Doggy Day in the Garden

Doggy Day in the Garden

Don’t forget, this Sunday is your latest chance to bring along your pet pooch for a rare opportunity to stroll around the botanic garden.

Sunday March 9 is the latest date in our Doggy Day series, when we welcome well-behaved mutts (and well-behaved owners!) into the Garden for the day.

Curator Simon Goodenough said: “The most frequently asked question by would-be visitors to the Garden is: ‘Are dogs allowed?’ so we are really reacting to public demand by holding this Doggy Day.”

Simon said there were some basic rules such as dogs being kept on leads, off the flower beds, out of the buildings and that owners clear up after their pets:  “Because we don’t usually have dogs here, we are asking people to act responsibly and be considerate as we are not geared up for poop scooping.”

Not that Simon is expecting any problems, though: “There’s plenty of room for everyone here and plenty to explore. Many of our members and visitors are dog owners and we know they love the Garden and respect what we have here so there’s no reason to think it will be anything other than another fabulous day out at the best garden in Wales.”
