Dog Trainer recommending Woodfarm Barns

Clearly we have dog-friendly accommodation which our guests love as you can see from our testimonials but we are also delighted that a highly experienced dog trainer, Tony Cruse, has now stayed here and is recommending us on his website!

Tony Cruse dog trainer

Tony has instructed at a variety of successful training schools and currently manages and runs Galleywoofers Dog Training Club near Chelmsford in Essex.

This is what Tony & Jo had to write in the guest recommendation book in  the Granary after their stay;

“Short Break away from home and work. Fantastic place to unwind. Easy to walk our dog Motley along the lanes. Having a fenced in garden was a bonus for the dog and the barn was snug and practical. The Indian takeaway delivered which was great and we also visited the Chilli Farm 🙂 Thank you Carl, back in the Summer!”

Although not local to here, many of our guests live in South Essex and North London and Tony has very kindly offered a 5% discount to Woodfarm customers! You need to mention Woodfarm when booking classes or behavioural visits though so don’t forget!

For more information on what Tony can do for you and your pooch visit his website.

Thanks Tony, see you soon!
