P.A.T (Pets as Therapy)

We are very proud that Ilka, ( Roughshoot Agile ) owned by Catrina, Simon and Beth Cornwall has qualified as a P.A.T  ( Pets as therapy ) dog. This means that Ilka will visit local nursing homes, special needs schools and hospitals, in fact anywhere that elderly or sick people will benefit from the love and affection of a friendly loving dog. P.A.T dogs provide comfort, friendship and therapy to people when they most need it.

Well Done Ilka !! 




At the end of August we took all the dogs for a day out , what a fantastic time we all had. We walked for hours through the beautiful saltmarshes just north of The Wash on the Lincolnshire coastline.
