Welcome to "Walking the Dog", an occassional series which brings you classic walks of the Perth/Fremantle area. We will also endeavor to keep readers up to date with events concerning off-lead areas in the region.

You are invited to nominate walks in your area. Suitable ones will be test driven by baddog and resident K9s Matti and Neddy.
