All dogs are exercised four times per day. Dogs are lead walked on various walks in over 200 acres of adjoining orchards, through our direct access private gate and off lead in our secure paddocks, maybe playing with a ball or Frisbee if they wish. The individual exercise needs of our guests are catered for, to suit old and young alike.
