Dogs have a great need for exercise. As in humans, physical activity provides a state of relaxed contentment and tiredness. The ability to move freely to run and play with each other, is essential for a balanced dog, because these activities are reducing energy and train the social skills for dealing with each other.
During the exercise periods, we are consistently present and supervise the dogs to ensure that the group meeting is for each one a carefree and safe pleasure.
On our playing fields, the dogs go exploring and devote themselves to social play with other dogs and the staff. This adequate space creates opportunities for them to face each other according to their nature but other dogs can also be avoided at any time. A range of motion and fair dealing are the basic prerequisite of a pleasurable get-together.
The free-run times are supervised by us continuously.
Hot days are usually much more unpleasant for dogs than for people, because unlike us they regulate their body temperature by panting and have only a few individual sweat glands on their feet.
Both us and our guest dogs find it equally refreshing in the waterfall in such hot weather. The system is surrounded by plants which provides shade in the run area. The Waterfall has two floors and offers ample space for the swimmers.
Most dogs love to splash in the cool waters. Our pond with a solid pool construction in the middle of the run area is big but not too deep, so that even small dogs can cool their feet. Jets provide refreshment.
