Just take time for yourself and your four-legged friend, go out into nature, romp and play to the top of your bent. Up in the Harz Mountains, dogs and owners will find the space they need to relax together from everyday life.
That way, the numerous and extensive open spaces in the Upper Harz become a huge playground. Small streams that run through the idyllic landscape again and again offer a refreshing change. Tree trunks along the way, rocks in the forest, sticks and Co. make a hike through the Harz forests an adventure for your four-legged friend.
And for the little highlights in between, there are dog-friendly excursion destinations right outside the door.
Up in the Harz – you don’t need more.
"The dog is part of our life. For our dog, we are his whole life."
"A dog is more than just a pet. He is a friend, a confidant, a comforter - a personal guardian angel, so to speak"
Please note: In the period from March 1st to July 15th, the leash must be kept on in the forests and meadows Up in the Harz to not disturb wildlife when they breed and raise their offspring.
You know your dog best, you know exactly when your four-legged friend has which needs, when the dog would like to play or rather be left alone. This is often difficult for outsiders and non-dog owners to estimate, especially for children. Please keep your dog on a leash near playgrounds, in localities and crowded places. Even on deserted paths, e.g. when hiking, it is advisable to call the dog over to approaching pedestrians and let it run “to heel”. The next open space already awaits you to frolic around.
HERE you can find the overview “Considerately along the way with the dog”.
