Fantastic Day!

My partner and I travelled to Leicestershire to take part in the Sheepdog Training Experience. All the dogs were incredibly well trained and Nij the instructor was very friendly and informative. We loved the spontaneity of the day and meeting the newest addition to the sheepdogs; little puppy Lara! Launde Abbey (the meeting place) offers hot beverages, which was ideal for after the experience before our drive home! Great day, would truly recommend.
