There’s nothing we love more than pampering our gorgeous pooches. Everyone enjoys dog walks with plenty of mud, running and potentially jumping in dirty ponds, but the prospect of having mucky paws in our cars and home tends to put a slight damper on the mood.
However, Cambs owners can say goodbye to muddy paw-prints on their carpets, as a new bathing unit has been installed at a local park. You can give your pups a warm, soapy shower, dry them off and take them home as if fresh from the groomers.
Hundreds of Cambridge residents took to social media to express their excitement at the opening of the new ‘dog-wash’ in Milton Country Park, Milton, Cambridge. It opened yesterday (May 4).
