For the dogs: Open Monday – Thursday 0800 – 1730 Friday – 0800 – 1700
Doggies will have walks, agility training, basic grooming and lots of fun! The Upper Bowling Green is a huge site so plenty of room for romps and chases. There is a maximum of 6 dogs on site each day so they will have lots of love and 1:1 attention. Dogs can be dropped off and picked up from the Dogs Squad entrance on Westerfield Road. There is wheelchair access through the park.
For the people: Open Monday – Friday 0930 – 1600
Many adults with learning disabilities and/or autism gain huge amounts of improvements to their well-being from being around dogs, although many cant own a dog for various reasons. There are so many benefits as all dog owners know; they get us out and about, show us unconditional love, calm us down, and give absolute joy.
About the day
The day will begin with a cup of tea and talk about what the day will bring, introducing dogs and people and pairing them up. I have had years of experience with dog training so we will have some fun doing some basic training and walking.
As The Dogs Squad is a Community Interest Company, it will use all profits to plough into the business. It has already been supported by Inga Lockington who part funded the cost of the fencing through her locality budget – thanks Inga!
