Special Agent Cooper

...who is clearly talented!

He's just moved to Wool so is just starting to find out about the local area - right up his street as he loves to sniff & explore so he loves long hikes as well as a good run and a wrestle with his pals.

Boz loves nothing more than being out for the day walking with Sarah, maybe at Upton Country Park or the beaches - Sarah says 'we call it our Boz days!'

Bentley 1505


A Llhaso Apso who looks laid back here but definitely enjos a good romp in the long grass at Hengistbury Head and his regular walks around West Moors Plantation.




New members who've already used the 'join us' form or who joined at pit stops but haven't sent a photo remember you can always add your photos later, just send to: with your name and joining month!

BETTY -  a 16 week old Sprocker.  Anne says that she's keen on Delph Woods, and also Upton Country Park's new off-lead fields.  She's especially looking forward to using the new securely-fenced area and says it will be 'just right' for training puppies. 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

BELLA - A White Westie who lives in Poole, another fan of Hengistbury Head.  Susan says 'My dog walks always give me time to get life in perspective and bring joy to my life'.

LAYA & LILY are German Shepherds who have been rescued and rehomed in Chickerell.  Favourite places include Pirates Cove, Wyke Regis & Puddletown Forest.

BASIL - James' Jack Russell who is rather keen on Bournemouth Beach and Epsom Golf Club!

JUDY - Judy is a 9 year-old border collie who has been deaf since birth but Jenny says that nevertheless she has participated in Obedience, Agility, Rally and has even had a go at Heelwork to Music. She's achieved Bronze, Silver & Gold Kennel Club Godd Citizen Awards.  What a star!  Jenny is a trainer and Judy is her demonstration dog in classes.  Favourite places include Sandbanks & Studland beaches and Wareham Forest too.

MAX - A young labrador who loves open spaces like Badbury Rings and the beach.

FUDGE & LOKI - were rehomed from the Midlands Branch of Golden Retriever Rescue - Debbie says they were a 'BOGOF' offer!  They bound around the lovely Kingston LAcy estate - which will be added to the 'Out & About' pages information soon.

ISABEL & MINNIE - now here's an unusual couple - a Springer Spaniel and a Miniature Dachshund, Marion says they are her constant and loveing companions, always ready to welcome her home.

SUMMER - a flat-coated retriever, and 'a beauty'.  Now that she's 11, Angela says, she's very steady - but it's taken a while!  Hmm I think quite a few of us will empathise with you there.  Angela tells us that The Purbecks are a beautiful place to walk - well there again we can empathise with that! 

BELLA - Celia takes this 6 month-old labrador retriever to The Milldown - a lovely sociable meadowland with a good perimeter path.

TILLY - an unusual Yorkie/Schnauzer cross who lives in Beccles in Suffolk and will be holidaying with us soon - so the 'Out & About' and 'dog-friendly' pages should be really useful!

MAX who's a very young cocker but looking forward to visiting beaches on outings from his home in Misterton.

Last but not least!  BUMBLE from Boscombe, a Llhaso Apso who joined earlier in the year.  He's a great little walker - from the cliff -tops to the beach proms, from Moors Valley to Kingston Lacy and Upton Country Park - a real little explorer!
