‘I love walking my dog Digby in the park in London. It’s a great way to let the world pass you by and get your head around things.’

Lucy Watson, Made In Chelsea star

‘One of my favourite walking routes is the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which twists and turns its way along 186 miles of spectacular Welsh coastline. The path can be enjoyed in short sections. We recently featured a linear walk (about five miles) from Saundersfoot to Tenby, which offered some glorious views, great off-lead walking for the dog, plus some dog-friendly places to eat in Tenby.’

Sarah Wright, editor, Your Dog magazine

‘I love walking Monkey, Coco and Roxy on Sugar Loaf Mountain, near where I live in County Wicklow. They keep you healthy and we keep them healthy, plus you get all the other benefits… Like peace and quiet.’

‘My favourite walk is in Thetford Forest in Norfolk. It’s so peaceful and I love watching the deer and the birds.’

Caroline Kisko, secretary, the Kennel Club

‘Martinshaw Wood, Leicestershire, is a large woodland with wonderful wide pathways, and a blend of conifer trees and strong natives such as oak. My long-haired Jack Russell, Nelly, loves exploring the undergrowth, and has plenty of space she can run around in.  What’s also great about Martinshaw is that it’s home to species such as the mistle thrush and great spotted woodpecker – making the walk even more interesting for me!’

Steve Marsh, Woodland Trust

‘My favourite walk with my Golden Retriever William is Bamburgh Beach in Northumberland. Miles of golden sand as far as the eye can see, overlooked by the historic Bamburgh Castle.’

Linden Cartwright, Eukanuba community manager

I live near Heathrow airport and am fortunate enough that there are access points along the river available for dog walks.You can walk up a slight hill and actually see all of the airport and watch the planes come in and take off.There are Beautiful Swans,Moore hens, ducks and even fresh fish to watch and feed.,Even a lone Heron frequently stops and gets his feed from the stream.There are Horses in one of the fields in the distance ,a great place to walk the dog.

Nothing like walking in the country and finding a stretch of river and letting the dogs (as i have 3) swim to their hearts content and site on the bank watching them.

I have a very large dog and I love to walk him on a tiny road near us, right next to the woods.It's great as we often see buzzards, pheasants and once we even saw a mole! When my oldest son comes back home from London to the country he loves that walk - it's about 2 miles but on the flat so I can do it despite having back problems.The dog loves it too!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try Always Discreet. I feel more comfortable now and even my family and friends have been able to talk openly about this. I can now play with my boys on the trampoline without worrying now, it's all the simple things I couldnt/wouldn't do before but now I can. Thank you x
