Barking Mad Weekend breaks has gone Xtreme with the introduction of a ‘super summer fun’ weekend running from Friday 29th June to 2nd July 2018 where you can put yourself to the test with an eight mile CaniCross run with Leigh Francis and her wonderful rescue Labrador, Bob. The route is relatively gentle through the wonderful ancient woodland around Wenlock Edge but is designed to test the mettle of dog and owner with some navigational challenges.
There is also ‘open water swimming’ at Cardingmill Valley Reservoir. Life jackets are provided for your canine companion and a fully qualified swimming coach will be there to direct a series of activities for you and your dog. Wet suits will also be available for hire in advance.
Then there’s some tough hiking through the hills followed by in the evening by an opportunity to learn how to massage your dog and the chance to introduce some relaxation techniques to calm your dog after an exhausting day.
Fantastic home cooked meals are provided along with all the comforts of home, once again, in the fantastic setting of Henley Farmhouse.
A good level of physical fitness of both dogs and owners is necessary for this weekend.
Cost of the weekend is £475 inclusive of all activities, equipment, accommodation and meals.
