One of the fastest-growing cities in the UK, Leeds has been described by Lonely Planet as a 21st Century vision of urban chic. It is also a great place to own a dog! Based upon the number of dogs tagged, the most popular breed in Leeds is shown to be an almost dead heat between the Labrador Retriever and Staffordshire Bull Terrier, followed by the Jack Russell, Cocker Spaniel and Border Collie. The neighbouring areas of Huddersfield and Bradford show a similar pattern of ownership, whereas in Wakefield the Lhasa Apso and German Shepherd are very popular. Around Halifax the trend includes Greyhounds and Lurchers.
The Leeds-Liverpool canal paths (pictured) help to make dog walking an absolute pleasure. Middleton Park with its woods, fields and walkways is definitely worth a visit - described as the green jewel of south Leeds - 630 acres of ancient woodland. A little further afield there is the beauty of the Yorkshire countryside with the moors and hills an inviting prospect. Also why not visit Golden Acre Park which has a circular lakeside walk, Roundhay Park to the north east of the city which has a good off-the-lead area. Its 700 acres offer something for everyone. But don't stop at these - Leeds has so much to offer the dog walker far away from the hussle and bussle of the lively city centre.
