Bring your dog for a fantastic holiday in the Lake District National Park; close to spectacular fells, forests and dog-friendly beaches. Most pubs/cafes and tourist activities are dog-friendly. Choose either a comfortable apartment with lovely views in a quiet village or Glamping in a tipi on a beautiful, quiet campsite by the coast.
You can tailor your stay with a choice of training sessions from 2 hours to 20 hours. So you can make the training the main focus of your break or simply a part of a lovely trip to the Lakes.
Stay in a Tipi:
Why not try a wonderful, relaxing holiday in a tipi? Fully equipped for a hassle free, comfortable and cosy glamping experience. Each Tipi has a wood burning stove installed which provides plenty of warmth during your stay. The setting is truly beautiful. Watch the sun set over spectacular coastal views.
This experience would include the unique option of specialist one to one training for you and your pooch or a Bronze Plus Family Fun experience for up to 4 people (a minimum age of 13.) If fewer people book they will have a longer experience. This experience includes full tuition and individual supervision throughout the session. Includes extra cuddle time with your team (photos, videos etc.) and individual sponsorship certificates for you chosen rescue dogs.
Consider the fun you can have with your dog/s when staying for a few days in a large 21foot Tipi. These are designed for up to 6 people but I would suggest up to 4 for more comfort.
Whilst we offer the dog training it is important that your dog is house trained and even better crate trained. They must not be left unsupervised in the tipi.
The tipis are situated at Harbour Lights Camp site in the South West Lake District on the coast so miles of sandy beaches and sand dunes. You will have awesome views of nearby fells and Black Combe, the Duddon Estuary and Hodbarrow Nature Reserve fresh water lagoon. Water sports can be booked on the lagoon.
Larger groups can be accommodated we have 2 21foot Tipis plus other tents/pods can be hired.
