Because there is life beyond the track



‘Website Woof’ presents Jackie.

We hope you enjoy reading the volunteers’ descriptions of their walks with the hounds. If you would like to find out more Jackie please visit our kennels and talk with a member of staff. The kennels are open daily for hound walking from 11am until 2pm and are located at Burhill Kennels, Turners Lane, Hersham, KT12 4AW.

Christine Cameron took her to Painshill on Sunday 21st October and has this to say:

I had the pleasure of taking the lovely Jackie to Painshill Park today. She came bounding out into the yard very excited to be going out on a walk. She took a moment to decide whether or not to jump in the car but did so on her own when i started to lift her.

From the moment Jackie jumped out of the car at Painshill she thoroughly enjoyed her outing. It was a delight to see her fascination of her new surroundings, especially the strange feathered creatures swimming in the lake who she decided needed closer inspection and so waded straight into the water after them. Jackie is a very sociable hound who wanted to go up to everyone we passed to say hello and was more than happy to be fussed by children who wanted to stroke her.

She was interested in some of the smaller breeds we encountered, but think a lot of this was due to the excitement and newness of her surroundings. Jackie is a fun, affectionate girl, full of life and fascinated by the world outside the kennels so please ask to meet her next time you are at the kennels.
