Mindful March – I’m on a lead because…. with Dog Furiendly!

We just came across this post on Instagram yesterday from Dog Furiendly. It struck a chord and was highlighting the importance of understanding why some dogs are on leads while ...

Hello there everyone!  Welcome to 2018! Yes i know, it’s a blog update – they are far & few between here on the OPC blog at the moment!

It’s the start of a new year so we thought it would be a good idea to continue with our pinned post from the last few years, containing all availability & news updates for the year ahead in one place! We have a few dates already and we’ve popped these dates down below; unfortunately it means we will not be offering any services on these dates. Do note that most of these dates fall around holidays or bank holidays so should not effect the majority of regular bookings at all.

Can we also note that in this regard it also works both ways. Can we please ask that all clients who know what holidays they are taking later in the year please notify us well in advance. Do remember that we do not over book our services so we do regularly turn away other clients and enquries as we assume regular bookings will be continuing as normal.

Last minute notifications of holidays really do leave us in rather awkward situations. Please do think ahead and let us know your plans as much as possible!

So here’s the 2018 calendar thingy:
