To celebrate National Walk Your Dog Week, Trentham is launching a special membership for dogs at an event celebrating our four-legged friends.

The new membership will be launched during the inaugural ‘Wooftastic’ Weekend of activity, taking place on 2nd and 3rd October at Trentham Shopping Village.

Trentham Dog MembershipThe membership has been created especially for dogs to encourage them to take their human for lakeside walks and enjoy Trentham’s 725 acres of gardens, woodlands and meadows which are ‘pawfect’ for exploring. Members will receive a doggy bag including a membership card with their ‘pawsport’ ID photo and Purple ‘T’ collar tag.

Trentham will also be celebrating all things dog on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October, with the Shopping Village hosting a range of themed offers and activities including half price doggy photoshoots from The Portrait Lounge, free dog behaviourist talks at Doggie Fashions and dog ice cream from Cadwaladers.

With the rise of dogs in need, Trentham will also be supporting its local dog rehoming centre with a stall to raise awareness of some of the loveable pooches looking for homes.

No dog weekend is complete without a dog competition and visitors will also get the chance to enter ‘Trentham’s Next Top Canine’, a competition to find the face of the new dog membership, with organisers on the hunt for the cutest, funniest, fluffiest, and scruffiest dog that Trentham has to offer.

Melissa Lewis, Head of Sales and Visitor Experience, comments: “We are a dog friendly Estate with plenty of visitors each year bringing their dogs to enjoy the Gardens, and the mile-long walk around the lake and historic woodland.

“A walk with a four-legged friend is a great way to boost health and wellbeing and our dog membership reflects the desire of both dogs and their owners to enjoy exploring Trentham.

“We have a range of retailers in the Shopping Village that cater for dogs, including Doggie Fashions, the Portrait Lounge, Outdoor and Country, and a selection of dog friendly cafes and restaurants. We are really looking forward to our first ever ‘Wooftastic’ Weekend and welcoming lots of lovely pooches.”

Dog memberships will be available to purchase from Saturday 2nd October. These can be purchased from the Trentham Gardens entrance for £69, which includes year-round priority access and special privileges.
