Summer treats for your pooch!

Summer is well and truly here and with temperatures soring it’s important we keep our dogs cool at this time.

Canine residents of Darlington have been keeping cool in a variety of ways from early morning walks to pool parties. Chilled fun has even been incorporated with snack times. We made up some DIY chilled treats and dog friendly lollies and put them for review to: Milo – English Bulldog, Evie – Greyhound and Sandy - Terrier cross.

Five star reviews from all!
