Welcome along to the fun, Rocky!

Welcome Rocky!This handsome chappie is Rocky, who joined Dogs Buddy on his first walk today, and loved every minute! I usually see Rocky and his owner in the small local park as he plays with Mickey most mornings. Rocky loves to chase for sticks and explore. We went to Longford Park where he met some other doggy friends and played along with them in the sun. He didn’t want to come back home by the end of his walk but he was certainly worn out from all his excitement.  Mickey and Rocky

A big welcome to Elsa!

Hello to ElsaA big welcome to Elsa, the lovely black cocker spaniel! Elsa!

Elsa joined us for her first walk and we went around Longford Park. Elsa loves to have a good sniff around and enjoy a bit of chasing a ball or a stick. She looked a bit scared of other big dogs that came over to say hello but saw them off with a playful bark. Mickey came along too and enjoyed her company. I think he’s getting used to all this female attention from our other female doggy clients 🙂

A dog walk in Longford Park

For dog walking, I take a trip to Longford Parklongfordentrance2, on a regular basis as it is only down the road from where we live.

Longford Park is the largest municipal park in the borough covering approximately 22 hectares. The park is located in the Stretford Area of Trafford.

The park hosts many events during the year, including the annual Stretford Pageant which has been held since 1919. The vision for the future development of the park centres on its role as a diverse leisure facility for both local and community use and those from within the wider catchment area who use the park for both formal and informal recreation. You can enter the park from various entrances and it offers many facilities such as;

  • Longford Athletics Stadium. Firswood Community Centre, Trim Trail, Tennnis Courts, Basketball Courts, Bowling Greens, Junior and Senior Play Areas, Longford Hall Gardens and Seating Area, Larry Sullivan Gardens and Seating Area

One of the main attractions here is Pets Corner, the cute little animal sanctuary. Here they have rabbits, geese, ducks and exotic birds, however, dogs are not allowed in this section for obvious reasons so you may want to go in individually if there are more than one of you taking your dog out walking.
