Big Walkies is a community group which was set up in 2011 by local women Becca (St Ives) and Jackie (St Neots). Big Walkies is completely free and meets up weekly and monthly across Cambridgeshire. You don't even need a dog to join them! All they ask is that you register so that you are aware of the Terms and Conditions and then you're good to go!
Walking with dogs is one of the cheapest as well as the most enjoyable ways of ensuring your own fitness as well as that of the dogs. Apart from that, it endows you with the usual benefits of walking i.e. improvement in cardiovascular development, strengthening of muscles and bones, low blood pressure, etc. Then, there is also a social benefit of walking. People who go walking with their dogs are often believed to be friendly and approachable by others. So, when you join Big Walkies, you might end up making new friends as well. All in all, right from the social viewpoint to the health perspective, joining Big Walkies holds lots of benefits, just for you!
