the idea as it was a way for dogs and their owners to meet up for walks, talk about all things dogs and find new places to go for walks and trips out.

We went to the walk in Ballybolley forest near Ballynure and met up with 2 other dogs and their owners (Pixie a german shepherd and Bear a bernese mountain dog). Bonnie was really excited to meet the others and was soon off the lead happily exploring.

Sniff all the things!

Bonnie had a load of fun playing chasies with Pixie and jumping in and out of the streams alongside the paths. I really liked that it was a nice big area to let the dogs off lead and it was fairly quiet – only coming across a few other people and dogs.

All our training with Bonnie seems to have paid off as whenever she was quite far ahead and went off the path out of sight I panicked a bit and called her to me. It was so amazing to see her running full sprint towards me, was very proud of her and all our training together.

Mucky pup!

Needless to say with all the running in streams and mud a bath was badly needed after!

Can I get out already?

Overall we both really enjoyed ourselves and have plans to go back!

I nearly lost my way getting there so I’ve included the map below:
