For many of us it is very rare to meet another Manchester Terrier (MT) on our walks. These group-walks (Mooches) were set-up to encourage Manchesters and their owners to meet and socialise with others and have fun. All walks normally have the option of Cafe, Pub lunch or Picnic.

The term ‘Manchester Mooch’ was created at the first organised MT walk on Formby beach. It has since been adopted by others across the country to describe a gathering of Manchester Terriers out to have fun and socialise.

Mooches also enable owners and those wanting to know more about MTs to meet with likeminded people who are very happy to share their knowledge and experience of our wonderful breed. Other breeds are welcome to join us on our Mooches.

Some group walks are well established and others are in the early stages. Regions and areas with established mooches are listed in the side menu.  Each page includes contact details, details of forthcoming walks and reports from recent walks along with some fantastic pictures.  Some of these regions also have a facebook page. Ad hoc mooches are advertised below in Mooch news and in the British Manchester Terrier Fan Page. facebook page.  Please take your time and browse through the posts about recent walks and see some wonderful pictures.
