South East

The South East has walks planned at different locations and we are always open to suggestions for new places to explore. Details of forthcoming mooches can be found in ‘Mooches Planned in 2019’.

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.  All walks will have option of Cafe, Pub lunch or Picnic.

Check out the posts in Mooch News – South East for more information about forthcoming walks and reports and photos from our past mooches.   Updates can also be found on Facebook: The Manchester Terrier Fan Page
