Don’t forget if it’s Hot, Hot, Hot

We have had some very high temperatures this year so once again we are mindful of the effects heat can have on all the dogs.  As ever if needed we will as much shade as possible and there will be an area for your own gazebos and shelters (please put these up in a safe way and watch out those guy ropes are not trip hazards).

You can bring ringside sun shelters for your dogs and we will have people patrolling to make sure all is well.  Spring Lodge Vets will have a stall so they are there should there be any emergencies.

We also provide bins of water to wet down towels etc to keep dogs cool and safe if it does get hot.

In our 10+ year history we have been rained off, nearly blown off, survived thunder and lightening and had super hot days so whatever the weather we will be there to welcome you.

If you bring a gazebo or other large sun shelter one of our team will be along to ensure it is safe (as required by the country park) if you need any assistance please find one our hi-viz team members.
