As well as causing hay fever while they are in flower, please be aware that some grasses have seeds that can cause problems for your dogs. Some grasses have small pointed seeds which can become lodged in the skin of our pets, particularly in the paws and ears. Grass seeds can be picked up while on a walk anywhere where grass grows. The Kennel Club UK, PDSA and other organisations have information on their websites about keeping your pet safe from grass seed injuries.
Magog Down is a countryside site and during the summer months grasses grow in abundance along path edges and in hedgerows, woodland areas and meadows.
