Part of our home from home dog boarding service includes exciting doggy excursions. From full day trips to overnight stays in Wales, we offer the hounds an experience of a lifetime.
Recently we took the boarding dogs for a wonderful day out to Compton Verney. Based in the heart of Warwickshire, it’s around than half an hour’s drive from Coventry. Scattered with miles of public footpaths, you can do a variety of routes around the site, exploring local woodland, beautiful lakes and quaint little villages. We stopped off for a coffee and snacks in the grounds itself which are dog friendly. There is also a weird and wonderful art installation in one of the meadows which dogs can also sniff and explore on lead.
This dog friendly walk is around four miles and takes you through the gallery grounds as well as through meadows and crop fields. You will pass the picturesque village of Combrook with its ancient church and wildflower meadows. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs in the area, offering delicious pub grub and nice cool drinks. We visited The Antelope in Lighthorne for a late lunch.
As well as a fantastic dog day out, these new experiences help to build on the dogs social skills in new environments. Lots of new smells, sights and sounds to broaden the senses, as well as learning how to behave around livestock and busy surroundings. Find out more about our dog home boarding service.
