Our dogs can try their paw at agility, have a game of ball or just enjoy a good gallop around. All of our dogs are assessed on arrival and, if necessary, go to ‘school’ in our Ark Academy to work with our Animal Behaviourist. Here they can improve their social skills, general obedience and manners, to increase their chance of adoption. We also have an outdoor training compound where staff and volunteers can work one-to-one with dogs on specific behavioural programmes.
The Dog House is a chalet in the grounds, complete with sofa and chairs and an outdoor grass play area with sandpit. All of the dogs love their time in the dog house where they can sit and relax, have a cuddle with one of our volunteers, or dig for treasure in the sandpit!
