It’s half-term weekend and the weather looks great in Oxfordshire, so this week’s guide to your dog-friendly weekend is packed full of ways to get outside.
Snowdrops at Waterperry Gardens
There ‘s some great family (and dog) friendly fun to be had at The Waterperry Gardens. Your dogs can join you (on the lead), as you play a game of alphabet ‘I Spy’ in the gardens or enjoy looking at over 60 different varieties of Snowdrop on offer!
Cogges Manor Farm
Cogges is a great place to spend a sunny afternoon. Dogs are welcome on a lead (and water bowls are provided).
This weekend children can be Owl Detectives, as they join Science Oxford’s resident ecology expert, Roger, to learn more about these wonderful animals and dissect an owl pellet to identify the unlucky creatures that formed the owl’s last meal.
The workshop cost is £5.50 per participant, or free for Cogges season ticket holders.
National Trust Trails
There is a whole range of great walks and trails to be found at National Trust properties all over Oxfordshire and nearby in Buckinghamshire this weekend. From bug home building, to monument hunting and winter trails, we are sure there is something for every paw to enjoy.
Rowbarge dog walk
Grab your walking boots and head to The Rowbarge for a dog walk to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind. After the success of their New Year’s Day walk, The Rowbarge in Woolhampton (near reading) has organised another walk for Saturday 23rd February.
The plan is to meet at 10:30am for bacon sandwiches, tea and coffee before going for about an hour’s walk and returning in time for lunch!
Sounds to us like the best way to spend a morning.
Whatever you get up to this weekend with your dog, I hope it’s totally pawsome!
