Because there is life beyond the track



‘Website Woof’ presents Tyson.

We hope you enjoy reading the volunteers’ descriptions of their walks with the hounds. If you would like to find out more Tyson 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.

Rebecca had the pleasure of taking the lovely Tyson to Painshill Park with kennel mate Belle and a former kennel hound, Anna.

Tyson needed help to get into the car, but settled down quietly in the back. He had no problems leaping out once we arrived at the car park.

He was keen to get on with the walk, but is such a lovely gentle boy who doesn’t pull on the lead. He gave the ducks and geese a glance but did not react. He did need a bit of reassurance when meeting other breeds both big and small, preferring to lean on me and stare while they passed by. He showed a quiet interest in the toddler’s running around the café area, and was keen to meet people passing by and approached them with a wagging tail.

At the end of the trip Tyson took treats like a real gentleman and didn’t appear to be food orientated. With a little more time and experiences outside the kennels this boy will flourish. He is a real gentle giant; don’t be misled by his size or name.
