Can you help us maintain the paddock at the back of the house ensuring its a safe and secure place for the greyhounds to run and play in?

South Lakes Branch Paddock

We are currently extending the paddock by a few feet and installing a gate at the bottom end that leads onto the path and the entrance. 
We also want to fence off the large rock at the top end of the garden to make it safer for the dogs.

Give your Greyhound a run off lead and teach recall in our enclosed paddock for £5 per ½ hour.

It's our aim once the paddock is complete to allow Greyhound owners to use it for a donation of £5 per 1/2 hour to allow them a run off lead in an enclosed area and for owners to train them recall. Bookings are by appointment only so we can ensure the branch greyhounds aren't in it when you arrive. When here please help us keep the paddock clean by clearing up after your dog and placing the bags in the bin provided.  Thank you.
