A new doggy day care is opening in Loddon this weekend.

Howlett's Hounds, the first doggy day care in the area, is launching this weekend with a special open day.

The open day will run 11am until 2pm on Saturday, December 2 offering a great chance for both owner and pup to explore the centre. The event will welcome visitors with a balloon arch, goody bags and vouchers.

The day care is owned and run by Molly Howlett with help from her partner Jo. Molly has been a veterinary nurse since 2018 however she wanted to start a new adventure and, after spotting a gap in the market, decided to start Howlett's Hounds.

The centre is home to a park area complete with an obstacle course, a cosy area, a puppy section and an outdoor area.

Molly was also inspired by her five dogs; Oscar, Milly, Murphy, Harley and Biggie all of which have tested some of the facilities.

The day care also has plans to expand by hiring an on-site groomer once the business becomes settled in.

Howlett's Hounds is located in Unit C, Loddon Industrial Estate in Little Money Road.
