Experience Days with Dogs - Sheepdog experience days, husky sledding, pet grooming & pet photoshoot

 


Experience days are a great way to get closer to animals we love & want to find out more about, and giving an animal lover a gift experience day can really give them something to look forward & a great day out.  Among the many animal gift experiences, there are now a number which concentrate on man's best friend - the dog.  So here's a round up of experience days with dogs.    

 Sheepdog Training Day
