Lottie is a 6 year old Rottweiler and Sky is a 4 year old Jug, Lottie has been a resident dog since she was 8 wks old, she enjoys her walks with her friends but also likes to chill out on the sofa as much as possible. 

Sky became a resident dog in 2017 and has changed so much in that time, she loves to see visitors and meet new friends.

Both Lottie & Sky help other dogs gain their confidence and help teach the youngsters how to read body language in many of our services
