We all love cuddly animals, and a lot of us at university have had to move away from our pets back home. If that’s you, then you definitely need to hear about this little place tucked away in Somerset. There, you can book for you and your friends to play with and cuddle up to a whole pack of well trained Golden Retrievers. Here’s why you need to go to The Somerset Folden Retriever this summer.
1. The Golden Retriever Experience is owned by The Dog Whisper
Father and daughter team, Nicolas and Lauren, learnt so much about Golden Retrievers that they decided to form The Dog Whisperer UK to teach dog owners across the country how to train their pets. They’ve since grown their pack, and they now have the Golden Retriever’s paradise in Exmoor National Park.
2. They accommodate for extra needs
If you and your friends or partner want to visit The Golden Retriever Experience but one or all of you are on the ASC spectrum, or are blind or deaf, they promise to be able to accommodate you. They’ve even said that they can accommodate for elderly people and those recovering from brain injuries.
3. You can pay for your session to be photographed or filmed
The team at GRE can provide you with a local photographer to cover all or part of your time there for around £30 an hour. So if you want to use the session for a special occasion like a proposal or a birthday, you can trust that there’ll be some insta-worthy pics at the end of it all.
4. You can buy gift certificates for the GRE
Gift certificates for a fixed date or for an open booking can be booked through the team, from April to October each year. They will personalise the gift certificate for you to make it the perfect gift.
5. The GRE has a customer rate with local hotels
Since the GRE is quite tucked away in Somerset, you can go and stay in The Luttrell Arms Hotel in Dunster or The Porlock Weir Hotel in Porlock. You can call them and ask for the GRE price for the cheapest accommodation.
6. You pick how long you stay
You can choose to book anywhere from 2 to 8 hours at the GRE. So depending on how many puppy cuddles you need, you can accommodate for yourself within your booking!
7. You can take your dogs!
If you have pets at home and want to bring them on the journey, The Golden Retriever Experience welcomes other well-behaved dogs, as long as they’re friendly and trained.
