A new year always brings changes and for the dogs out at our kennel facility 2017 should bring some great changes to help improve their quality of life while staying with us.
Now that we have improved the physical building it is time to improve each dog's experience as best we can.
With this in mind we hope to start to implement the "Open Paw" system over the coming months.
The program is the brainchild of Certified Pet Dog Trainer Kelly Gorman, and world renowned animal behaviorist, Dr. Ian Dunbar and has been designed to reduce stress levels in shelter dogs and thus to help increase re-homing rates. You can read up on it here: http://www.openpaw.org/
For this to happen we will be changing our opening hours and whist it may inconvenience some of our human visitors, you may be assured it is being implemented solely to improve the lives of our canine visitors.
Starting on 1st of February 2017 the kennels will now be open to the public as follows:
Thursday: 2 - 4pm
Friday: 2 - 4pm
Sat: 12 - 4pm
Sunday: 12 - 4pm
Monday: 2 - 4pm
