Dogs love to get muddy. Wash your pooch down in between travelling from different sites. This will help stop the spread of pathogens and invasive species.
Dogs and Livestock
Cattle graze on certain parts of Cannock Chase. Keep your dogs on a lead if you enter a grazing paddock to stop your animal chasing livestock.
The Chase is home to many deer - this means ticks can be quite common. If bitten you will need to remove it as soon as possible. Contact your vet for advice.
