Point-to-points provide an ideal opportunity to spend a day in the countryside with your dog, although please remember that dogs must always be on a lead, should not be left in cars unattended (particularly in warmer weather), and to clean up after them. For point-to-points held at permanent racecourses, you should check in advance whether dogs are allowed to enter.
