Mooches

Manchester Terrier Mooch

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.  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. Forthcoming mooches are advertised in the Mooch Links and Mooch News below.

More about Mooches

Northern
The Northern division has had a number of successful Mooches on Formby beach, L37 1LJ, with varied numbers of Manchesters in attendance; the record is 39. After the Mooch we convene in the car park for refreshments and a chat before we take our exhausted pooches home. Mooches in new locations have also been included recently.

The South East has walks at different locations and we are always open to suggestions for new places to explore. The numbers attending are gradually growing. As with all our mooches, they are designed as a social gathering and for those that want to know more about the breed. Other dogs are welcome.
