HETTY & SADIE - Sadie is a very nervous English Setter cross rescued from Spain and can't be let off-lead unless she's in a secure area whilst Hetty (Irish Setter) is fine off-lead and loves running - especially at the beach.  We're still in search of securely-fenced areas to hire, as many people need sole use sessions for training and exercise for dogs with a variety of issues, whilst happily Upton Country Park as well as Slades Open Space now have securely-fenced areas for public use - find them on our 'out & about' pages
