We have three wonderful farm dogs at ‘Our Backyard’. Fraser is a Groodle, Frankie a Border Collie and Jack a Kelpie.
Did you know that a dogs sense of smell is at least 40x better than humans and some have such good noses they can sniff out medical problems?
Dogs rely a lot on their sense of smell to find food, potential dangers, and friends, so needless to say they sniff a lot.
Dogs are of course one of the best ever therapy animals offering unconditional love, great opportunities for calming pats and hugs and are a big part of our Animal Enrichment programs.
You will find our dogs roaming around and keeping an eye on everyone, stopping in for a pat here and there and occasionally sneaking into the office for a cool nap.
Sponsoring our farm dogs helps us to provide the best care and home for them to keep them happy and healthy.
