Through their dedication and devotion of being Holiday Dogs Hosts they have recently completed a course on 'canine communication', by Talking Paws, a workshop specifically for humans to gain more knowledge and understand on dog's behaviour and how to communicate effectively with them.
Any dog is thoroughly spoiled at Adrian and Sue's, with a lovely sized garden to run around in and daily healthland walks as well!
