Hullard Park

Hullard ParkI’ve driven past Hullard Park quite a few times but never really gave it much thought as I imagined it was only small. I went there a couple of times recently and was pleasantly surprised by its size, and by the look of it too as I didn’t expect much from it.

Hullard Park is situated just off Stretford Road, and just on the border of Hulme and Whalley Range. It is looked after very well with lots of floral bed designs in the main area with 2 open spaced fields just outside of the circular bench area. There is also a children’s play area and wildlife meadow. I have attached a link to the website however, it looks like they are updating the site so this may appear soon.

Here are some pictures taken whilst I was walking around and I would definitely recommend a quick visit maybe as a stop off for a quick walk with your pooch…which is just what I did.

Welcome to Mabel!

2013-06-17 10.15.52Mabel the boxer joined us for walks yesterday, and has met 4 new pooch pals already! I always wonder what the first walk will be with a new canine client, ie if they travel well in the car, will they get on with other dogs, how will they react with me for the first time but I didn’t need to worry. She was great in every aspect and just loves being outside socialising and enjoying herself 🙂

I have met with Mabel and her owner but that was quite a while back. We got chatting and here we are getting out and about on our walks. Mabel may only be with us temporarily so we’ll make sure she has a great time each day. Here are some pics of her having a good time…

Turn Moss Playing Fields

I’ve not done a write-up for a while so here’s a local one to Chorlton, which is a favourite spot for dog walkers. Turn Moss Playing Fields which is just over the road from Longford Park, is a very big field which is handy for playing ball with your pooches as you’ll mostly likely see when you pay a visit there. It is there for football games and will be quite busy on weekend mornings, or when there are organised football games on.

It is actually part of Chorlton Ees Nature Reserve (which I’ll cover very soon) and if you’re out walking your dog through the paths of the Ees you’ll find your dog will be excited to run onto this being a large field for them to let off some steam and have a good run! If you just wanted to walk around all of the field this could take about 40 minutes or so and you could definitely fill an hour of playing chase the ball if you wanted to give your dog some good exercise, or just a good mooch and sniff around.

I was there on Saturday on taking Millie and Henry out and here is a couple of pics:-

Welcome to the gang, Sully!

Sully!Today, I visited Sully who is a lovely and playful chocolate Labrador, who is labr(adorable)! See what I did there 😉

Sully will be joining us for walks next week and his owners say that he loves to play ball and hang around with other pooches. They’ll be no problems arranging this for him!

He also likes to swim and have a paddle so in this nice warm weather we’ve been having recently, we’ll have to take him somewhere that has a lake or river. I was told he also likes carrots so there should be no worries about him missing the ball with his good eyesight.

Welcome to the team Sully and we’ll look forward to taking you out soon 🙂
