We're delighted to announce the opening of our learning disability, autism and acquired brain injury dog walking service.

A dog loves nothing more than a walk (except maybe playing, and being fussed, and sniffing things, and chasing things, and food) - but it can have great benefits to us humans too. You've never been more popular than when you're out walking a dog, so it can be a great way to get to meet new people and to develop social skills. A walk in the park with a four legged friend can also be extremely therapeutic - not to mention the physical benefits.

Those attending the service are supported by our dog walkers to walk the resident Barks & Recreation dogs as well as the ones we visit on our dog walking service. All dog walkers are given training and risk assessed before they are matched with dogs who are appropriate to their strengths and walking style.

If you or somebody you know would like to use the service or would like more information then please get in touch via the contact section of our website, email us at info@barksandrec.co.uk or telephone 01772 381062.

Thank you,
