2013 Sensory & Enrichment Garden for dogs

We turned a normal paddock into something special with the concept of inspiring a dog's five senses. The area includes something for every dog – a raised platform and kennel, water feature for paddling and a sand pit for digging fun. 

Bamboo and water spouts create a gentle atmosphere to help screen off the main site noise; slabs of different textures add interest underfoot; herbs are planted for scent such as catnip, hops, yarrow, St John’s wort and valerian which are reported to have positive affects for dogs.

The project was made possible through donations of goods, services, volunteer and fundraising time.
